The top spot among American financial sites has become more of a two-horse race each month. In February AOL Money has 83.1 million visits and Yahoo! Finance weighed in with 81.1 million. MSN Money was in the No.3 spot with 50.9 million according to comScore
Fox Business continued its online assault against CNBC. For the month, Fox had 1.44 million visitors to CNBC’s 1.9 million.
The new website launched by TheStreet.com, Mainstreet, made its debut in the rating with just over 1.3 million visitors. TheStreet itself had 4.7 million, keeping it well ahead of BusinessWeek online and The Motley Fool
Google Finance remains the great mystery on the list. It visits jumped to 6.6 million, well above the 3.4 million it posted in January. The site did not seem to change anything so perhaps investors are being drawn to its odd combination of interactive charts and Google News.
