Billions of people frolic on the Internet every day and visit their favorite websites. The Similarweb page lists the most popular websites. TECHNOLOGY BUTTON has selected the top 10 worldwide.
Search engines, social media and porn popular around the world
As expected, many well-known names appear in the top 10 most popular websites worldwide, but also websites from the other end of the world and porn sites. At the top is the search engine giant Google .com, followed by the in-house video portal Youtube .com. The social networks Facebook and Instagram, which are also popular in Germanyland in third and fifth place. Completely unused in the western world, but still in fourth place, is Baidu.com. The search engine is the first port of call for surfing Chinese. With a population of over 1.4 billion people, no wonder. The first surprise comes in sixth place in the form of the online encyclopedia Wikipedia.org. Just three years ago, Wikipedia wasn’t even in the top 10.
In return, porn sites have slipped in the ranking! The most popular are only tenth and 14th. Three years ago it was seventh and ninth, two years ago it was ninth and eleven. The average length of stay on the erotic pages also continues to decrease. From 15 minutes to an average of eleven minutes, now to just under ten.
Due to Corona, zoom.us is now in 12th place.
Incidentally, with Amazon .com, the first shopping site only lands on 13th place in the list. Streaming service Netflix in 16th place.
