Successful Websites Earning Money Online

Following from the success of my ‘Top 50 Earning Blogs!!!‘, today I wanted to look at the most popular websites currently online.

The following list of 50 website are the most visited websites on the planet. I’m sure that you will recognise many of these sites, but you will also see some that you are not familiar with.

The value of these sites is calculated based on the web traffic that they recieve. In essence this is the value of the domain name itself. It does not reflect the true worth of the company as a whole, taking into account all revenue streams.

It took me quite a while to put this list together, but I learnt a lot from doing it and found this list to be very interesting! Within a simple list  of 50 websites, you can see what interests the global population!

There is no suprise that search engines dominate the list, with Google having 12 out of 50 of the top sites!

Social networking sites and comunity based sites like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. also feature highly.

Though the majority of the top 50 websites are English language based, an increasing number of forign language sites are ranking highly. China  inparticular has 10 of the top 50 sites, reflecting their emerging presence on the world stage.

I think, to sumerize, a lot of inspiration can be taken from this list! Sites that plan to make the top 50 list in the future will be places that  people can comunicate together and share information. More forign language sites will emerge (I am thinking Chinese & Indian) as increasing amounts of  their population gain internet access.

This list is only an estimate of the true value of these websites! If you were to value them as fully formed companies, taking into account all revenue streams, then their value would greatly increase. SItes like Amazon and eBay for example, would be valued much higher when factoring in their huge  profits from the sales that it makes.

Disclaimer:- The websites featured in this top 50 valued websites list are only estimates and are not 100% accurate! This is just an indication of how well they are  doing regarding making money from their website. All of the ‘Daily Ad Revenue’ & ‘Value’ statistics were calculated using the free tool ‘SiteWorthChecher‘  which can be used to estimate the worth of a website.

What have you learned from this list? Do you think I have missed any sites out? Please leave your opinions below in the comments section.
