Can Yahoo Stage a "Rocky" Comeback?
Compete would like everyone to know that, while Yahoo may be in the middle of a shake-up – they still have more visitors than Google.
Now, if I had the clout of Danny Sullivan*, I’d be able to summon the Bill Tancer genie and see if Hitwise concurs with Compete’s data.
* At SES Danny mentioned that he was able to request data from Bill in his blog, and Bill was kind enough to comply. I’m not even sure Bill reads this blog, so I won’t hold my breath.
Update: OK, so Bill “the Genie” Tancer does read MP, and he magically appeared with some data that appears to contradict the Compete stats (with help from Matt Tatham).
According to Hitwise, if you look at individual domains, MySpace.com comes out ahead of Mail.Yahoo.com. If you look at all properties owned, Yahoo leads the way, but then MySpace and MSN properties are 2nd and 3rd – no sign of Google.
So, for my next wish, I’d like Angelina Jolie to email me next.
