The Top 10 Most Visited Websites in the World
Google reigns as the most popular website in the world. It is ranked number one across North and South America, Europe, the Middle East and in parts of Africa and Asia. Google maintains this position because the company values constant innovation. So not only do they keep up with market trends the company provides leadership. In this age of digital marketing, online sales and search engines what are the other top sites that web users visit?
According to Alexa.com which tracks millions of internet users and compiles lists of the most-visited websites by country, and globally the other top sites include YouTube and Facebook. The number four site takes us outside the US and brings us to China’s Baidu. It is said that China has the world’s largest internet user population – 731 million as of December 2016.
Wikipedia and Yahoo are next, and the India version of Google is in seventh place. This highlights the fact that the majority of internet use is driven by the search for information.
Among the top 10, people spend the most time (14 minutes and five seconds) on Reddit, and the least amount on Wikipedia, at four minutes 26 seconds per day.
