I’ve been playing around with Alexaholic this morning. Here are some interesting (at least to me) comparison charts.
- MSN, Yahoo! and Google
- Friendster, MySpace, Facebook
- New York Times, Washington Post, USAToday, Wall Street Journal
- Los Angeles Times, SFGate.com, SignOnSanDiego.com
- CNN, MSNBC, Fox News
- Daily Kos, Huffington Post, Michelle Malkin, Instapundit
- Monster, Career Builder
- Ebay, Amazon
- Craigslist, Wikipedia
- Flickr, YouTube, PhotoBucket
- Digg, Slashdot
- Apple, Dell
- Match.com, AdultFriendFinder.com
- Live Journal, Typepad, Blogger
The one clear trend that jumps out at me is that sites that rely on user content are pretty much uniformly on upward trajectories, while non-user sites are either flat or in decline. The growth of older user-content sites, such as Craigslist and Wikipedia, are starting to show less rapid growth, but even the major portal sites (MSN, Yahoo, Google) are lagging in recent months while Digg, YouTube and MySpace explode.
