Best Overall Websites of 2011

The best overall websites of 2011 allow us to stay connected with friends and family, learn about things that interest us, search the web to find anything and everything, giggle like school girls and express ourselves through blogging and social media. While several websites, namely the likes of Google, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, stood above the rest as the most visited in 2011, everyone has favorite websites and that's why we invite you to add your own list of the best overall websites of 2011 to our rankings below.

It's really no shock that Google is one of the most-visited sites in the world as many times when someone visits the Internet they are looking for something in particular. Google provides the perfect medium to find that something through their industry-leading search engine. Google is not all about the search though with dozens of other products from their popular Gmail service to Google Maps, Google AdWords and their own social networking platform, Google Plus.

Speaking of social networking, Facebook easily comes in as another top site of 2011. The top website is used by billions around the globe who enjoy keeping in touch with family and friends, discovering news and other goodies, and of course playing the many casual games. Twitter is another leading social networking platform that is used by numerous people each day as everyone from media outlets, world leaders, celebrities and us normal folk sends our news, thoughts and other nuggets in 140-character snippets.

Of course the top websites of 2011 are too plentiful to name them all but a few others stood out from the pack based on what people were trying to do online. Those looking for information steered toward Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia. Penny-pinchers stalked the top coupon websites. People searching for quick entertainment often chose YouTube, the world's largest video sharing website. Jobseekers flocked to websites like LinkedIn, the fast-growing business networking site. Kids' websites were in high demand as well. The list goes on and on.

So tell us folks. Were you more of an Amazon user or an eBay shopper? Did you use Flickr more than you used Tumblr? Did you Bing or Yahoo!? CNN or BBC for news? Add your own list of the best websites of 2011 and contribute to the overall rankings as we crown the top websites of 2011.
