The Most Popular Websites

Here’s a fascinating link for anyone interested in tracking the ongoing rank of the most popular websites on the Internet.  Many of these ranks are probably to be expected, but I was certainly surprised by some of the other positions.  The ranks are maintained by Alexa, a web traffic tracking subsidiary of Amazon.  You can read more about it here.  All rankings are based on US popularity.  You can look at the worldwide statistics here.  It’s rather amazing to see how popular some of the social networks have become.
