Hell has frozen over, and pigs are flying. MySpace, the bastardization of good web design was the #1 most trafficked website last week.
[It displaced] Yahoo Inc.’s top-rated e-mail gateway and Google Inc.’s search site, Internet tracking firm Hitwise said on Tuesday.
News Corp.’s MySpace accounted for 4.46 percent of all U.S. Internet visits for the week ending July 8, pushing it past Yahoo Mail for the first time and outpacing the home pages for Yahoo, Google and Microsoft’s MSN Hotmail.
Who would have ever thought that MySpace would overtake Google. Guess the Google folks are pretty miffed at this situation, considering they could have bought MySpace for half of what Fox paid. Instead they have Google Pages, and we all know how popular that is.
