We estimate the Doha Delivery Top 37 generated 2,523 orders in September or an average of over 81 per day.
We use page exit rates to estimate the number of orders placed.
An exit rate is the percentage of users who left the site from that particular page. Since our online ordering system is not fully deployed, most visitors to Doha Delivery still call in their orders using our online menus. We are assuming that a user who leaves Doha Delivery after landing on a restaurant menu likely placed an order, especially since the average time a user views each menu is usually over two minutes. Some users may not have placed an order and some may have placed an order with another restaurant and just kept viewing the menus…but we feel the exit rate is still a strong statistic with which to base our estimates.

Specific Restaurant Branches vs. Chain Restaurants
As always the above numbers only represent the popularity of a given restaurant location, which is very accurate for a stand-alone restaurants like Bread and Bagels, American Grill or Sushi Minto, but is not as accurate when analyzing the popularity of chains, like KFC. When considering a restaurant chain, even a small chain, like Yellow Cab Pizza, outperforms any given restaurant branch. Yellow Cab had both its locations in the top 15 in September for a total of 306 pageviews…still behind the current Pizza leader - Papa John’s (Umm Ghuwailina) - with 399 views, but also the fourth highest total for September.
