New Trends In Online Traffic

Comscore numbers reported in Washington Post

Note especially that MySpace pulled 37 million visitors last month, 28 million more than a year ago. That gave it a ranking of No. 10 among all sites in the United States, according to ComScore. If you look at usage data (page views and time spent per visitor) MySpace ranked No. 2 on the entire Internet, right behind Yahoo!.
