Each site is owned by someone. And like any property, it can be exchanged, sold, donated and made with it any other actions. And to determine the value of such a virtual thing as a site, you can use specialized resources that analyze the contents of this site according to different parameters. Hence the opportunity to find out the most expensive sites on the network. Where does that come from Specialized services analyze the most significant parameters of the site, the indicators of which affect the cost. On the Internet you can find a huge variety of services to assess the value of the site. But all as one consider the age of the resource, its presence in popular directories, traffic, search engine ranking, social index and other parameters. After all the data are collected, they are substituted into a special formula. And the result of the calculations just gives the cost of the site. So, now the most expensive sites can be called by name.
First place among the most expensive sites on the network is deservedly occupied by the famous search giant Google.And it is not surprising, millions of people daily use the information of this resource, and, the cherished letters are stuffed into the address bar of Internet users from around the world. Google is the most popular site in the whole world.
After the search engine, the site of the popular microblogging service twitter.com is conveniently located in the ranking. The resource to find friends from all over the world was created in 2006 by Jack Dorsey. Today Twitter is perhaps the most visited site in the world. More than 200 million users are registered in it. Half of the visitors are active on the site at least once a month, 50 million use Twitter every day. The advantages of the system allow them to send short text notes. Moreover, posted messages can be viewed even by outside users.
This site is the world's largest social network. Facebook was created in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg and his roommates when they studied at Harvard University. Initially, the resource was named Thefacebook, it was available only to students. Later, registration was opened for other universities in Boston, and then for students at all US universities. Since 2006, any Internet user with e-mail can be registered on Facebook. Now there are over a billion people registered on the social network. The site is estimated at a decent amount - more than a billion dollars. And it is not surprising that the creator of Facebook.com, Mark Zuckerberg, became the youngest billionaire in the world - at the age of 23.
The most popular video hosting on the planet is also worth not small money. Nowadays, not knowing anything about Youtube means not knowing anything at all.
It is interesting, but the sites that are used not in the whole world, but only in a single country, were included in the rating. The most popular search engine in China Baidu.com can bring its creators a good payoff. It turns out that in the Chinese Internet, Baidu.com is loved as much as in Yandex.ru. However, in Chinese the name of the local search engine sounds quite funny. If you translate literally, then "Go to Baidu, find yourself some kind of baida." But the cost is not funny at all - at least 350 million American dollars.
The world-famous universal online encyclopedia that knows the answers to literally all the questions - Wikipedia.org - deserves to be one of the most expensive sites in the world. The main feature of Wikipedia is that its volunteers create. That is, any user can add information to the site. However, from this reliability and accuracy of information sometimes raises many questions.
Another site that is quite popular in China. This is a fast messaging service with a Qq.com address. The Russian-speaking user does not understand it at all, if you enter the resource, it will be overflowed with Chinese characters. Even the all-knowing Google cannot adequately translate into Russian all the information that is presented on the service. However, the cost of the similarity of the Chinese "ICQ" is close to 200 million dollars.
And again, the Chinese website is leading the way. The most popular online store in the east is Taobao.com, which is slowly but surely occupying a Russian buyer.
In the list of the most expensive sites, another social network conveniently settled. It is called Linkedin.com. True, this name will say little to the Russian Internet user. But according to open data, this social network is specially created to search and establish exclusively business contacts.And the site has already registered more than 200 million people. The price of the resource has reached 132 million dollars.
The Japanese version of the popular search engine Yahoo is also in trend. And again on the site you can see a lot of incomprehensibility. Therefore, for the Russian user, it is completely useless. But there is such a "mess of hieroglyphs" pretty well, namely, 114 million dollars.
