Its growth was also a stunning 44% year on year, compared to Google, which saw its visits drop by 2.5% over the same period.
Google has been facing challenges recently, with Facebook ready to bump it from the top visited site very soon, and the company missing analysts forecast for earnings growth, leading to questions of the company has in fact peaked.
