These are some of the top 10 websites in Kenya as for today. These statistics are based from alexa.com. I compiled these list and omitted some other major sites like Google, Facebook and Youtube because they are not based locally here in Kenya.
To explain some few points, websites are ranked using
- Keywords; these can be words like nation news, kra itax, muliro gardens and any other words someone searches on Google and lands on that specific website.
- Backlinks is when someone uses your posts and links you back, you get a better rank when a site with a better ranking links you. I.e Wikipedia linking your site, your site’s rank will improve.
- Using long posts with more than 1500 words also improves your SEO.
- Traffic is the amount of visitors visiting a site per day, month weekly or yearly.
In this post I have use these words :
- Daily time on site – these is the time a visitor spends on a site per visit.
- Daily page views per visitor – these are the pages a reader opens when on a site.
- Traffic from search engines – these are keywords people search on major search engines to land on a page of a site.
- Total sites linking in – these are external sites linking to a website.
- Bounce rate – if a person opens one page on a site and doesn’t open a second page, that’s a bad bounce rate. Bounce rate is determined by how many the pages a visitor loads while on your site.
So these are some of the major websites in Kenya for now:
