MySpace Passed By YouTube On Alexa

    January 11, 2007

Now, no one’s going to suggest YouTube has passed MySpace to become the number one trafficked website on the internet (assuming MySpace is even that), but Google’s aquisition can claim one thing: #5 on Alexa’s rankings.

It’s quite an honor, to be moving up a questionably accurate, non-respected, easilly spammed service. Also, not how Google’s Orkut is now number 7, giving Google spots 3, 5 and 7, a nice bit of symmetry.

Google should think about linking Orkut to YouTube, maybe just encouraging YouTube users to move over, or giving YouTube users ready-made Orkut accounts. Gotta take advantage of the power of both properties.
