Each day millions upon millions of visitors land on websites. From families checking their email and school children doing research for homework to coroporate businesses using the Web for business, usage of the Internet is wide and varied.
But what were the most popular websites of 2010?
Thanks to the great people at Site Pro News, we have the top 10 sites.
Google is clearly the worlds #1 search engine. But did you know that it’s actually far more? You have Gmail, arguably the best online email service and Google Docs, a full functioning online office suite. Then you have Adsense and Adwords, Google Maps, Google Earth… the list goes on. Google have a service for almost every need, and they are VERY good at creating quality products.
Facebook is so popular that even schools have started using it. It is available online, on mobile phones, and on ipads. It simply IS the definition of social networking.
The best online video service, by far. It’s scary to think that YouTube started out in a garage.
Site Pro News list Yahoo at #4, which is a bit confusing, but I guess people do still use it. Their email service is no longer recommended by most, but the search engine is still very good. Yahoo do however have one of the best fantasy sports systems available.
Another search engine… a little surprising that this lands at #5 to be honest.
The source of all things acurate… That saying goes back a few years and as i’m sure you are all aware, it’s 100% untrue. Sure, most content is accurate, and it IS the best source of information, but as a system where content is created by users like you and I, it’s never going to truly factual.
Blogger used to be far better, so I’m a little confused as to why it lands on here, but, it just goes to show that some things can still surprise us.
Baidu? never heard of it, have you? Baidu is a chinese search engine, that’s all I know.
Yet another search engine. MSN is of course most popular for it’s instant messagin service, but as a search engine it’s clawing it’s way in with the big guys like Google and Yahoo.
Site Pro News list Yahoo Japan at #10, and the only site to have a true double entry.

Shocks and surprises? There were a few, but all-in-all, only a few of them really surprised me.
