Published in: Google - Web Domains

Google SubdomainsFollowing is a list of 40 most popular subdomains of google.com in terms of unique visitors. If traffic is any measure of popularity, this chart definitely provides some good hints about the relative popularity of various Google services.

For instance, Google Answers service is no longer active but the archive Q&A’s continue to get more traffic that Google Blogs search and even Google Sites, a wiki like service that will soon replace Google Pages.

Google’s experiment with hosted news seems to be paying off as is evident from the traffic on domains ap.google.com and afp.google.com.

*This data is from Compete for the month of November 2008 and counts only unique visitors.
