Despite the large financial problems that Yahoo! is having, apparently, some things are moving in the correct direction. In a recently published ranking list by comScore, the unique visitors to Yahoo! websites have grown substantially making Yahoo! now the most visited website in the USA.

In July 2013, Yahoo! managed to attract 196,564,000 unique visitors and the second position was held by Google which attracted 192,251,000 visitors. Yahoo! therefore won by only a small margin, but the results definitely show that Yahoo!, despite its financial problems, is still very much alive and a strong competitor.
