Facebook Beats Google To Become #1 Most Visited Site in December

According to the rankings listed on Complete.com, Facebook had more visits in December than any other website on the Internet – including Google!

Here’s the “Visits” graph that is showing currently at Compete.com:

What started out as a project in a college dorm room, has blossomed into the a dominant online empire.  Facebook is now the #1 most visited site on the Internet, beating out Yahoo, YouTube, and yes… even Google!

If you look at the Alexa rankings, you will see Facebook sitting at #2, and Google at the #1 position.  I’m assuming here that Alexa is looking at unique visitors and Compete is looking at total visits.  I know that most people visit Facebook continually throughout the day.

But that “repeat” visitor element is a huge factor for Facebook, and especially for generating ad revenue.  It ultimately means that Facebook is a place that people love to visit, and love even more to come back to see what they’ve missed!
