    A.O.L. is #5 O.M.G.
    America is still with them, I never understood how they could still be running, I go to A.O.L. sites around twice a month and I see absolutely nothing of quality, always hoping that they’ll update something.

      I don’t think I’ve been back to AOL since the days they were THE major portal to web, which was like in 1999!

          I’m thinking more in terms of the landing page.

    Surprised to see AOL so high… but then… I’m surprised to see Yahoo at #2 as well…

    Facebook is one site…while Microsoft is all of their sites combined…Yahoo sites are now number one because they bought Tumblr…I don’t even have to mention Google who has like a gazillion sites…AOL surprisingly still have alot of old email accounts that people hold on to because they don’t want to change.
