Google Loses To Yahoo! In Time Spent Online

Feb 1, 2007 - 7:38 am 0 by

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.
