Google published some very interesting stats in The 1000 most-visited sites on the web report for DoubleClick Ad Planner, its ad management service. Facebook.com supposedly managed to hit 1 trillion pageviews in the month of June, standing at the top of the list a whole order of magnitude higher than the next most visited site – YouTube.com, and its 100 billion pageviews.
The top-five is rounded off with Yahoo.com, Live.com, and Wikipedia.org. Facebook’s showing in June was certainly remarkable, with 870 million unique visitors creating all those pageviews – a figure that is larger than the total number of registered users at last official count (750 million), so unless the site’s membership has also grown since, that makes up for about 120 million non-registered visitors arriving via advertisements, search engines.
