Google surpassed Yahoo in November and become world's second most visited website. The most visited website is Microsoft's whole network.
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, ComScore Networks Inc. said today. Both sites trail Microsoft, which had 501.7 million visitors, ComScore said.
It is the first time that Mountain View, California-based Google attracted more visitors than Yahoo, reflecting Google's growing popularity outside the U.S. Sunnyvale, California-based Yahoo is still the most-visited site within the U.S., Reston, Virginia-based ComScore said. Microsoft's visitors increased 3.3 percent from a year earlier.
