In Web Matters by DebLeave a Comment

Considering there are over 1.1 billion websites on the internet it is fascinating to find out that the vast majority of traffic goes to only a very few. So who are the top 10? Take a look:

  1. Google
  2. You Tube (owned by Google)’
  3. Facebook
  4. Amazon
  5. Yahoo
  6. Wikipedia
  7. Reddit
  8. EBay
  9. Twitter
  10. Netflix

No real surprises there.

The most interesting statistic about this info graphic put together by the folks over at Visual Capitalist, is that the icons shaded in “blue” are all Social Media companies. With Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Tumbler and Imgur taking 7 of the top 20 positions of the most visited websites on the planet. So what is that telling you ?

If you aren’t implementing social media into your website then you are missing out. The ability to connect to a few million people via social media feeds will be an integral part of your online business. Social media lists increase the opportunity of your website to become visible and seen in a busy marketplace all vying for your client’s attention. Visibility and awareness is crucial.

Social media connectivity also provides another important element to your website. They act as a “funnel” to drive traffic back to your website and provide an opportunity to take action by contacting you or purchasing a product.  Social Media is a way of feeding fresh content to engage your audience and create a personal connection.

So take a closer look at your Social Media strategies and connections. It is an inexpensive way of tapping into existing lists of potential clients and customers.
