TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Google is the most visited website in the world, scoring 60 billion visitors a month, according to the market research group Visual Capitalist.

The U.S.-based search engine is followed by its affiliate, YouTube, and by Facebook, which receives just under 20 billion visits a month.

At No. 4 stands the first of 15 Chinese sites in the global top 100, search engine Baidu, while Wikipedia rates No. 5, just ahead of Twitter.

All of the sites in the top 100 receive at least 350 million visits per month, the Liberty Times reported.

Most Chinese companies remain focused on the domestic market behind the country's firewall, Visual Capitalist noted. One exception is Tencent, which has invested in Snapchat and Spotify.

The top performers on the llst are search engines and video streaming sites, the latter type owing its success to increasingly powerful phones.
