Where the (online) growth is

Domains that showed more than 100 percent growth in unique visitors from February 2005 to February 2006: myspace.com (no surprise there), wikipedia.org, blogger.com, and citysearch.com (huh?! Who uses that?). Source: Chart at washingtonpost.com, derived from comScore Media Metrix data. Out of 50 domains listed, only those four doubled (or better) their visitor total in that 12-month period.

However, Yahoo! (at No. 1), with 115.4 million unique visitors, still has three times the number of visitors that Myspace has (37.3 million) — and most of Blogger’s 15 million may just be reading their own blogs.

With 21 percent growth in the period, Google (now with 92 million visitors) continues to gain on Yahoo!, which added 5 million visitors in the period — while Google grew by 16 million.

The Post also ran a story about these data.

Side note: apple.com is up 48 percent (to 17.5 million), no doubt due to iTunes Music Store downloads; microsoft.com slipped by 10 percent, to 55.8 million); adobe.com lost 7 percent (finishing at 12.9 million).
