It’s a new month again, another time for us to check out how Nigerian sites performed last month. At the top of the rank is vanguardngr.com keeping in it strong on the number one spot for 3rd consecutive month as nairaland.com still find it a tough task to take on. As expected, there is nothing much in the top five spot as the sites in the rank only reshuffle moving up and down within the top five. Vconnect.com is not resting on its laurels having cracked into the top five spot for the first time last month. Gtbank.com gained a point and moves from the 5th spot to 4th. Vconnnect.com is now the third most visited Nigerian site. Punchng.com as top contender with nairaland.com for so many year can only settle for the 5th place.
We predict that, by the end of the month, jobberman.com will enter the top 5 spot given its impressive moves since the start of the year and also as 234next.com continues to battle to exist as a business. The company recently published its last print edition and revealed that doing media business is a tough one in the country.
Lindaikeji.blogspot.com entered the top-ten for the first time in its history, driven majorly by the rape issue she blogged about last month. The blog post has stir a revolution in the country against women abuse. It has also got the National Assembly to set-up a committee to review the rabe issue that happened in Abia State University (ABSU). Dealfish.com.ng drops two places to finish on the 10th spot.
- uniport.edu.ng +88
- myjobmag.com +48
- swiftng.com +25
- tradestable.com.ng +20
- flyaero.com +18
- jamb.org.ng -22
- waecdirect.org -15
- naijajobslink.com -13
- jetheights.com -13
- yabatech.edu.ng -10
If the trends happening globally since the start of the year is anything to go by, movements online will continue to have major impact offline. With the Arab spring, Occupy Wall Street and Linda’s ABSU Rape exposé, we should expect more of “from online to offline” discussion going forward.
On the internet sphere in Nigeria, unlike 2010 and 2009 where news websites dominated top Nigerian sites with most eyeballs, this year will end with an impressive showing from other internet service companies. Sites like; jobberman.com, dealfish.com.ng, vconnect.com will end the year on an impressive note.
