While we think of quite a few websites as 'popular,' an actual look at the internet's favorite sites reveals just how few really come close to making the cut, and by just how wide of a margin the web's top dogs really rule the roost.

It’s easy to think that some websites and services are huge in terms of visits, but when compared with the most popular, most pale in comparison. The following chart by Statista shows the websites that had the most visits in February, so the data is still pretty fresh.



It shouldn’t be any surprise that Google is the most visited website by far, but the next closest (YouTube – also owned by Google) has less than half the visits.

Wikipedia comes in 5th with almost 5 billion, while Yahoo is still popular enough to come in right after with almost 4 billion. Twitter follows right behind at 3.6 billion.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
