    What makes Indians busy on Internet?

    Guess what? No..It’s not work or bollywood :-), It’s “Scrapping”. According Alexa traffic rankings for India, Orkut.com stands the most viewed/visited website after yahoo.com. I would give Orkut.com as numero Uno, because I believe Yahoo.com gets most of the hits due to it’s messenger traffic but towards the website.

    The Rankings are as follows…(top 10 rankings)

    01. Yahoo!

    02. Orkut.com (Where people fight on stupid topics for days and years)

    03. Google India

    04. Google.com

    05. Rediff

    06. MSN (msn.com)

    07. Naukri.com (A Job’s site)

    08. YouTube

    09. Windows Live (live.com)

    10. Blogger.com

    Some more interesting facts seems weird to me. The trends clear shows that Indians are wasting lot of limited Internet connectivity that country has as of today. Let’s see some interesting rankings

    • 11 : RapidShare.com – A site which is well known for sharing files on internet.
    • 14: Debonairblog – A porn blog. Posts lot of MMS videos online.
    • 16. MegaUpload.com – Similiar to RapidShare
    • 37: MegaShare.com – Similiar to RapidShare

    Top Informational, Corporate & News Sites (India only)

    • 12: Wikipedia.org (Good to see Wikipedia growing in India)
    • 13 : Indiatimes.com (Times Of India’s web portal)
    • 15: Microsoft.com
    • 17 : Raaga.com (Indian music streaming site)
    • 18: Sify (Satyam Infoway web portal)
    • 20: Timesjobs.com (Times of India’s Job’s portal)
    • 21: Monster India (Jobs portal)
    • 24: Jeevansaathi.com (Matrimonial)
    • 28: ClickJobs.com (Jobs)
    • 62. Eenadu.net (Telugu News Paper)

    The top ranked sites (1-10) are showing a healthy traffic in netizens. “Search” is still stands as a hot trend in India. Blogger.com coming at rank 10 shows that India is stepping in to serious blogging right from masses.

    At medium level ranks, pornographic and pirated software downloads have taken most of the traffic. This is clearly showing an indication of usage of pirated software. Very bad !

    Yahoo Photos are going to be FlickrD !

    Via TechCrunch

    TechCrunch reports that Yahoo is going to announce the shutdown of their famous Yahoo Photos service which was recently refurbished in terms of UI and experience. Yahoo photos was one of the most famous photo album storage sites before the services like Sony’s ImageStation started in Web 1.0 era.

    Post acquisition of Flickr, the world’s favorite photo storage service, Yahoo has started developing features and Yahoo integration on Flickr.

    Yahoo is not going to ditch you by throwing all of your photos in the garbage. Instead, yahoo will provide a smooth transition process of moving the existing image albums to famous  social photo services like Flickr, Photobucket, Shutterfly with 1-Click transfer support from Yahoo photo albums itself. Yahoo will also make all the images available to be downloaded at full resolution or to be printed at discounted price to the normal price.

    iGoogle.com ? India’s Google

    Google has re-furbished it’s home page API channel “ig” also known as Google home page earlier. Now they renamed it as iGoogle, sounds a bit of Apple here, but google managed to get in to the “i” space.

    But amazingly the domain iGoogle lead me to Google India home page rather than google.com/ig.

    Google must be working on it to redirect to the relevant page soon. Goog ! are you there?
