The November Comscore numbers show the inevitable: Fox Interactive (mostly MySpace) now has more page views than the combined Yahoo sites, taking the no. 1 spot for the first time. This was less to do with MySpace growth than with a 9% dip in overall Yahoo traffic (total Internet traffic for all sites in November dipped just 3%; Google was up 5%).
Yahoo still dominates in total unique vistors, though, with over twice as many people visiting Yahoo sites as MySpace. The end game isn’t page views, its user attention and, ultimately, revenue. Still, MySpace has every reason to pop the champagne today and celebrate their 200% growth in page views over the last twelve months.
One or two quick acquisitions, of course, would put Yahoo right back in the no. 1 spot.
