[ 1,001 Best Web Sites - Courtesy of PC Computing Magazine ]


The WebCrawler Top 100 is a list of the most frequently linked URLs on the Web. Since the list is based on those documents that have been visited by the WebCrawler, it's only an estimate of the real truth. Every link to a particular document is counted once, although multiple links from one document to another are counted only once. Links from a document to itself don't count.

This list is based on data from 1,606,502 documents on over 259,847 different servers. It was last updated on Monday, June 16, 1997.
