TikTok, a social networking service focused on streaming video has overtaken Google from the most popular website worldwide in 2021. Previously, TikTok had maintained its top position in the list of most downloaded apps on smartphones in 2021.
According to a new report by Cloudflare, TikTok is now the number one most visited site in 2021.
In 2020, TikTok occupies the 7th or 8th position. To note, Cloudfare is a United States web infrastructure and website security company that provides content delivery and DDoS mitigation services.
In this test, Cloudfare used its new tool which was launched in September 2020, namely Cloudfare Radar.
Cloudflare stated that TikTok first gained first place for internet traffic on February 17, 2021, but only lasted a day.
TikTok then reclaimed the top spot for a few days in March and May. But starting August 10, the platform topped the rankings almost every day.
In October and November, TikTok again overtook Google and became the most visited site of 2021.
The power of TikTok cannot be separated from the global pandemic conditions that have made some residents move from inside their homes. And TikTok became one of their entertainment.
Here’s a list of the 10 most popular websites at the end of 2021 based on Cloudflare data:
