Google is once again on the move

2006 appears to be a banner year for Google. It purchased the highly popular YouTube online video site in early October and saw its stock price dance with the $500 mark in November. Now according to ComScore Networks Inc., Google Inc. has slightly edged in front of Yahoo! Inc. to become the second most visited website for the month of November.

ComScore's figures show that Google's site traffic rose by 9.1% to 475.7 million visitors while Yahoo's traffic rose just 5.2% bringing its tally to 475.3 million visitors. Microsoft still held on to a 26 million visitor advantage at 501.7 million.

News Corp.'s Fox Interactive Media sites also saw a significant increase in traffic thanks to the booming popularity of MySpace.com. Traffic for the company rose to a healthy 130.4 million visitors.

YouTube, Google’s recent acquisition, saw its visitors rise 24-fold to 107.9 million.

Where do we expect to be sent? How about:

IE homepage - The most popular search engine by user choice.

Report Problems/More Info - A HTML page installed with Windows that apologizes for making us click away the problem MS isn't spending enough time to fix instead of spending that time restricting EULAs and stripping features out of Vista.

The implication is obvious, these are places we choose NOT to go to, but it's thrust upon us. Nothing like paying for what someone else wants you to have, is there?
