Most visited websites by Mauritians

It turns out that Amazon’s search engine, Alexa has a Top 100 list of the most visited websites by country and Mauritius is included! It’s damn interesting to find the websites that fellow Mauritians visit.

Number 1 and 2 are no surprises: MSN and Yahoo! respectively.  Maybe, slightly surprised that it’s not the other way round but these two are the world’s portal to the web.  However, number 3 is a surprise: Hi5! We knew that practically all Mauritian teenagers as well as many others were on the social community website but this pretty much confirms how popular the thing actually is.

Google Mauritius is on number 4 meaning that not many Mauritians use the Personalised Search Feature of Google.  Indeed, this feature doesn’t work with Google.mu.  Google.com comes up at spot 7, Google.fr at spot 16 and Google UK at 58th.

Megaupload is on number 5 and Rapidshare.com is at 10.  Seems like many Mauritians do download some music from the net after all.

Servihoo has a very decent 8th place while a website called Miweb.mu, the Mauritian social community, has the 9th place and is more visited than MySpace which is ten places below at 19.

YouTube is the only video-sharing website represented and is at spot 12.  As for blogging, the first blogging website pops up at number 11 with, no not Blogger.com which is 23rd, but Skyblog, the French blogging service.  Wonder why there are so few Mauritian blogs around then.

Wikipedia is on at 21st place, bbc.co.uk at 29th, l’express at 35th, imdb at 47th and about.com at 65th.

The gaming websites are also well represented, with GameSpot at number 52.  Porn, only appears a couple of times.  Well, well, well… Seems like we, Mauritians, are well-behaved after all.

Then there’s sports obviously, with football dominating them all.  The first sports website is none other than the official website of Liverpool Football Club which comes up before the likes of the bbc and l’express at number 25.  Official website of Manchester United can’t quite beat the bbc and follows at number 30.  Live Score is at 36 and Soccernet at 50.

Amazon.com is the big loser; it only appears at number 82.  Mauritians aren’t much in online buying it seems.  Only a matter of time, I suppose.  Nokia is at number 90 and just for your info, Shaadi, a company which offers matrimonial and wedding related services for Indian and south Asian communities worldwide is at number 98!

The Mauritian Blog Tracker doesn’t make the list yet but with the popularity of blogging websites as mentioned above, it’s only a matter of time, me thinks.

    lol, thanks for the info…

    It’s a surprise for me that MSN occupies the top spot. But then, maybe it’s due to the fact that many of us have a Hotmail account and regularly use Windows Live Messenger. What do you think?

    It’s also interesting to see how many file uploading sites (Megaupload, Rapidshare, etc.) figure on this list. In my opinion, this shows how deep mauritians are into illegal downloading! It’s surely been brought about by the “broadband” boom which happened during the course of the last two years.

    Of course, Mauritians are very good leechers!

    Um, your blog seems interesting. Really busy right now though. I’m swamped with deadlines for different articles. It is getting quite straining and stressful actually.

    But, once that’s over, I shall think about something for you.

    This is interesting, I did a search on Yahoo, Alta Vista and Google, looking for things like Mauritians Online, Mauritian Singles, Mauritian Match, Mauritiaan Community, Mauritian Friends, mauritian Family and Mauritian Events and there is one site that I find very interesting and it always comes up and that is http://www.mauritianmatch.com.

    MauritianMatch.com does have it all, i think I’m gonna register with this one, as thee others out there look really lame and these guys have a definite mission.

    Thanks to these search engines and the way Mauritians are using the net, it seems that we now have an online community that are truly cyber-junkies.
