NEW YORK: Yahoo! dethroned Google as the most visited site in the US in July 2013.
This is the first time in two years that Yahoo! has gained the top spot, relegating the search engine giant to the second slot.
According to comScore, Yahoo! received 196.6 million unique visitors in July as against Google’s 192.3 million. Mobile users were not included in the count, nor were their repeat visits.
Microsoft ranked third with 179.6 million unique views, and Facebook fourth with 142.3 million unique views.
Tumblr, which Yahoo! acquired for $1 billion, came in 28th. But its traffic was not included in the Yahoo count.
Looks like blonde CEO Marissa Mayer, who moved to Yahoo from Google, is delivering.
