Chart: Google leads pack of the top 50 Web sites in the U.S.


Google remains the king of the hill when it comes to attracting visitors. The search engine attracted 189 million visitors during the month of June, well ahead of second place finisher Yahoo with 167 million, according to a report out from comScore Media Metrix. Microsoft finished third at 166 million, but Facebook is close on its heels at 160 million.

Amazon.com has crested the 100 million unique visitor count, but it still ranks behind AOL, which finished fifth.

In terms of categories, comScore found that the travel niche (ground/cruise) saw a nine percent increase in traffic from May to June. Travel (hotels/resorts) was up eight percent, while gaming sites saw an increase of five percent.

Several retail categories, including tickets, toys a sports/outdoors, also saw five percent gains.

    A few things that I noticed off the bat:
    1) AOL is still a top-visited property: I can’t believe AOL is still as highly-trafficked a portal as its results show.
    2) MySpace is still a Top 50-visited site: Although FB is clearly the social networking leader, I can’t believe that there’s still that much activity on MySpace.
    3) Media properties way outnumber commerce sites: I wonder what’s the market size for monetized media?
    4) BitTorrent is Top 50: Lots of pirates out there.
