Visualizing The 100 Websites That Rule The Internet

Tyler Durden's picture

There are over 1.1 billion websites on the internet, but the vast majority of all traffic actually goes to a very select list of them. As Visual Capitalist's Jeff Desjardins notes,, for example, has an astounding 28 billion visits per month. The next closest is also a Google-owned property,, which brings in 20.5 billion visits.

Today’s infographic comes to us from Vodien, and it lists the 100 highest ranking websites in the U.S. by traffic, according to website analytics company Alexa.

The information is grouped by company – for example, you can see that Google controls four sites in the Top 100 (Google, Youtube, Blogger, and Google User Content), while Verizon owns the Huffington Post and (they will also control Yahoo and Tumblr when that deal closes in Q2). The data is also sorted by industry, so sites in a similar category are grouped in the same color.

The dropoff from #1 to #100 is significant. has 28 billion visits, but a website like (ranked #98) only has 53 million visits a month. That’s a 500x difference!

Meanwhile, a website like gets one million visits per month, and is ranked #33,000 in the United States – a 50x difference from Citi. Further down the trail – there are literally millions of tiny websites that get thousands or just hundreds of visits per month, and some that don’t get any love at all.

The whole distribution is quite fascinating, and it is clear that the spoils go overwhelmingly to the very top of the food chain. However, that also means that there is an entire world of millions of websites out there that almost no one (except Google’s crawler) has ever seen.

Google was funded by the CIA and ZH by the Mossad.

That explains the huge GAP between the two. :-)

I bet if you plotted the Top 100 sites in top-down order with their visits you would find an exponential distribution.  Seen everywhere!  More:

ZH just missed the cut at 101.

OK, since the other guy is sleeping or something, I'll pinch hit for him...

I make $7,000 a month on the internet. Ask me how. Click the link below...

And I want to add some substance here: nice list of all the sites which are probably all compromises by the Deep State(s) and are data mining your ass every time to use them...

You forgot to mention how great bitcons are, propose living wage for everyone and send us to the biblicism institute to learn all about it.

I didn't see Drudgereport or ZH. There are fake metrics.

techpriest's picture

My bet is that they are measuring by hits or GET requests, and not filtering by User Agent. For example, I have a crawler that I use to study MSN behavior (which let me discover the "Trump pump and dump" on CNN, where coverage flipped from net positive to net negative the week he was nominated), and in a crawl I might give an MSM site 50,000 page hits.

Part of the curve could be perceived significance, which attracts crawlers.

I didn't see any porn sites either.  Or did I not look hard enough?  Can't be a credible list without porn sites.

Bad Attitude's picture

There were 3 porn sites - the black circles on the lower-left quadrant of the diagram - with rankings of #33, #76, and #99.

Forward (over the cliff)!

PT's picture

Thankyou for having a proper look for me, but while technically wrong, I think my point still stands.  Only 3 sites?  #s 33, 76, and 99?  I rest my case.

City_Of_Champyinz's picture

You need to click on the full size version.  There were 3 porn sites, two of which I have never heard of.

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do...

These 100 and  many more are actually the main control mechanisms and very few people can actaully grasp that simple fact. Including the peope who work at them and own them. It is in fact just another of the many illusions we all live under.

The reason Google places so highly is because every dumbfuck in the world browses through Google. They never type the URL, the go to google and search for it

froze25's picture

That is pretty much true. Use it will mask your searches.

watch your ZH page load all of the other crap that it loads.  Gurgl keeps comin' in there as well.  It is giving all of us an anal-itcz all the time.

No Drudge?  I don't believe this list.

38BWD22's picture



True!  I visit Drudge every day, they post their stats once in a while too.


A Nanny Moose's picture

Does this list account for visits by fake Facebook account owners?

Anglo-Zionists Love U's picture

That's the first thing I started looking for also.  As if CNN, huffpo, fox, and even Breitbart get more hits than Drudge.  I really would be willing to wager a bet that they probably all together don't get as much traffic as Drudge does on any given day.

Breitbart passed Drudge months ago. They talk to each other and BB did a story on it.

Appleseed's picture

breitbart isn't even close to drudge in traffic

Sanity Bear's picture

That is no longer true.

Drudge ~#700 globally ~140 US
Breitbart ~#235 globally ~48th US

J Pancreas's picture

Alexa as a source = fake news.

Mareka's picture

That Drudge was not in the chart looked odd.

Drudge Report = 700 million visits per month, 8.4 Billion per year.

"The Daily Mail had 99 million referrals from Drudge last year, Intermarkets found. had 64 million, The Washington Post 47 million and The New York Times 36 million. The AP's website is a big beneficiary from Drudge, receiving more than 50 percent of its traffic from the site."

Shepwave is 1,000,.000,000.  They are not a hits mill.  Plus there are not enough smart traders in the world to go there. HEHEHEHE

You're wasting your time.  Nobody here is stupid enough to visit your virus-laden pseudo-site.  Now piss off and stop pimping your crap here.

And you can bet almost all of them owned by Jews.

They must control the narrative so their slow kill of the white race can march FORWARD.

With Thomas Perez As DNC Chairthing, Democrats Go Full Anti-White

No Campus (Or Country) for White Men

Meyerson once wrote that “whiteness is a huge problem,” which of course means he believes Whites are a huge problem, just as his fellow Tribe members Noel Ignatiev, Susan Sontag, and a host of others have believed. Well, when Jews say these things, we flesh-and-blood Whites have good reason to worry, since these sentiments have often resulted in rivers of the blood of non-Jews. For example, it was not even a century ago that Bolshevik Jews became a hostile elite in Russia and, not coincidentally, millions upon millions of White Christians perished.

Looking at developments in Russia during and after the Revolution, it seems quite possible that America may experience the same trajectory. In Russia, Slezkine tells us that so many viewed the Jews as non-threatening outsiders, yet during the Red Terror, Christians expressed shock that seemingly pacifistic Jews changed almost overnight: “We were amazed by what we had least expected to encounter among the Jews: cruelty, sadism, and violence had seemed alien to a nation so far removed from physical, warlike activity; those who yesterday did not know how to use a gun are now found among the executioners and cutthroats.”

Our editor Kevin MacDonald has been in the fore in chronicling these massacres, nowhere better than in his review “Stalin’s Willing Executioners,” where he wrote, “If there is any lesson to be learned, it is that Jews not only became an elite in all these areas, they became a hostile elite — hostile to the traditional people and cultures of all three areas they came to dominate.” MacDonald made this case based on the bold theses presented in Yuri Slezkine’s book The Jewish Century. As we will see, Slezkine provides much fodder for the theme that non-Jews should indeed take Jewish hostility seriously.

Diversity Is Strength! It’s Also…Increasingly Unequal Justice for Whites

Your unexpected posting let to yet another jaw-dropping, eye-opening linke:

To all nationalists - Read it and weep.

Mr Weber makes an error in that he said that Lenin wasn't Jewish. Lenin, was in fact, part_Jewish.

They slaughered millions of Ukrainians as well:
Holodomor, which was done totally by Jews. That isn’t really even debated.

waspwench's picture

Following your link I eventually found a site where evidence is presented that Putin is Jewish. Hmmmmm.....

"it was not even a century ago that Bolshevik Jews became a hostile elite in Russia and, not coincidentally, millions upon millions of White Christians were brutally slaughtered without a single shred of human remorse, and the fact that the world is largely ignorant of this fact demonstrates that the global media is in the hands of the perpetrators"

There fixed it for ya, had to borrow or paraphrase from Mr. Solzhenitsyn. 

Top notch post thanks for the links, very educational
