What are the criteria used to determine the “bigness” of these sites? Neither Yahoo nor Google are mentioned, even though they would trounce Amazon and eBay in pageviews and visits. And don’t get me started on the US/anglophone-centricness of the list.

Google is #1 for sure. It’s pretty odd. Women browse more these days on those sites. I wonder where men go ( except lucky number one, porn ) ?

Facebook has more impressions than Google. I am pretty sure about that.

Miggs

I doubt it. People still use the internet mainly for getting informed. There are way over 2 billion people using the internet. Not all of them have a Facebook account. I also bet a high percentage of Facebookers use Google more.

Now say that Yahoo is currently the best (both statistically and financially) search engine/web portal on the net.
Maybe FB has more impressions than Google (I seriously doubt it), but only in the US.
For most (that includes me), Google is my dictionary, calculator, search engine and pretty much everything. Now I’m just waiting for a less-than-huge-memory-hog Google Chrome.

I have asked Dona, who designed the infographic, to respond to your questions. She will get back to you shortly :-)

This is the WORST infographic I have ever seen. It says it lists the top 6—where is #1 and why do we have #9 and the like?

Aibek

If you ask someone to name top 10 popular websites they all will mention sites above. That’s where the title came from. Those are the biggest consumer oriented sites.

Here is what Dona has said about the infographic and about some of the comments some of you raised :

Regarding Google/Yahoo, etc, I didn’t consider them websites as much as search engines/portals.

Regarding US centric, unless otherwise requested, I always produce my IGs for a US audience and focus on US numbers. 

I included quite a lot of data for each website, which provided enough eye candy and info to get an idea of some of the biggest websites compared. 

For this topic, there is so much data out there that I was only able to get a tip of the iceberg while still including all of the sites requested.

It’s only now I see that this stats are from US only. They worth nothing. That’s why Amazon got in top ten. I’d really love you to stop tell us only about Americans. Most of the time it has no relevance. I hope I don’t offend anyone but I think US has the dumbest¬†masses comparing to other civilized nations.¬†
Same happens with Mac OS: if Americans use it, then it always scores high in statistics.

Saptashwa

True. Though after setting up a Hackintosh, I see the reason why Apple Mac OS X gets more ratings than Windows. It’s much smoother, much better. It’s the only OS I’d love to pay for. Anyway, Linux doesn’t fare badly as well.

So you don’t want to offend anyone yet you make the blanket statement that the population of one of the current world powers is stupider than every other “civilized nation”? Asking for more coverage of areas outside of North America is fine and should be encouraged, but your idea that people from your country are smarter than people from the United States is irrelevant to this article and brings to mind a Nazi mentality. If you think that U.S. culture is stupid, that is a different matter altogether and you should make that clear the next time you wish to say that. If you honestly believe that people living in the United States are stupider than people living elsewhere, you should spend some time educating yourself so that you will not have to rely on stereotypes and can look at people for what they are without making judgements based on shallow things.

Protip: making broad prejudicial statements towards any group makes you look like an asshole

I second Miggs. I’ve never seen teenagers so out of reality like in the US. This stats are worth nothing.

Saptashwa

You should seriously consider your readers who are outside US. US isn’t the world.

Is it just me, or is that data skewed towards people aged 35-54 with “some college”?
