Yahoo beats Google in traffic

In an earnings call last month, Mayer noted that Yahoo page views were rising after more than a year of declines, citing recently refreshed versions of Yahoo mail, weather, sports, news and Tumblr, both on desktop and mobile.

The revamped Yahoo mail app for tablets, for instance, brought a 120% increase in daily active Yahoo mail users, according to the company.

Mayer has repeatedly said that she wants the company to focus on consumers’ “daily habits” in order to make products that will become a part of users’ routines.

Yahoo’s stock was down slightly Wednesday, but is up more than 80% from a year ago.via Yahoo beats Google in traffic
