Ynet is the most popular Israeli news and general content website. It is owned by the same conglomerate that operates Yediot Ahronot, the country's secondleading daily newspaper (Israel Hayom is the current leading).[1] However, all of Ynet's content is original work, published exclusively on the website and written by an independent staff.[2][3]

Ynet was launched on June 2000 in Hebrew only, but since 2004 operates a short English edition, Ynetnews, which deals mainly with news and commentary. In addition, Ynet hosts the online version of Yedioth Aharanot's media group Magazines: Laisha (which also operates Ynet's fashion section), Pnai Plus, Blazer, GO magazine, and Mentha. For two years, Ynet had also an Arabic version, which ceased to operate in May 2005. Ynet's main competition comes from Walla! and Nana. Since 2008, Ynet is Israel's most popular internet portal, as measured by Google Trends.[4]

According to Alexa Internet traffic rankings, Ynet is among the top 1000 websites in the world and the top 10 sites in Israel.[5]

"200 Greatest Israelis" poll (2005)

In 2005, Ynet conducted a poll to determine whom the general public considers the 200 Greatest Israelis of all time.[6][7][8][9][10] Due to the nature of the poll used to select and rank the Israelis, the results do not pretend to be an objective assessment.[11]
