Have it ever come across to you what is the most visited local website in Malaysia?
According to the Malaysian Digital Association, online marketplace Mudah.my was the top local website in Malaysia with 2.264 million unique visitors in October. The platform allows anyone to buy and sell anything they want, and although the website claims to have more than 5.2 million unique visitors a month, MDA pegged its monthly visits to only half of what it claims.
Here’s how the website looks like:
Mudah came ahead of Maybank2u.com.my (2.188 million), Airasia.com (1.245 million) and Cimbclicks.com.my (1.090 million).
Another interesting point to note is that Mudah.my is a joint venture between Singapore Press Holdings Limited and Schibsted ASA.
Singapore Press holdings Limited (SPH) is Southeast Asia’s leading media organization with a stable of 17 newspaper titles in 4 languages; over 100 magazine titles and numerous online websites. SPH has also ventured into broadcasting, outdoor advertising and properties.
Schibsted ASA through its subsidiary Schibsted Classified Media (SCM) is currently the biggest online classified advertising company in Europe.
Looks like SPH is not just dominating the online space in Singapore, but extended its reach to its neighbour Malaysia too.

It is also interesting to note that Mudah, the top local site in Malaysia is not owned by a Malaysian, but jointly own by a Singaporean and European company.
