The News Corp social networking site MySpace.com is getting more visits than Yahoo! Inc’s biggest site, for the first time, researcher HitWise has revealed.
HitWise’s statistics for the first week of July show that the domain www.myspace.com got more visits, with 4.46%, than mail.yahoo.com, Yahoo’s best performer, with 4.42%.
However, when all the domains listed for these two companies in HitWise’s top 10 were added together, Yahoo got 10.03% of the total visits and MySpace got 7.31%.
HitWise’s reports are based on actual end user website visits gathered from ISPs in the US. The top 10 sites are listed according to third level domain. Sites run by Google, Microsoft and eBay also feature on the top 10 list.
