I admit I never even think about AOL as a player in online news search. But I guess I should. MarketingVox reports:
AOL News has sprinted into a leading position in online news search, joining Yahoo News, Google News and Topix.net, writes SearchEngineWatch, citing July Nielsen/NetRatings data, according to which AOL News has a unique audience of 16.5 million. Though that’s some 29 percent less than for Yahoo News (23.2 million), it’s also more than 2.4 times more than the audience of Google News (6.8 million) and almost 6.8 times that of Topix.net (2.4 million).
