I don’t trust any metrics but this one will make headlines. From the Times:
Google, the search engine company, displaced Yahoo as the world’s second-most-visited Web site in November and closed in on the leader, Microsoft, a market researcher said yesterday.
Visitors to Google’s sites rose 9.1 percent, to 475.7 million in November from a year earlier, while those to Yahoo sites rose 5.2 percent, to 475.3 million, the researcher, ComScore Networks, said. Both sites trail Microsoft, which had 501.7 million visitors, ComScore said
2 thoughts on “Google Bigger Than Yahoo?”
MS is only the first b/c many MS products forward browsers to MS sites without user approval
very different metrics to gauge “bigness”:
* # of unregistered visitors
* # of minutes per (session/day/time period)
* # of pg views per user, per time period
guessing Yahoo is still far ahead of Google in the 2nd & 3rd categories.
but Google monetizes a lot better.
