Based on long-term trends it was inevitable... Google.com was going to pass Yahoo.com to become the number one site on the Web. It was just a matter of time. Now it is official:
Google is the #1 Alexa Ranked site on the web.Google will need to keep it up if it is going to surpass Yahoo in the 3 month average rankings, which is the official ranking number shown in our lists.
Here's how it went down:
- October 2007 - Unique Visitors to Google surpasses Yahoo. Yahoo still has the larger number of pageviews by a healthy but shrinking margin.
- January 5, 2009 - Alexa Daily Rank for Google is #1 for the first time.
It kind of makes you want to root for the new underdog, Yahoo!. I, for one, welcome our new Google overlords.
