Microsoft, Says Microsoft, Beats Google in Worldwide Web Use
November 7, 2009
You will want to read “Microsoft Tops Google, Yahoo, Facebook in Worldwide Web Use”. I assume the data in the write up are accurate. I was surprised, but what’s new? The Seattle PI write up offered several nuggets of information I found interesting:
- “Windows Live Messenger led Microsoft’s Web properties in capturing 14.5 percent of total time spent online in September worldwide”
- “Windows Live Messenger accounted for nearly 70 percent of the 3.9 billion hours people spent on Microsoft Web properties”
- Time spent on Microsoft properties rose 43 percent between September 2008 and September 2009.
Google, Facebook, and Yahoo may be spending their weekend wondering what options are available to them. Microsoft, it appears, is the giant among pygmies. One source for data was comScore.

No money changed hands for this item. To whom do I report. Ah, the Federal Highway Administration?
