What’s the Most Important Web Site on Earth? According to Google, It’s Google.com

Most of the billions of Web sites out there today have a site map, labeled as such. So if you run a search on the term “site map” in Google, you should get a fairly decent indication of which sites Google thinks are most important, shouldn’t you?

Here are the 25 organizations whose Web sites come up first in a “site map” search:

1. Google
2. eBay
3. Apple
4. CNN Money
5. Wikipedia
6. Microsoft
7. The Seattle Times
8. The Chronicle of Higher Education
9. The New York Times
10. Internal Revenue Service
11. FindLaw
12. CNET
13. The White House
14. U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services
15. Austin American-Statesman
16. U.S. Dept. of Defense
17. The Washington Post
18. U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs
19. LiveJournal
20. MapQuest
21. The Arizona Republic
22. MSNBC
23. International Monetary Fund
24. U.S. National Library of Medicine
25. Los Angeles Times

Whaddya know? Google thinks it’s important. Of course, we’ve demonstrated this before.
