Are any library sites on the top 1000? I scanned quickly and could not find LoC or another library. Let me know in the comments if you find one. I do know that librarians work for many of the top sites, though.

Any surprises?

    yes, where’s google?

  2. Crazy Dave said

    Would this be websites accessed via Google and that is why Google themselves are not in the top 1000?

  3. The list is from DoubleClick, and includes this explanation:

    “Keep in mind that the list excludes adult sites, ad networks, domains that don’t have publicly visible content or don’t load properly, and certain Google sites. ”

    My sense is that most Google sites are excluded.
