SEO site toppled as most-popular new gTLD domain

There’s a new domain topping the charts as the most-visited new gTLD site.

A few days ago, namu.wiki replaced searchengines.guru in the top spot, the first time the leading position has changed hands since DI PRO first started tracking daily Alexa scores in July 2014.

namu.wiki appears to be a Japanese Korean wiki site dedicated to some kind of manga/anime thing. It was registered in April.

searchengines.guru is a Russian forum devoted to discussions of search engine optimization.

The Japanese Korean site has an Alexa rank of 1,875 today, compared to 1,994 for the SEO site. The highest score we’ve ever recorded for a new gTLD domain was 717.

Interestingly, only two of the site in the top 10 are in English. Two appear to be associated with spam.

The usual caveats about the reliability of Alexa data applies.
