50 Most Popular Websites on the US – September 2012


comScore recently updated its Media Metrix rankings, which list the 50 most popular (i.e., most visited) websites in the United States. The current edition is the September 2012 one.

As one could guess the top 5 are: Google, Microsoft, Yahoo!, Facebook and AOL. Below you’ll find a compilation of the list that appeared on the Cnet blog:


Curious points in my opinion:

  • Technorati in the 28th position? Are they still around…?
  • Federated Media, 17th, doesn’t own any online properties as far as know. They are an advertising network, so not really sure how the computations are being made.
  • MySpace?
  • Pinterest broke in the top 50 for the first time.

    Recently people say that, selling on Pinterest is better on Facebook and if Pinterest is in the top 50 I think that’s great. Pinterest is one of my favorite social media sites.

    Nice information Daniel,
    Yeah Facebook is #2 in US and the global rank is #1.
    Facebook is globally #1 but can’t beat Google in US.

    Hi Daniel,

    Great information.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Yeah I agree with Raplus. Facebook is in #2 in Alexa rank. Why here it’s in #4 ? Maybe there are some differences about computing method ??

  • Raplus

    Facebook is in the number 4. But according to Alexa rank Facebook is the 2nd post popular site in US.

    Technorati have their main site, but as far as I know all this traffic is through there advertising network. Its the same for Federated Media. Federated Media own only a few site, but this counts all the sites within their ad network.

    Im really surprised people still visit Myspace, but with the new launch coming up im sure they are going to rise a little higher yet. (even though they have a terrible brand).

    So that’s a 186,607,000 visitors a month for google sites right?

    Thanks for sharing Daniel, I thought people in US visit Facebook more than Microsoft site and Yahoo site.

    Wow. First of all thanks for keeping us updated with new information. Yes, it is really interesting to see the Technorati with low numbers. However, I believe things are not getting change and people are moving ahead from these networks.
