We are now four months into 2021 and it’s time to look at the latest Second Life grid statistics to see what’s going on.

- Red: Decline in the stats / data stopped
Second Life Regions
Good news is that the Second Life grid is showing positive net growth at the moment. Most of the growth is coming from the expansion of the Bellisseria continent with new Linden owned regions being added. As many know already the lab connected the Bellisseria continent with Satori continent.
The Second Life land store is open which is making a positive difference now to the grid numbers overall. There has been more interest in private estates since the end of 2020 which is fantastic news. Let’s hope this positive trend will continue for the rest of 2021 and into 2022.

Second Life Daily Concurrency
The Second Life daily concurrency levels have remained steady since the start of 2021. There have not been any huge peaks in the maximum daily concurrency yet. The highest recorded so far for 2021 was on 29th March 2021 with 57, 767 residents online.
It would be nice to see the daily concurrency surpass 60, 000 in the months ahead. Between March 2020 and May 2020 the daily average maximum Second Life user concurrency stayed around the 60, 000 mark.
April 2021 Daily Concurrency Stats
- Maximum Daily Concurrency: 51, 000 to 57, 000
- Median Daily Concurrency: 41, 000 to 45, 000
- Minimum Daily Concurrency: 31, 000 to 34, 000
Second Life Signups
It seems that the Second Life Grid Survey no longer publishes daily metrics for Resident Signups to date. The last update was made on 21st October 2020 with 64, 687, 961 total residents.
This was a useful metric to see the population growth in Second Life and hopefully the data feeds will resume soon.
Second Life Website Traffic
It appears that during February 2021 SecondLife.com traffic dropped to 9.4 million visits. Back in December 2020 it peaked at 12.7 million visits. During March 2021 the website traffic increased to 11 million visits. I would imagine the website traffic will increase in the months ahead.
My next Second Life grid statistics will be published in July 2021.
