Most Visited Sites in Mauritius

Unsurprisingly Facebook is numero uno. Google, Google.mu and YouTube are next. Blogger.com (Yes!!!!) is at no. 9 two spots lower than Wikipedia but one spot higher than Google.fr. Orange.mu is at 11 while L'express is at 13 and Rapidshare is in between. Twitter is at 16, BBC at 25, Gov.mu at 32 and MCB at 33. Le Matinal is at 39, Defimedia at 46 and Le Mauricien at 54. Amazon.com is 59th and Flickr is 60th. LinkedIn at 62 is two spots higher than the Mauritius Turf Club. SBMonline is at 74, Manu FC is at 78 while MBC is at 79. Finally Apple Inc is at 92.

Given that Mauritians visit blogs more than they visit any newspaper's site shouldn't the Prime Minister invite bloggers to his press conferences?

You can browse the full list on Alexa's site.

It might be true that loads of Mauritians actually visit blogs but unfortunately, the positioning of blogger.com does not necessarily mean that these people are accessing Mauritian blogs. Many download and reviews sites are actually hosted on these google servers.

As a blogger for more than 3yrs, I am for giving more importance to blogs. Perhaps you might be interested to meet other blogger friends in our next bloggers' meeting (date not fixed yet).

Cheers,
YA

Too big to fail? :-)
Even the venerable Le Monde teetered on the edge of bankruptcy and had to be rescued by a triumvirate.

Another way of seeing this ranking - from the brief summaries accompanying the URL's:

Youporn - 31
Pornhub - 37
LiveJasmin - 50
xvideos.com - 51
spankwire - 68
tube8 - 76
katzporn - 88
xnxx galleries - 97

8 sites out of the top 100 are NSFW... So, what may we deduct from that?

@akagugo: That the government's site is almost as popular as Youporn?

L'express ena beaucoup photos lor so site. Donc si 500 personnes guette 50 photos par jour c'est 750,000 page visitees par mois (donc a peu pres 25% de son traffic).
Qualite de ses articles assez faible et en plus tres partisan (quand c'est pas carrement des mensonges). Plus la censure des commentaires et leur fameux NDLR...
