Move Over Google, Yahoo Is Top U.S. Web Property for July
Wednesday marked a major victory for Yahoo (NASDAQ:YHOO) and Marissa Mayer. Just over a year after her official appointment to chief executive officer, Mayer has managed to swing a number of high-profile Yahoo changes and acquisitions, and new statistics show that her efforts are finally paying off.
The Next Web reported Wednesday that comScore released its latest Web rankings for the month of July, and for the first time since March 2008, Yahoo ranked first. Yes, you heard me right. Yahoo ranked first.
The company was named the top US Web property thanks to the number of unique visitors it registered in July — a figure that sat at an estimated 197 million, after only reaching 189 million visitors in June. Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) came up short of Yahoo for the first time in years, posting 192 unique visitors after registering 193 million in June.
