Facebook First to Reach 1 Trillion Page Views

Social networking giant Facebook is the first to cross one trillion page views milestone, according to new data released by Google.

Google’s Doubleclick advertising division has released a list of 1,000 most visited websites in the world, with Facebook getting the top spot.

According to the data, Facebook had 870 million unique visitors in the month of June and 1 trillion page views. Other websites were in no way close to the platform, which has more than 750 million users.

There are some pages on Facebook which can be accessed by non-users as well, which explains why the number of unique visitors is more than the actual number of users.

Google’s YouTube came in second after Facebook with 790 million unique visitors and 100 billion page views, a lot less than Facebook’s.

YouTube was followed by Yahoo with 590 million unique visitors and 78 billion page views. Microsoft’s Live platform and Wikipedia came in 4th and 5th position with 540 million and 460 million page views respectively. The full list can be accessed here.

“Keep in mind that the list excludes adult sites, ad networks, domains that don't have publicly visible content or don't load properly, and certain Google sites,” Google explained.
