Explain this to me.

Quote
But one year later, Mayer steered Yahoo past Google in U.S. web traffic in July -- the first time Yahoo has claimed the top spot since May 2011, according to market researcher comScore.

Yahoo edged Google with 196.6 million unique monthly visitors, to 192.3 million.

But...

Quote
Granted, the rare monthly win for Yahoo does not include search and mobile results. But it is, by any measure, a landmark achievement for a company left for dead by many.

So what does this mean then? More people went to the yahoo site than the google site...but  these numbers only include those who didn't do a search on google?  Why else go to google?


Also, I have never intentionally been to a yahoo page...unless it came up as a result to a question in a google search.

probably includes yahoo personals, yahoo shopping, yahoo news, and email.  I know a lot of people who use google for searching, but do all the above on yahoo.

Yahoo and Google both have more than just search engine pages. They have pages for news, finance, etc, assume it means this.

Not to mention that Yahoo has a robust Fantasy Sports portal.

And fantasy football season is gearing up.  Will Yahoo include tumblr figures in future traffic counts?

I never go to Google's home page. I'm always on Gmail and my Chrome browser's search bar doubles as a Google search though. But I never go to www.Google.com, so are they counting that against Google?

tumblr's apparently a separate number, but stuff like Flicker is bundled with Yahoo as a whole.

Not sure it's a non-techie thing, but a mainstream thing, they have info on a wide range of things. I go to a Yahoo page multiple times a day, not because its the best site particularly, but because it covers a lot of sources. I often find Google's equivalent sites also have a lot of info, but often seem like their info is less relevant, as if a search engine displayed the info because a keyword was used more than it actually being relevant.

This is a good point.  Ditto for me.  But it says searches are not included so not sure why this would be.

That probably doesn't mean www.google.com doesn't count, but search results don't count. If you do your Google searches through your browsers search interface, it probably doesn't count.

that would be ironic if google's search numbers dropped due to their in browser searching through Chrome.
