Facebook Most Visited Website Of The Year, Tops Google
At the top of the “Most visited websites”, Facebook has taken first place for 2010, finally beating Google for the coveted spot that many thought would go to the search engine.
Hitwise reported that the social networking website accounted for almost 9 percent of all website visits in the U.S between January and November of 2010.
Google came in second at just over 7 percent along with Yahoo! Mail which has around 3.5 percent. The public has seen Facebook slowly moving up the list of most visited websites, finally taking its place at the top because of the millions of people who use it on a daily basis.

For the year 2010 several of the most popular search phrases were “Facebook” along with “YouTube”. In 2009 the most popular search term was also “Facebook”, indicating just how popular the social networking website has become in the last couple years with people across the globe, including the millions of people in the U.S who log on every day to post status updates and send messages.*Sponsored Links*
