Yahoo Stays The Course

Timothy A. Koogle stepped down as chief executive of Yahoo, but Yahoo itself budged nary an inch from the position it held last month at the top of the Reston, Va.-based PC Data Online Top 100 Web Sites. In fact, all of the top 10 sites for January 2001 repeated their positions for February.

Net-behemoths AOL and MSN were right behind Yahoo in the number 2 and 3 slots, and greeting card sites like bluemountain.com (13) and americangreetingcards.com (20) saw sizable increases in user traffic. At No. 58, with a bullet, irs.gov jumped more than 75 slots, which is good news for the site and, for the rest of us, a sign that April 15th is just around the corner.
