The analytics company Alexa has revealed the top 50 websites that Australians visit the most. This handy chart breaks down the list into colour-coded categories. (As you'd probably expect, social media, search engines and porn all feature.)

Alexa's website rankings outlines the sites Australians are visiting the most on a daily basis. Here's the top ten:

  1. Search the web from Google Australia's homepage.
  2. User-submitted videos with rating, comments, and contests.
  3. Enables users to search the world's information, including webpages, images, and videos. Offers unique features and search technology
  4. A social utility that connects people, to keep up with friends, upload photos, share links and videos
  5. User-generated news links. Votes promote stories to the front page.
  6. A free encyclopedia built collaboratively using wiki software. (Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License).
  7. Auction sales with a focus on Australian buyers and sellers. Includes policies, search by product type, and links into the international site for additional listings.
  8. live: Search engine from Microsoft
  9. yahoo: A major internet portal and service provider offering search results, customizable content, chatrooms, free e-mail, clubs, and pager.
  10. diply: Entertainment website.

And here's the full list in an easy-to-digest chart (click to enlarge):

As you can see, social media takes up the lion's share of Australia's online traffic, accounting for ten sites in the top 50. Interestingly, the entertainment website Diply managed to edge its way into the Top 10, beating out such online staples as Twitter, Netflix, Instagram and Gumtree. Pirate streaming site is the 39th most visited site by Aussies. Only two porn sites made it into the top 50 - Porn Hub (at #23) and (at #50).

    23 ;)

    I don't know where those site descriptions cam from, but is not a "Search engine from Microsoft".

    the chart has westpac at #50 yet the alexa website has xvideos

    What is going on with the weird layout on the chart?

      It is horrible. I would guess it is an automated 'infographic tool'
      At least I hope nobody deliberately set out and thought that was a great way to represent data

    "Only two porn sites made it into the top 50 - Porn Hub (at #23) and (at #50)."

    xVideos not even in top 50
    If Livejasmin isn't porn i'm not sure what is. Not to mention this is high ranking due to the ads on porn sites comes from twitter and is accessed simply by browsing
    office in top 50...what is office? If you are including office365 traffic in the results of course it's going to be up there
    Same applies for updates are always hitting microsoft servers

    Also what is with the formatting on the graph? It's retarded and doesn't show anything besides a stupid way to list 50 websites.

    surprised to see diply in top 10, that site is cancer. one page per point articles, click bait like its nobody's business. good to see people vote with their attendance, or just dont give a shit about website design and content.
