Google Loses To Yahoo! In Time Spent Online

The Compete.com Blog posted results for their data analysis of where do people spend most of their time online. While Yahoo! came in second with 8.5%, Google only captured 2.1%. MySpace came in first place with 11.9%. These figures include all of Google's subdomains. If you add in YouTube.com to Google's mix, you add 0.6% to 2.1% and get 2.7%.

Compete.com has some great tools by the way.

In any event, the forum reaction to this study in WebmasterWorld is "not surprising." Check out some of these quotes:

Well, that makes sense. Yahoo is mostly a portal, while Google is a search engine.

Not at all surprising, but not because of the relative values of the sites. Rather we are seeing the results of strategic placement within a default operating system setup.

When Google launches games.google.com then they could be talked about in the same context as yahoo, but its obviously no comparison now.

Cute.
