Ethiopia - Top 10 Ethiopian Websites for 2009
nazret is pleased to announce the annual list of the ten most popular Ethiopian websites for 2009. The websites considered for the rankings are all news websites with a primary focus on Ethiopia. We have used the three most popular and freely available website traffic analysis services, Quantcast, Alexa and Compete. But most of these services fall prey to one core problem – they don’t have a way to directly measure the traffic on the websites that they’re monitoring, with the exception of Quantcast which allows sites to embed code to get an accurate reading, but this only works for websites that have opted in. nazret.com has opted in with Quantcast to have the traffic directly measured. Alexa measures the popularity of a website based on the combination of average daily visitors and the number of page views in the past three month. One shortcoming with Alexa is it only measures visitors with the Alexa toolbar installed in their browsers. Compete estimates site traffic and engagement metrics based on the daily browsing activity of over 2,000,000 U.S. Internet users. So each tool has its own methodology and no single tool is perfect, so we have presented the results from all three services.
Quntcast which allows webmasters to embed a code on their websites to directly measure the traffic ranks nazret.com as the number 1 ranked Ethiopian website, ranking 21,780 in the world. This is based on a directly measured data by Quantcast. Compete.com, another website ranking tool also ranks nazret.com as the most popular Ethiopian website for 2009.
Here are the top 10 most popular Ethiopian websites measured by Quantcast
Qauntcast's data is based on Directly Measured Data for websites who opt-in.

I guess you left over some new websites such as habeshaintimate.com
Congratulations Nazret staff. I wish you and every living Ethiopian a great success in 2 O 1 O!!!
areifu: just checked that site and wonder how many Ethiopians would know its barely existence leave alone paying it a deliberate visit? It shouldn’t even exist!
Igzer EtyoP’yan And’ Yargat, Kek’fum YiT’ebikat.
Wakes up every day proud that I’m an Ethiopian.
Good for nazret, but I have serious resevertions about ER and Mr. Kifle for couple of reasons. First, his stuff is all all about sky is falling. It is more polarizig and way negative voice and if many folks feel that that way then way god helps Ethiopia as we know. Second,his modus operandi is very predictable as he always tries to fish like minded opinios. No different point of view is tolarated at any measure and it like Melez’s dictator in cyber world who rules one. The man is typical megalomaniac with inflated ego bigger than New York size. Third, if you read between the lines of topics,the man is either under the Afwork spell or some how a typical and deceiful Erit smart ass. No wonder that Erits had always out smated than average other habesha.
habeshaintimate.com, according to alexa is 4,005,283th way down at the bottom, they need to do a lot of work to attract traffic!!!
As for nazret.com even though you have a better ranking, you don’t have to consider yourself a good source of news. Rather understand that there are no better sources to inform and educate our fellow Ethiopians.
If you are honest for yourself, you have to be sad. Starting from your website you don’t have a good website,for that matter do you even remember the last time you discussed with in your staff about the structure of your website?
You don’t even use twitter , facebook, or any other social media. I guess you think there are not much Ethiopian using social media networks.
Have you ever thought about better way of monetizing your website?
This is not to discourage you guys, no matter what, you have been a better source of information and for that I applaud. I am sure you will do better next year and we expect better. I wish you success. Being online since 18-Jan-2000 shouldn’t be in vain!!!
Hey, thanks for a useful list. I have been looking for the top Ethiopian sites and this just saved me a lot of time.
All the best,
Congra Nazret. Sorry that the website of the fascists, Ethiopianreview, is even in contest. It is not Ethiopian but Eritrean review.
Congra nazret. I am very surprised there are still people who regularly visit Ethiopianreview and Ethiomedia.
Once I visited ethiomedia I tried to click on links which were tagged as a sourse file. Where ever I clicked it takes me to there own page. I can’t belive that they selectevely cut and pasted from sites such as BBC, CNN to suite their stupid idea. This shows how they are so unconfident that they even know that once you get away from their site you will never go back again. I feel sorry for the stupid diaspora who is still trapped in ethiomedia in the 21st century.
Who are the clueless that view Ethiopian review?
congratulation is in order for Nazret.com - So with all these money you guys are making advertising for all these companies that are popping on your sites - it is time for your guys to open an orphanage in Addis -
dear nazret, I am a Libyan who through events happened to know a lot about Ethiopia including it’s language, and I managed to set up a website to pursue Libyan interest under the cover of the name “Ethiopia". would that make my website Ethiopian website even if the content of my site is not only anti- Ethiopian but pro-Libya. bear in mind, I am talking about ‘content’ here. E-review is specifically dedicated to degrade not just Woyane as they claim to be, but Ethiopia as a whole and promote Eritrea. tell me, why would an Ethiopian make social comparison between Ethiopians and Eritreans against Ethiopia if he is indeed Ethiopian yet you guys despite all the evidence are still happy to compromise your country’s dignity for the benefit of being called moderate. but trust me, you are not being moderate, you are being fooled by a cheap Eritrean. unless of course I am being a fool for thinking you guys are Ethiopians. but then again, any thing is possible in this day and age of internet politics.
I believe I have learned a lot from this website but you need to stop selecting topics which are often against Ethiopian image. Honstly speaking the website is relatively fair.
It is a shame an eritrean web site is called Ethiopian review. And it is well accepted and legally oprating under Ethiopian name,while promoting only eritreans views. In other ways this means elias kifle doesn’t believe the “independence"and the so called eritrean souvernity,by making them a parasite to Ethiopia. Well they will always stay as YE BEY TEMELKACH. While he makes his web site popullar in their price.
your alexa website ranking is not correct!
Tadis.com got it right you must correct it !
nazret and ethiopianreview are like rivals….the latter probably show themselves as number 1 on their website.
I think Ethiopian Review is the best sites in terms not to provide an bias news to the users.
When one do a traficcing analysis, shouldn’t they consider the uncontrolled ads and popups that are running?
I mean what is so special about Nazeret and ethiopianreview?
When opening these websites you will face dozons of popups and other stuffs rolling around. I am not a computor technician but I am aware that these ads and popups could influence the calculations you made.
you should be honest especially when you start to compare with other popup free websites.
Thimk about it…
what about bilisumma.com and gadaa.com GALATOMA ALL
I LIKE NAZRET.COM A LOT
The good news is that the main TOP On
LIST websites are those of the patriotic Ethiopian diaspora peoples
fighting the evil TPLF regime .
