MySpace has bigger traffic than Google?

From a recent Media Metrix stats report, Google has apparently been “out viewed” by MySpace, 3 to 2.

Yahoo! – 43,700 MM
Time Warner – 31,600 MM (AOL is roughly 70% of this)
Microsoft – 21,800 MM (includes MSN)
eBay – 10,900 MM
MySpace – 9,600 MM
Google – 6,300 MM


Not sure what MM stands for but it could be Millions of pageviews per month. Portals like Yahoo!, Time Warner (AOL), and Microsoft made it to the top 3. eBay came in fourth with MySpace, 5th, followed on sixth spot by Google.

Found the story here via a link here. Om Malik talks a little more about it here from Techdirt. Rupert Murdock recently bought MySpace for a bargain price of $583 Million.

    Alexa has had similar stats for quite some time.

    SEs weren’t meant to be sticky. Being a search engine, Google’s bound to lose to the more sticky sites out there. You go in, do a search, then click on the listing that interests you, which will effectively take you out of Google.

    I don’t think Google’s losing sleep over this development :)

    But considering that Google is used as the default homepage of a lot of browsers nowadays, the numbers are still interesting.
