Top 50 Most Visited Websites in Africa

Posted on

It will be very interesting to know the top 50 Most visited websites in Africa and there’s one websites that knows how to rank websites based on their popularity worldwide, therefore in compiling this list, we had to turn to Alexa which is a leading provider of free, global web metrics worldwide. With Alexa, you can discover the most successful sites on the web by keyword, category, or country. You can also use their analytics for competitive analysis, benchmarking, market research, or business development. Though not 100% accurate, Alexa rankings will give you a fair idea of how much traffic a website is getting, it’s used to measure how popular a website is and is based on the number of internet users who have the Alexa toolbar installed. In actual sense, I’m inclined to believe that these websites are actually getting far more than the level of traffic one would presume they are getting based on Alexa statistics alone when compared with their counterparts from Asia, Europe or North America as most Africans do not have the Alexa toolbar installed
