French term or phrase: troisieme audience des sites Internet
Does this mean third most visited or is the site rated third?
jp
English translation:Third largest audience
Explanation:
Without any doubt, this site boasts the the "third largest audience".

If the site ranked "third", you'd have something like "se trouve troisième/en troisième position derrière Yahoo et Lycos respectivement..."

To clarify the comment suggesting a possible referece to senior citizens, the phrase would have to be something along the lines of "le site préféré du troisième âge".

Deb

Explanation:
troisieme is also sometime used in connection with a social/group/class of of people meaning senior citizens. Without further context it is hard to determine.
Just like audience can mean interest.
Or it can be translated depending on
context and text before: it ranks third ...
Good luck.
