21 billion hits, it's hard to think of just how many hits on a website that is, but if anyone could pull it off, it would be Google with YouTube. According to a report from comScore, YouTube received 20,933,113,000 page views in October alone.




Nearly 21 billion hits in one month! This is enough to have roughly three videos watched by every single human being alive on this planet right now. YouTubers spent an average of seven hours watching the month's hottest videos.


Facebook actually came in second with 346 million with sites like VEVO, Microsoft, and others all scaling down from YouTube's epic 21 billion. Even sites like Hulu only drew 791 million, Yahoo! Sites took 551 million and NBC Universal saw 134 million.


Impressive numbers, but YouTube's 21 billion is just insane.
