Alexa Internet, Inc., California-based company wholly owned by Amazon.com has recently released a rating of the most popular web-sites worldwide. The assessment was based on daily average visits and views within the last three months. Around 30 million Internet resources were analyzed for the research.
Here is the list of the top 15 sites on the web:
Not surprising that the most visited web-resource is Google. Its Indian version takes the seventh place while Japanese the eleventh. Chinese search service Baidu is the fourth on the list and the most famous free online encyclopedia in the world ranks No. 5.
At the same time Alexa has prepared rankings by countries and categories. The list of top UAE web-sites a bit differs from the international one. Here you are:
UAE version of Google ranks No. 1, Youtube and Facebook are approximately as popular in UAE as in the rest of the world. As you can see, some top-world web-sites and those from UAE coincide, e.g. Yahoo, Wikipedia, Live, Twitter and Instagram. However in the list are also some typical UAE resources like Souq, Dubizzle and Onclickads. Souq Dubai is the most important e-commerce site in UAE, while Dubizzle.com aims at free ad posting.
