Yahoo! is top of the Web 100

Latest data throws up few surprises

PC Data has published its listing for the top 100 Web properties and sites for May 1999 and Yahoo! tops both categories. The Virginia-based company tracks the number of "unique visitors" who either go to a Web site or a Web property -- defined as a network of related sites. Every visitor is counted only once, regardless of how many times the individual visits a site. Here, The Register prints the top 10 in each category.
