Facebook takes top spot with over a third of internet visits

Latest Google data shows social networking domination.

Facebook is the most visited site on the internet according to Google's latest data.

The site logged 570 billion page views in April, reaching 35.2 percent of the total internet population. The next most popular site was Yahoo, with 490 billion page views and 31.8 percent of the market.

While Google's data doesn't include its own sites the full list does provide some fascinating insights into web search behavior.

Microsoft's Live site scooped third place but the open source Wikipedia claimed fourth, with one out of every five internet users visiting the crowd-sourced encyclopedia. The organisations latest upsets do not seem to have hurt the site's credibility.

Chinese search giant Baidu took eight place, reflecting its dominant position in its home market, with the official government news site of China, sina.com.cn, taking eleventh place.

Mozilla came in 10th with 140 million page views while Apple languished in 27th place with barely half that number of visitors.
