Facebook Beat Out Google in 2010

o facebook passes google with web traffic becoming number 1 most popular website in the united states Facebook Beat Out Google in 2010

News flash Google, you’re no longer the top dog. You’ve been replaced, by a larger, more visited website, in 2010. There is hope for you in 2011, but not much. Who are you now falling second place to? Of course. None other than Facebook!¬†Hitwise released two sets of data last week to cover 2010: the top 10 most-searched terms, and the top 10 most-visited websites. Shock or no schock, Facebook has topped both charts. On the most visited chart, it leads by a fair margin, nearly 9%, of all Internet clicks in the United States in 2010. That’s insane! Google falls behind with only 7.2% of visited hits in the U.S. Not only may it come as a surprise to many that Facebook is visited more often than Google, but when you compare the 2010 numbers to the 2009 numbers, the difference there is even more shocking. In 2009, Facebook held only 4.3% of the Internet’s overall visits while Google stood at 6.7%. So from one year to the next, Google only climbed half a percent while Facebook more than doubled.
