Top Websites in India

I was just surfing through internet and found alexa.com, it is one of the most popular website for finding out traffic of a site on Internet. It is being used as one of the industry wide benchmark for checking the popularity of the site . Infact one can very easily create his account on Alexa and check out the traffic ranking of it.

I was just curious to know that how many google websites are there in top 20 of India . The list goes as such .. ( Courtesy Alexa)

  1. google.co.in

    No surprises . Google , nice start (1/1)
  2. google.com

    Google wins it again 2/2
  3. yahoo.com

    Legacy of yahoo , which started the email revolution in India , quite deserving but more tech savvy people have moved on ...

  4. facebook.com

    This was a surprise (pleasant one ), I thought orkut is more popular in India .. online games like Farmville and mafia wars has improved its visibility ..
  5. blogger.com

    Another google website and host for our blogs .. 3/5
  6. youtube.com

    hmm , right there on the top , number one streaming videos website, even when webspeed is not great here . The content is just too good . (4/6) for google
  7. orkut.co.in

  8. rediff.com

    surprise surprise , an Indian website in Indian top 20 ,
  9. wikipedia.org

    I am a big fan of Wiki , they are doing a great social service .. Very deserving .
  10. orkut.com

    Orkut.in and Orkut.com combined might overtake facebook , what do you think .. (6/10) . wow google is killing the competition here
  11. twitter.com

    Social Networking redefined , I see great future for this website and should enter top 10 very soon .
  12. indiatimes.com

    Another desi website , good portal
  13. linkedin.com

    Recession might have improved the popularity of this website in India . Another social networking website just behind facebook , orkut and twitter .
  14. live.com

    Another surprise , Personally I found this website really good but never seen anyone surfing it though .
  15. wordpress.com

    Blogging is becoming a rage in Indians , second blogging webpage in top 20.
  16. cricinfo.com

    It has to be there , by far the best Cricket webpage , Automated page refresh after every 20 second might again be making it easier for it.
  17. ie100.net

  18. msn.com

    Still popular , specially people love hotmail and the new page on Indian news is very popular amongst youth.
  19. microsoft.com

    Windows default homepages might be helping it to enter top 20 otherwise I dont see any daily need for anyone to visit this portal.
  20. in.com

    Indian website which has made waves in last year , another surprise for me .

Sites to look out for :

I believe two the website which can enter the top 20 in next 4-5 years : -

1. moneycontrol.com with excellent research on Equity markets .

2. valueresearchonline.com : - One of the best websites I have ever seen on Mutual Funds

Glad to see facebook listed above orkut... But I really wish wiki gets a better rank. I turn to it for almost every bit of knowledge I gather from the web.Would like to see it move up the ranks :)

Yeah , even I felt good seeing facebook on top of orkut , But if we cobine both orkut.co.iin and orkut.com , it might be more than facebook :)
