Jump to navigation Jump to search
Google is the most visited website on the internet, as per both Alexa and SimilarWeb rankings

This is a list of the most popular websites worldwide according to the first 50 websites listed in the global "Top Sites" lists published by Alexa Internet, as of January 17, 2019, and SimilarWeb, as of December 2018, along with its rating on the corresponding service.

Of these top websites listed, nearly a third are owned by Google and ignoring the international Google websites, about a third are principally based outside of the United States.

Ranking measures

Alexa ranks websites based on a combined measure of page views and unique site users, and creates a list of most popular websites based on this ranking time-averaged over three-month periods. Only the site's highest-level domain is recorded, aggregating any subdomains.[1]

SimilarWeb ranks websites based on a panel of millions of Internet users, International/U.S. internet service providers, direct measurement of web traffic from data from thousands of websites and web crawlers scanning public websites.[2]

Changes in ranking are since December 28, 2016.
