In analytics firm Compete’s measurement of the top 50 domains by unique visitors in September, five of the ten top gainers involve some type of content sharing.

YouTube, Flickr, Facebook, Wikipedia, and Digg were among the top domains adding visitors year over year for September 2007. Out of the ten big gainers, YouTube topped the list by bringing in 21.6 million more unique visitors, to a total of 47.4 million for the month.

Jay Meattle Compete blogger Jay Meattle said social networking darling Facebook saw an increase of 14.6 million visitors, but MySpace and its gain of 10.2 million should not be discounted.

At the top of the 50 domains, Yahoo and Google rated one and two in unique visitors. Despite Yahoo’s documented issues and reorganizations, they haven’t suffered in traffic. Over 130 million unique visitors arrived at Yahoo’s domains in September, 124.5 million at Google’s.

Microsoft likely had traffic to its domains shuffle from one to another during the month. Passport.net and MSN.com both lost visitors.

“My guess is that most of their lost traffic went to Live.com, MSN’s new portal. Live.com is up 10.2M unique visitors during the same time period,” said Meattle.

On a closing note, those looking for love, or at least a reasonable, physical facsimile of it, have increasingly turned to Fling.com. Their traffic rose by 17.4 million from September 2006 to September 2007 to 18.7 million. AdultFriendFinder had nearly 24 million visitors in the month.
