Experian Hitwise recently released their figures for March traffic stats of the leading social networking sites. Facebook of course is still on top by a long shot and Youtube is in second with a surprisingly huge lead over Twitter, Pinterest, and other popular social sites. It has been very exciting watching how fast Pinterest has grown and I would be willing to bet it will overtake Twitter very soon.
Here is the full list of Top 10 Social Networking Sites by Visits:
Two sites that really stuck out on this list were Yahoo Answers and Tagged. I had no idea Yahoo Answers still got such a high amount of traffic, it’s time to get back on there and start dropping some backlinks to my sites. You have to be Level 2 and the links are no follow so they don’t provide much of a SEO boost, but they can still be great for bringing in free, targeted traffic to your site.
The next site I wanted to discuss is Tagged. I had never even heard of this site until I saw this list. A quick check on Wikipedia reveals that it is a social media site that has been around since 2004 and focused on meeting new people and playing games. One thing that caught my eye was this line – “In May 2010, ComScore reported that Tagged entered the top 10 U.S. Online Display Ad Publishers for the first time.” Could Tagged.com be a great source for cheap PPC ads? I’m going to have to look into this more..Anybody have experience using Tagged?
