MSN beats Yahoo and Google. So what?

August 15, 2006

Comscore released it’s monthly numbers. According to the Comscore unique visitor numbers MSN beats Yahoo and Google. The numbers can be interpreted either way and don’t really say much. Yahoo and MSN obviously rank higher b/c their properties are massive portals with a huge amount of content/pages. Google however redirects it’s traffic mostly to third parties. No reason for various sources to misinterpret these numbers.
