Google Passes Yahoo in Tally of Visitors

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.

It
was the first time that Google, based in Mountain View, Calif.,
attracted more visitors than Yahoo, reflecting Google’s growing
popularity outside the United States. Yahoo, based in Sunnyvale,
Calif., is still the most-visited site within the United States,
ComScore said. Microsoft’s visitors increased 3.3 percent from a year
earlier.
