Many people are aware of world’s top visited sites like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube etc., but remain clueless about the traffic rankings for Northeast India related websites.
Here’s a list of Top 10 Most Visited Northeast India websites in 2012, based on Alexa rankings. Probably this is the first survey done to measure the traffic data indications for the region’s websites. It’s encouraging to find so many websites springing up lately from the region once considered to be a remote territory.
Today the region is witnessing an explosion of activities even in digital awareness as well. Thanks to the incredible growth of internet in the region, with the invasions of social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Buzznet and MySpace etc.
A recent survey published by National Book Trust says, despite economic backwardness in the region, The northeastern states have a greater number of young readers in the country. 43 percent of northeastern youths are readers.
My first experience with regional websites started back in 2000, when i was schooling in Chennai. There was this two popular local sites (Kuknalim.com and E-pao.net) that often gets me online, feeding me with information/news happening at home and also helped me interact with online pals from the region on their sites chat rooms. Now Kuknalim.com has ceased its operation. The other E-pao.net is still active and currently positioned No.2 website ranking in this survey list.
The list prepared here is completely based on research and the ranking information provided by Alexa nothing more. Traffic data and global rankings giant Alexa’s web stats are updated daily.
