If these werent from Nielson//NetRatings, I wouldnt have believed the numbers. Here are my suprises and observations:
  1. Microsoft gets more hits than Google. Now the microsoft.com site serves a totally different audience than the www.google.com website.
  2. People spend a lot more time on eBay than I had thought. And waaay longer time on MySpace.
  3. It takes about 12 minutes to find directions on Mapquest
  4. People spend more time on MSN than Google.
  5. Real is there in the top 10 list. Maybe people are spending 43 minutes looking for that free Realplayer.
  6. The clear winner above is Yahoo. Both in the number of visitors and the time spent on the site.
  7. AOL primarily (still) serves dialup users and they spend 6 hours online on the AOL site. Hey, if you need to spend 6 hours online, get yourself a broadband connection and ditch AOL.
Check out the above PDF report on some interesting numbers on the top ad spenders.
