“Top 15 Most Popular Web 2.0 Websites”


As I’ve explained in earlier pieces, I periodically post “most popular” lists of websites or books that I think educators might find useful. Of course, there are a number of ways to gauge “popularity.” I just view these lists as opportunities to check-out some new sites or books, and find it interesting to see which ones might be particularly “popular.”

Today I thought I’d share a list of the Top 15 Most Popular Web 2.0 Websites.

Actually, I’ll only list the top seven here, and suggest you go to the site of the people (eBizMBA) who put it together to see the rest of them (they did the work, after all).  They say they used  “a combination of Inbound Links, Alexa Rank, and U.S. traffic data from Compete and Quantcast” to come-up with the ranking. Here’s the link to the full list.

Here are the top seven:

I'm a high school teacher in Sacramento, CA.


  1. Might be interesting to get teachers in different locations to see how many of the best/most popular web 2.0 sites are filtered in schools. From that list of seven above, only two (Wikipedia and WordPress) are accessible from the school where I work. Also, any widgets associated with content from blocked sites gets filtered out too, so I’m used to seeing pages covered in big blogs of yellow warnings rather than usable content.

  2. WordPress is the only one not blocked in my district.
