The emergence and democratization of new technologies allowed the evolution of the place it occupies Internet in our daily lives, which is becoming more and more important over the years. Having become an almost indispensable tool for many of us, both on a personal and professional level, almost 92% of French households are now equipped with an Internet connection. But which ones Website (p which are the most visited ? Hostinger answered this question by recently sharing a report where we see which website is the most visited every country in the world.
the most visited site in each country
The Internet is now an integral part of our lives, as evidenced by the statistics shared by Médiamétrie, that a French person between the ages of 15 and 64 spent an average of 2 hours 26 minutes a day online last year. The youngest age group, 15-24, is unexpectedly at the top of the list, with almost 4 hours of daily use.
Therefore, it is natural to wonder which sites the French visit most often. Hostinger, a company that specializes in hosting websitesidentified and mapped the most visited website in each country of the world, as well as the main trends in each region.
To do this, Hostinger has removed search engines from its results to reduce “intermediary visits”. This is why Google is not included in this list despite being the most popular website in the world. The company also removed Facebook and YouTubeas they would otherwise dominate the results, given that the three sites in question are the most visited in the world, significantly overshadowing the usage of almost all other sites.
On the podium of the most visited sites in the worldwe find wikipedia, leading as the most visited site in 43 countries, followed by Twitter, and finally by Amazon. On the fourth position we find the site Quora, specializes in sports news in the Arab world, and in the fifth and last position there is Delphi, a major news site in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania that provides news information.
The report also provides some details on Europe, highlighting in particular the dominant position of Wikipedia, which tops the list in 15 of the continent’s 38 countries, including France. The online encyclopedia would increase its potential readership, in particular, thanks to the addition of portals and translations into foreign languages.
We also learn that local media sites are very popular in Europe. This is especially true in the Balkans, for example, where Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Croatia have media and news sites with the local domain extension as the most visited site in their country. In the UK, the BBC takes the top spot, and it turns out that the latter is also the most visited news site in more than a dozen other countries.
