Rank Site Monthly Visits
Some people might see this as just a list. But we see this as Digital Marketing opportunity. From an advertising standpoint these websites hold a lot of power.
Google leads the ranks with over 200 million visitors a month adding more and more merit to their Google Pay Per Click advertising campaigns. For almost all businesses it makes sense to incorporate Google advertising as a part of your digital marketing mix.
Some might be shocked to learn that Youtube is the 2nd most visited site with 211 million monthly visitors. So how can your business use this to its advantage? Simple – Video Advertising. Experts believe that by the end of 2015 video will take up 57% of consumers internet traffic and that by 2018 this will have risen to 79%.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade it shouldn’t be a shock that the popular social media networks Twitter and Facebook rank 3rd and 4th respectively in monthly website visit. If your company isn’t in the social media “game” you are miles behind your competitors and missing out on millions of potential customers.
Even Yelp’s advertising options have validity for several industries including the hotel, restaurant, and hospitality industry considering it is the #11 most monthly visited site at 58 million monthly visits.
