Ambiguous map from 2007

This 2007 map by ExploMap shows a distribution of websites over a world map. Their website says it is "based on the websites world classification carried out by Alexa and ComScore. The websites traffic is correlated with the surface of the countries." I wasn't able to tell from their site whether the most "popular" website in each country is listed or if this is relating the relative surface area of countries to the corresponding size/traffic of major websites. (the second seems more plausible given some of the site names...any insight out there on this?) Link to full map
