Facebook beats Google for visitors

Facebook beats Google for visitors

The “important milestone,” as described by Hitwise director of research Heather Dougherty, came as Facebook enjoyed a massive 185 per cent increase in visits in the same period, compared to the same week in 2009. By comparison, visits to search engine home Google.com increased only nine per cent-although the tracker does not include  sites such as the popular Gmail email service, YouTube and Google Maps.Taken together, Face book.com and Google.com amounted to 14 per cent of the entire US internet visits last week, Dougherty said.
