What are the most visited web pages in the world today? If we bring together the 100 largest platforms, all of them would add 206 billion visits in June 2019. We tell you what they are.
If you wanted to reach the 100th position of the most visited web pages in the world in 2019, you would need to have about 350 million visits in a single month. Using data from SimilarWeb, Visual Capitalist has developed a visual map that compares the size in terms of traffic of these platforms and services so relevant to the online population.
Google, YouTube and Facebook hold the first places, followed by Baidu and Wikipedia. Two of the top ten positions are filled by pornographic content search engines: pornhub and xvideos, whose property is respectively Canadian and Czech. The United States has the vast majority of these famous websites that make up the online fabric, although China has a powerful takeoff with 15 of the first 100 sites in its possession.
Google is the best undisputed website in almost every country in the world. In fact, the 11 Alphabet domains in the ranking that is among the top 100, including YouTube and several international versions of Google, accumulated 90,000 million views … in just one month. The exceptions to Google’s dominant empire are found in China (Baidu) and Russia (Yandex), where local search engines have managed to capture the domestic market.
A competitor who focuses on respecting user privacy, DuckDuckGo, does not stop growing in importance as an alternative to Google’s monopoly: site traffic has exceeded 500 million visits per month.
The golden age of streaming
It is also important to highlight the transmission and exchange of video as a catapult to global Internet traffic, a phenomenon propitiated by the crescendo power of smartphones, the democratization of the network, the improvement of mobile cameras or larger data plans. Users upload short videos to Instagram or Snapchat, consume videos on YouTube, stream their games on Twitch or watch Netflix chapters from their mobile.
If we look at old dogs, classic web portals such as MSN and Yahoo continue to record impressive traffic numbers, while in the case of Microsoft, the acquisition of Github and Linkedin helped the company point to new markets and increase its online presence. The acquisition of Twitch by Amazon proved to be a good bet, and Instagram continues to provide new sap to Facebook, shaken by privacy scandals and undermining the trust of its massive legion of users.
