According to comScore, a Web data tracker, Americans spent 302 billion minutes online last month. That's 6,760 lifetimes at 85 years apiece.

So where do we spend all this time?
Checking e-mail is the most popular online activity for the 221 million North American adults online, according to Forrester. About 82% of those check e-mail at least once per week. Nearly half shop on the Web, while 42% read news online every week. Other Web pastimes include banking, which 55% of users said they did in the last three months; playing videogames (24% in the same period); buying airline tickets (23%); and locking in hotel rooms (20%).

I was certain, WeAreTeachers would be on the top 20 most visited websites. Looks like we have much work to do. Check the most visited web sites or visit the Forbes blog to see the most trafficked sites then and now.The 20 Most Trafficked Web Sites: from Nielsen Online as of July 2008.
