The 10 Most Popular Websites Around the World
Have you ever wondered which websites are the most popular ones? Which sites are getting the most daily visitors? On which sites people spend most of their times? If your answer is yes to any of these questions, continue reading because in this post you will learn about the 10 mostly visited websites on the internet.
As far as I know, it is impossible to monitor all the web traffic and make an accurate list of the most visited websites; however, there is great website called Alexa, which gives a very good estimation of the traffic stats of websites. If you haven't checked that site before, you should do it now as it is a fantastic tool to have as a webmaster.
Alexa is a highly popular website among websmasters and it is the number one tool to check some important stats about the web in general or a specific website. You can see top lists, as well as site or topic-specific data when you do a search.
As you can see from the image below, Alexa gives very important information about "Hot Topics" around the world, "Top Sites" that get the most visitors and "Hot Products" that people are searching for right now. For the sake of this post, we are interested only in the Top Sites section.
The information Alexa provides is close to real time and it updates frequently. What this means is that the site that is at #1 today may not be at the first spot tomorrow. It all depends on a very complicated algorithm and user statistics gathered from the Alexa Toolbar.
At the time of writing this post, according to Alexa traffic rank, the 10 mostly visited websites around the world are as follows:
I guess we all know about Google, the most popular search engine in the world. Google has been at the 1st spot for a very very long time.
FaceBook, the most popular social network, has become one of the few websites that a great deal of people use every day. Hundreds of millions of people visit Facebook daily and connect with their friends.
YouTube, #1 video sharing site, has become very popular in the last years. Some people spend hours on YouTube every day.
My first favorite search engine, Yahoo, never lost its strength till today. Although it has some very strong competitors like Google, FaceBook and YouTube; with its fantastic email service, and other side-services such as Yahoo Answers and Flickr, I believe Yahoo is going nowhere.
Actually, I haven't used Baidu at all, maybe because it is in Chinese. But we should note that it is #1 Chinese search engine and used by a lot of people around the globe.
Wikipedia, the largest online encyclopedia, is one of the very few websites that I use frequently to make research and learn.
Blogger, where I created my first blogs, is a great site to quickly and easily create nice looking blogs for free.
MSN is the other site of Microsoft which is more like a news portal.
I have very little knowledge about Tencent and Wikipedia says that it is the most popular free instant messaging program of China.
These are the 10 most popular sites at the moment but know that the list may change any time.
