Yahoo No. 1 In U.S. Web Traffic

For the first time in more than two years, Yahoo topped Google in U.S. Web traffic in July, according to comScore. The last time Yahoo beat out Google in that category was May 2011.

Yahoo's collection of sites generated 196.6 million unique visitors in July compared with 192.3 million for Google sites. Another good sign for Yahoo? The numbers don't include traffic for Tumblr, according to The Wall Street Journal. Yahoo acquired the social networking site in May for approximately $1.1 billion.

This is also the first time Yahoo topped the rankings under Marissa Mayer, a former Google executive who was named CEO in July 2012.
