NEW YORK — For the first time in more than two years, more Americans visited Yahoo’s Web sites than Google’s, according to comScore Inc.’s Internet traffic data for July.
The research firm said Yahoo Inc.’s Web sites saw 196.6 million unique U.S. visitors last month, while Google’s sites had 192.3 million. The last time Yahoo was ahead of Google was in May, 2011, according to comScore.
That said, Yahoo is still far behind Google in making money from the people who visit its Web sites. After stripping out advertising commissions, Yahoo’s revenue came to $1.07 billion in the April-June quarter. Google’s, meanwhile, was $11.1 billion.
