If we analyze the traffic trend in last three months, we can see that Google has bagged the second position in the Alexa ranking, by pushing MSN to third place. Yahoo is still holding its first position in Alexa ranking, without being hampered by the online cold war.
You can refer the image below, comparing the traffic ranks of MSN.com, Google.com, Yahoo.com and Live.com
If we look at the traffic trends, we can also see that Live.com is improving its ranking day by day. So, that means Microsoft is pushing Live.com more to conquer the online presence at the cost of MSN.com. If we see the reach of Yahoo.com in last three months, it is around 26.82%. And the reach of Google.com is 24.58%. Similarly for MSN.com is 22.78% and for Live.com it is 18.44%. So, once Microsoft transfers all its online services to Live.com, it would reach around 40%. That means we can expect, Live.com to be in the first position of Alexa ranking in the near future.
