Nepalnet.Net - The window to websites on Nepal

This year our Online News ranking has been divided into two categories; “Best Overall Online News” and “Best Online News in Nepali”

The “Best Overall Online News” is ranked primarily on its content and secondarily on its presentation aspects such as user-friendly features, easy navigation, and sound design. We defined superior content by fresh news content, its quality and the diverse quantity of news. Based on the content, is still the king of News on Nepal closely followed by Kantipur Online (www., Kamana Publication and Himalayan Times ( Nepalnews posts news relatively fast. Nepalnews has its strength in its extensive collection of quality news articles from various publications.


On the other hand, Nepalnews’s website did not have a pleasing design or other user-friendly features such as viewer comments, or a separate page for each news story etc., like other news websites. Himalayan Times and closely followed by Kantipur Online were technically better, user-friendlier and had better design and navigation. is still commendable on its decision to present the latest news in Nepali.

The ranking this year has seen some major changes. Kantipuronline moved a notch to No 1 to tie with Nepalnews. Himalayan Times gets second place closely followed by the followed by NewsofNepal. Spacetime was dropped out of ranking because it did not have significant online presence. Nepalnews is still a No.1 news website without any significant upgrade to its website on the basis of its great content. However, since last year two of its major competition News website kantipuronline and Himalayan Times have upgraded their website, it is time for Nepalnews to be proactive and improve some of aspects of its website.
