London—ComScore Networks, an Internet measurement and ratings provider, released the first in a series of monthly rankings of top European Internet properties this week, based on data collected both at home and in the workplace through its World Metrix audience rating service.
Google was the No. 1 European online property in July, attracting 156.3 million unique visitors. Microsoft came in second with 144.1 million visitors, and Yahoo! had 99.5 million visitors. EBay and Time Warner Network filled out the top five positions.
The data exclude traffic from public computers—those in cafes, for example—and traffic from individuals accessing the Web through mobile phones and PDAs.
