Revealed: The 500 Most Linked Australian Websites

Most linked Australian websites

A while back, we published the Top 250 Australian blogs, and our audience loved it. So, by popular demand we’re back with more big data on the Australian web to share.

Here it is, this is the definitive list of 500 of the most linked Australian websites. There are 7738 websites in the Majestic Million, which is a chart ranking the live rank of the one million most linked websites.

The first column shows the website rank for Australia only. The second is the website address (you can click on to visit) and the third and last column, is their global rank against one million other websites.

Interestingly, many of the top 100 most linked Australian websites are either media organisations, government departments or social media platforms.

Why use links as a form of rank? Many experts agree that the more links a website has pointing at it, the more likely it is of quality and value to their audience. For example, people link to the ABC website a lot more than they link to this website, because the ABC have a vastly larger audience. So, in a way, this can give you a very rough estimate to popularity of a website.
