These are the 5 most visited websites in the world in 2022

The emergence and democratization of new technologies have enabled an evolution of the place occupied by internet in our daily lives, which become more and more important over the years. Nearly 92% of French households have now become an almost indispensable resource for many of us, both personally and professionally, and are now equipped with an internet connection. But what are the? website (s who are the most visited ? Hostinger answered this question by sharing a report recently, where we can see which is the most visited website in any country in the world.

the most visited site in every country

The internet is now an integral part of our lives, as evidenced by the statistics shared by Médiamétrie, that a Frenchman aged 15 to 64 was online for an average of 2 hours and 26 minutes a day last year. Unsurprisingly, the youngest age group, 15-24, tops the list, with nearly 4 hours of daily use.

It is therefore natural to wonder which sites the French visit the most. Hostinger, a company specialized in website hostingidentified and mapped the most visited website in each country in the world, as well as key trends in each region.

To do this, Hostinger removed search engines from their results to reduce the “visits of intermediaries”. That’s why Google is not on this list, despite being the most popular website in the world. The company also deleted Facebook and YouTubebecause otherwise they would have dominated the results, as the three sites in question are the most visited sites in the world, far outpacing the usage of almost all other sites.

On the podium of the most visited websites in the worldwe find Wikipedia, who are in the lead as the most visited site for 43 countries, followed by Twitter, and finally by Amazon. On the fourth position we find the site koora, specialized 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 providing news information.

The report also provides some details about Europe, notably highlighting Wikipedia’s predominance, which tops the list in 15 of the continent’s 38 countries, including France. The online encyclopedia is said to have multiplied its potential readership, in particular thanks to the addition of portals and translations into foreign languages.

We also learn that local news media sites are very popular in Europe. This is the case, for example, in the Balkans, where Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Croatia each have a media and news site with the local domain extension as the most visited site in their country. In the United Kingdom, the BBC is at the top, and the latter also appears to be the most visited news site in more than a dozen other countries.
