According to comScore and Business Insider, the biggest website in the world amassed 837 million unique visitors during December 2012. That must have been Google, you might say, but you’d be wrong. In fact, Facebook took the top spot followed by Google, YouTube, Yahoo, and others.
We wanted to put those numbers in perspective, and here you can see some of our take on the biggest websites in the world.

This is our first attempt at using Storify for creating content. You can find a few more of our creations here. So far we’re not quite sure how it will fit in with this blog, social media, and other things we use, but we are, at the very least, intrigued about the possibilities.
Note: The Business Insider article doesn’t specify for what time period the data is for, but we contacted the authors and they said it’s for December 2012.
That's a little unfair, because you're probably counting the same 'unique visitor' twice or even three times, when combining the Google Websites. Perhaps it's more fair if you compared pageviews and then add them together?
