ADOTAS – It’s weird to think of Yahoo! as the old man of the Internet, but at age 16 the portal boasts seniority in the pool of 10 most trafficked websites globally. On the Internet, however, longevity has never seemed like an advantage.
Web and reseller hosting company WebHostingBuzz has assembled the below infographic containing a visual history of the 10 most trafficked websites globally. Yahoo! appears first chronologically, but also present are familiar faces Facebook, Twitter Google, Blogger (owned by Google), YouTube (owned by Google — noticing a trend here?) and more. In addition, there’s Chinese IM service and social network Tencent as well as China search giant Baidu.
The chart includes milestones, acquisitions and relative workforce size — check out the full size version here.
