According to this question, the typical travel.se visitor is single or family with no kids. Except for one specific question, where the singleness of the traveler in question was stated, I have not seen other indications of the typical marital status of a visitor.

Just out of curiosity can we draw a profile of a "typical" Travel.se visitor?

Not that I'm aware of, aside from reading people's profiles. You can get an idea quite often from the question. I suspect you'll find that those looking at things to do near Orlando, say, are (stereo)typically families, while they're more likely to be young single / couples if travelling in Tajikistan.

Perhaps it's time for a survey? :) I'm single, 31, male, from New Zealand, if that helps get the ball rolling.

The idea behind SE sites is that eventually a majority of the traffic is going to come from search engines. So in that sense, the demographics in our case too will depend on someone is searching online for would come across to our site.

Perhaps a better question would be what are the demographics of repeat visitors / top answerers. In that sense yes, I would reckon most here are solo backpackers.

  • +1 for pointing search engine being the main entry to the site.
