Illustration for article titled Facebook Takes Most Visited Website of the Year Title From Google

According to data collected by information gathering service Hitwise, Facebook was this year's most visited website. Of course, that is only if you count each Google property separately:

The combination of Google properties accounted for 9.85 percent of all U.S. visits. Facebook properties accounted for 8.93 percent, and Yahoo! properties accounted for 8.12 percent. The top 10 Websites accounted for 33 percent of all U.S. visits between January and November 2010, an increase of 12 percent versus 2009.


Still, not too shabby for Facebook. [Hitwise via TechCrunch]
