Why do people visit the top 10 Quantcast sites?

My friend Nicholas Mac Connell says that, “People read to answer questions.” Maybe this also explains why people visit the 10 most popular websites according to Quantcast.

Human nature begins to show itself when we bucketize the most popular websites by the questions they answer. According to Ray Dalio, human nature is the driving force behind the market.  Therefore, companies seeking to beat the market should hire marketers who can redirect the top questions asked by human nature through the companies’ own products and services.
