The Laboratory for Web Algorithmics of the Università degli studi di Milano together with the Data and Web Science Group of the University of Mannheim have put together the first entirely open ranking of more than 100 million sites of the Web.
The number one site is YouTube, the second Wikipedia, and the third Twitter http://wwwranking.webdatacommons.org/
I checked my website which doesn’t have a ranking in Alexa and found my site ranks higher than 73 million sites–with less than 27 million sites ranking higher than mine!
Interesting (to me anyway) #1 thru #4, sure, who hasn’t heard of them? But at #5 is wordpress.org. Um, sorry, never heard of it? (And no, I don’t require someone to jump in here and explain it to me. I’m just observing…)
When I want to engage my brain, I come here. When I want some dumb laughs, I frequent peopleofwalmart.com. They came in at 4275. I am happy, but surprised, that the SD ranks higher. Faith in humanity made a slight uptick today…
The other thing is, does any single porn site really dominate? There are many porn sites. I wouldn’t even want to guess how many. And while porn in general is clearly high on the list of most hit categories, those hits are diffused over many, many different sites. So I’m not surprised no single porn site is particularly high.
