Every year time.com, the Time Magazine website, releases a list of the top 50 best websites and this year there are some surprises, at least in my opinion.
Time’s criteria to choose these sites is quite simple, they pick websites that help users improve their internet experience like yelp.com and its UK version yelp.co.uk – Yelp helps you find the best restaurant, pubs and other local services in your area.
Or another site that meets the selection criteria is Fora.tv; a site with a wide variety of videos in a variety of subjects that are piped in from the top leading conferences from around the world. Its a great site to visit when you are tired of watching cat videos on YouTube and you feel that your brain needs some intellectual stimulation.
Within Time’s 50 best websites for 2009 you will find a list of sites to help you surf the web better, enjoy yourself, shop or just kill time on the Web.
But the big surprise is that sites like Digg and MySpace were left out of this year’s list.
Digg, as most of you already know, is a leading social news site famous for driving tons of traffic when content is promoted to its front page.
MySpace needs no introduction, the second biggest social networking site on the web which over the past year or so lost its top spot to Facebook.
Over the past year both sites have encountered ups and downs which might explain why they were not included in this year’s list.
Do you know any site that should’ve been on that list, or do you not agree with some of sites you saw on it? Please leave your opinions in our comments section and maybe we can make our own top 50 websites list!
