NEW YORK (AP) — For the first time in more than two years, more Americans visited Yahoo’s websites than Google’s in July, according to data from research firm comScore Inc.

ComScore said Wednesday that Yahoo Inc.’s websites saw 196.6 million unique U.S. visitors last month, while Google’s sites had 192.3 million.

The last time Yahoo was ahead of Google was in May 2011, according to comScore.

That said, Yahoo is still far behind Google in making money from the people who visit its websites. After stripping out ad commissions, Yahoo’s revenue came to $1.07 billion in the April-June quarter. Google’s, meanwhile, was $11.1 billion by the same measure.
