On the day after the 2010 Oscars telecast, Yahoo! Movies attracted more than 11 million unique visitors to its site, generating more than 590 million pageviews. Yahoo!’s omg!, the #1 entertainment news destination, recorded more than nine million unique visitors and more than 600 million pageviews on the day after the 2010 Golden Globes telecast.

According to YahooBlogThe top states searching for “Oscars” on Yahoo! are California, Illinois, Texas, Washington and New Jersey. Currently, “Black Swan” is the top searched-for nominated film, followed by “True Grit” and “127 Hours.”

While searches for the award show are split evenly between men and women, searchers definitely skew older. Only 16% of searches for “Oscars” were made by the under-24 demographic. No wonder  The Academy decided to bring in twenty-something hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco.

A recent Yahoo! study revealed that the highest peaks in traffic and engagement on the Yahoo! Mobile site occurred immediately after the 2010 Oscars show ended on TV. Clearly, more and more users turn to the Web once they tune out from the TV.

What MySpace Dwindling Traffic Numbers Means

Monthly traffic stats don’t necessarily show the overall direction of web companies, but we’re seeing a pattern when it comes to Facebook and its most serious competitors, MySpace and Twitter.

Certainly, new efforts by the latter two sites could change things in the coming months — like MySpace’s music features, or Twitter’s new lists and retweet features. For October, though, the big three data firms, Compete, comScore and Quantcast, are all in agreement, and the pattern is the same one we’ve seen in recent months. The pattern shows very consistently that traffic to MySpace has been declining.

Very clearly Myspace has a lot to do to arrest its declining traffic. When users stop coming to your site it generally means  many things, however the most of the  two important  things often mean ... your competitors have done something  which is taking users to them , or you have screwed up your site.. in a big away .. and if this trend is happening for a long time , for big companies  it generally again mean two things , you sell out . or you shut down ... No guesses for what Myspace is going to do ..
