If you had to guess what was the most popular Website in your country, most of you probably would have guessed Google and some of you might have thought of Facebook first. Depending on where you live, the chances are you'd be right.
A closer look shows that Google is really the overall global winner. "The power of Google on the Internet becomes starkly evident if we also look at the second most visited website in every country. Among the 50 countries that have Facebook listed as the most visited visited website, 36 of them have Google as the second most visited, and the remaining 14 countries list YouTube (currently owned by Google)."
As for the rest of the world, Yahoo has stayed number one in Japan and Taiwan. In Russia, the Yandex search engine is on top.
From a global perspective, "Google is the most visited website account for half of the entire Internet population, with over one billion people." Baidu, thanks to China and South Korea's large Internet population, is second while Facebook comes in third.
