Hitwise: Google Tops In May

New stats now posted from Hitwise show Google has the highest
share of visits by US web surfers of all search and directory sites that Hitwise tracked in May 2005.

It’s never good to depend too much on month-to-month changes, as I’ve written before. Nevertheless, both
Yahoo and MSN will take heart that the rankings are virtually unchanged from April 2005. Here’s a comparison:
