Monthly visitors for YouTube have reached 1 billion and the site is still growing. This video-sharing website is used for uploading and viewing videos that are created by people from all walks of life. Furthermore, this cements its spot at the top three for most visited and searched site, next only to Google and Facebook.
Just May last year, YouTube made the news because it has reached 800 million visitors. It made an average of 20 million new visits each month, which makes it safe from getting shut down by Google, so to speak. Bigger sites such as YouTube should not worry too much about being closed down, since it is one of the more profitable ventures of Google.
