Tiktok Dethrones Google as Most Visited Site in 2021

TikTok is not coming any slow when it comes to breaking records. Just five years after its launch on the international market, the famous Chinese short-video social network has managed to become an almost unprecedented meteoric technological phenomenon. Now, TikTok has managed to unseat two giants like Google and Facebook to become the most visited website on the Internet in 2021.

It is certified by the report on trends in web traffic produced annually by the company Cloudflare, which also provides domain name servers and cybersecurity services. During the past year, TikTok occupied the seventh position in the ranking, which makes its 'surpass' to Google, unbeaten until now by the domain of features such as Maps, the translator or its photo service, even more impressive.

Considering all this, TikTok becomes the only Chinese-owned website that assaults a podium traditionally in American hands. TikTok is the international version of the Chinese app Douyin, active in the Asian market since September 2016. The social network, which only became available worldwide after its merger with Musical.ly in August 2018, has seen spectacular growth in recent years.

TikTok is currently the seventh most used platform in the world with 689 million active users, according to data from Hootsuite. However, these data do not give a complete picture of its impact, since its Chinese sister Douyin also has another 600 million users, which could place it among the five most powerful. The social network was the most downloaded in 2020 and in August of that year it reached 2,000 million global downloads.
