The Most Visited Sites In The World

There are literally billions of humans that use the internet, surfing amongst millions of sites that are all begging for their attention. So, naturally, where those surfers land up can be difficult to predict. Or is it?

It turns out that although there is an inconceivable amount of content on the internet, it isn’t as difficult as might be imagined to see where most users go. After all, there are only so many browsers, so many search engines, and so many free entertainment hubs. At least, there are only so many of these sites that are worth the time.

Here is a look at the most visited sites on the internet, most of which probably won’t be much of a surprise. Still, it pays to know where the most traffic in the world is actually landing up.

Google Search

Yes, you probably already guessed this, but the Google Search site is by far the most visited in the world. It only makes sense, given that the site is the default homepage for millions of users, including for countless Android smartphones around the world.

Even still, the fact that Google sees over 1.5 billion views over the course of a single month, in the United States alone, is truly mind boggling, and even a little difficult to comprehend.


Next up is, of course, YouTube. With a literal endless amount of entertainment, most of which is free, created by millions of professionals around the world, it doesn’t get much more appealing than this. Yes, the site is undergoing almost endless controversy for one reason or another, but just taking a quick glance at the insane variety of what is available on the site more than justifies the numbers. YouTube receives just over a billion visitors on a monthly basis, in the United States, and that number is only climbing.

Next up is Tmall, a China based site that acts as an astonishingly popular online retail outlet. Visitors in the Greater China area are able to visit the site and quickly and efficiently purchase goods direct from companies, normally at exceptionally good prices. As of February, the site was estimated to have around 500 million registered users.


Another that won’t come as a surprise to anyone, number 4 on the list is Facebook. The popularity of Facebook is very much up for debate, depending on who you ask. Many will say that it is almost impossible to get a real idea of just how many accounts the social media site actually, given the number of dead or fake accounts.

Either way, one thing that can’t be faked is the number of visitors that head to Facebook on a monthly basis. In the United States, roughly half a billion visit Facebook on a monthly basis. It is also estimated that there are around 2.2 billion active Facebook users. A number that is, incredibly, still growing at a fairly steady rate.
