Most visited Websites in the World-Most Popular Websites in the Internet

Updated on August 21, 2013

Google (top web pages of Internet) has been the major player in attracting traffic and as a result Google is dominating all other search engines in terms of attracting traffic over its competitors with massive margin, getting over 70% of the total search in Internet. Yet, there are many competitors doing well and growing gradually every year. So, far the there is no challenge in front of Google. But the upcoming years Microsoft’s Bing is surely going to take some share from Google-signals are visible already- Bing has recently signed an agreement with Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. According to this deal Murdoch’s online news content will be available exclusively in Bing search.

Upcoming years going to be interesting to watch in terms of search market sharing fight between the two heavyweights, Google and Microsoft. If other publications decide to join News Corp. in cutting ties to Google, then definitely there will be significant change in search engine traffic share as far as newspapers are concerned. I have searched the net to get an idea of the most popular websites in Internet and found the following result and glad to know that Wikipedia.org is the 7th most popular websites in the web, which means there is a huge demand of information about the basic things like definition and usage of anything.

      i do not think that google.cn is the third rank in China. it should beyond of 10. because China goverment made some limit for google. of course, google also has some reason of themself.

      Thanks for the detailed list. I would have to agree and say that Bing is definitely one to watch out for. With the huge media corporations getting involved and the money that Microsoft have it is only a matter of time before they become major players.

      The amazing thing is how Youtube has become the second biggest search engine - and in no time at all. Staggering and just shows the vibrancy of the Internet as a whole. What will the tables above be like in 5 years time?

      Thanks a lot for your research. Obviously Google had dominated the search engine and Yahoo just left behind so far. What's the reason behind?

      Thanks jobister for stopping by. You can submit to bing by going to this link bing.com/docs/submit.aspx. For hubpage sumbmission you need to put www before the hub url otherwise it will show some error sometimes you need to put / at the end of hub url,many times for unknown reason Bing might show error,but do give up try 2-3 times by adding www before the url or adding / at the end of url.thanks.

      Wow. This is really good to know. I've noticed that Bing has been "loving me" as of late giving me a decent amount of traffic. Thanks for the research, Andromida. This sure comes in handy.
