So what was the most popular U.S. website last month? Not Google (sort of).
Turns out that Yahoo had the most unique monthly visitors in July, beating even the search king. And that didn't even include numbers for Yahoo's newly acquired Tumblr blogging site, which came in 28th place on rankings from comScore.
Yahoo had 196.6 million monthly uniques versus Google's 192.3 million for Google. However, the numbers do not include mobile usage and visitors are only counted once in a month, no matter how many times they return to the site.

Ed Barton, director of digital media at technology consulting firm Strategy Analytics, said the numbers were "incredible" and a "pretty strong endorsement" for Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer.
"No online media outlet would have come close to predicting this, and if they had, you would have said they were insane," said Barton. "This will probably have a positive impact on the share price and if Yahoo keeps this up, it has a chance of becoming relevant again."
