The authors use a new approach to analyse the information that a prospective immigrant to Australia would be able to find out about the country from internet sites. They find that the most visible information is heavily slanted towards skilled or business immigrants and that most of it is provided either by governments or migration agents. Web sites hosted by community groups or individuals, or those slanted towards family reunion or humanitarian immigrants, are uncommon among the most visible sites. Copyright.
