[1:00 PM] Apple's Web Site Beats All Other PC Sites For Third Week In A Row
by Staff

For the third week in a row, Apple has trounced all other PC sites to claim the #1 spot in PC Data's Top 10 Hardware Site Rankings for the week ending 2/26/2000. Apple also saw a big rise in traffic for the week of 135,000 unique visitors to a total of 1,096,000 unique visitors. While Apple spanked the PC manufacturing sites, the company faced a new challenger in the form of Egghead.com, the online retailer. Egghead.com also received 1,096,000 unique visitors, though PC Data ranked them as #2. The rest of the Top 10 was comprised of the usual suspects jockeying for position. The top 4 positions all saw overall increases in terms of percent of Audience reached and raw numbers. Most of the remaining 6 positions saw slight decreases in overall traffic. The exception being Outpost.com which saw a 50.5% increase from 265,000 unique visitors to 399,000.

The Mac Observer Spin: Egghead.com has been running a high dollar TV campaign for the last 4 weeks or so. Apparently this is paying off for them. In the meanwhile, Apple is certainly consolidating their hold on their own traffic. As we have said in our other reports, this is a direct reflection on the success of Apple's new iTools.
