We don’t have a system to rank websites in Nepal. The truth is, we don’t have that many quality websites to rank. The only tool I could find was Alexa.com. It gives country rankings of websites.
A very simple analysis of the data shows that all the popular sites in Nepal are foreign sites. Only one Nepali site in the top 10 ranking is ranked 10th.
The analysis showed that:
- Facebook (no. 1) is more popular than Google (2 and 3). Due to the local tdl (com.np and .com) the visitors in Google are divided. When they are combined, Google might still be the most popular website in Nepal.
- The first Nepali website, Nagariknews.com is ranked 10, followed by eKantipur.com in rank 12.
- Out of 50 top websites popular in Nepal, only 30% websites (15 numbers) were Nepali websites.
- Nepali news websites were the most popular in Nepal with, almost half (40%) of the 15 Nepali websites were news websites. Entertainment sites were second with 27% share (4 numbers).
- xnepali.com was ranked 43 and was the 13th most popular website in Nepal.
Ranking tables follow:

With this analysis we can conclude that news sites are the most popular Nepali websites. After news, entertainment site are second most popular websites.
Disclaimer: The ranking data was collected on July 16, 2010. These values are dynamic and might be different at the time of publication. Alexa ranking might not be a true representation of ranking. This ranking is only true for the Nepali visitors. Hence, sites like dcnepal.com and nepaljapan.com that are more popular abroad, didn’t make it to the top in the list.
