Top SEO Sites Ranked by SimilarWeb

Our analysis experts have been working hard to provide a list of the most successful sites involved with SEO during July 2014. This list should give you a few insights on who rules the roost in the SEO world and help you begin to understand how they do it.

The first fact that stands out is that the 7 out of the top 10 sites receiving the most organic traffic also feature in the top 10 global sites for desktop visits. It’s obvious, therefore, that these are giants of the internet and understand how to pull in traffic from all sources. Investigating the SEO strategies of these 10 sites is very important in recognizing just how they structure their content to win traffic.

Methodology – Top ranking SEO sites are ranked by their traffic which originates from search engines like Google, Bing, and Ask.com. Data is taken from SimilarWeb PRO using the largest web and mobile panel in the online industry.  This report covered 600 billion website visits for the month of July.

The second insight to be gleaned from this list is that CONTENT IS KING! Wikipedia, YouTube, WordPress and IMDB are all seen as sites which carry a level of authority and are frequently backlinked as a result. To improve your SEO statistics, then, you really need to concentrate on creating content rich material which will increase return visits to your site.

The third, and final insight, that I’m going to share is the importance of community in SEO. Facebook, Wikipedia, WordPress, IMDB, Yahoo and YouTube all have a strong emphasis on community and involving their users. By working closely with their user base, these sites build connections and garner an excellent understanding of how to engage their users.
