Google No Longer Most Visited Site On The Web

computerFor as long as many us can remember, Google has been the most visited site on the web.  You may recall, that during Christmas & New Years Day, Facebook was the most visited site for the day, but Google quickly took that spot back.

However, HitWise said during March 7 and March 13 Facebook surpassed Google as the most visited site in the US, and the trend looks like it will continue.  For the past year, Facebook’s popularity has continued to grow, while Google’s ranking has remained on a stable path. 

Heather Dougherty of HitWise explained, “The market share of visits to Facebook.com increased 185% last week as compared to the same week in 2009, while visits to Google.com increased 9% during the same time frame.”

“Together Facebook.com and Google.com accounted for 14% of all US Internet visits last week,” Dougherty added. 

This is quite an accomplishment for the social network, since Google has dominated the web for years.  Expect to see Facebook& Google start dueling for the top spot.  But if Facebook continues it’s trend that its been on for the past year, Google could soon be left in the dust.
