As you can see, the increasing of the total number of players (chess, Go, poker holdem) is constant while the number of visitors is hardly predictable when the most come from Google.
It is not easy to conclude anything but it seems that the popularity of chess did not change for years. The number of running games indicates that Go & Poker holdem attract more and more players though.
