New York Internet marketing expert says that Facebook was the most searched for and most visited site of last year.
Online PR News – 10-January-2011 – New York, New York – Peter Crisafi, Vice President of dzine it, Inc., a leading New York website development and Internet marketing firm with clients from across the country, says that a recent report shows that social networking giant, Facebook, became the most searched for and most visited website of 2010 and suggests that businesses play close attention to this fact in 2011.
“First Time magazine named Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg ‘Person of the Year,’ and now, Zuckerberg's website has apparently become the online equivalent according to a report from Experian Hitwise,” says Crisafi. “Experian, a leading global information services company that provides data and analytical tools to clients in more than 65 countries, made the announcement in a recent news release.”
According to Crisafi, this is the second year that the social networking website has been the top search term overall, accounting for 2.11 percent of all searches. In addition, Crisafi says that the study found that four variations of the term 'Facebook' were among the top 10 search terms of 2011 and accounted for 3.48 percent of searches overall.
“For the first time in its history, Facebook was the top-visited website in 2010, accounting for 8.93 percent of all U.S. visits between January and November, 2010,” says Crisafi. “Google was the second most visited website, with 7.19 percent of visits, followed by Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo!, and YouTube, respectively.”
Crisafi says that this is great news for Facebook, particularly because there is an expectation that everyone would know the correct url address by now.
“One can infer that there is still a strong interest in Facebook among those that have never used the site,” Crisafi. “Whether that is the case or folks are just lazy, the bottom line is that Facebook’s growing popularity is something that businesses should pay close attention to.”
Crisafi says that businesses that are not taking advantage of all that Facebook has to offer, should do so right away.
