Manny Pacquiao has just scored an impressive victory by stopping Miguel in the final round of their 12 round championship fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. So just how hot of a night was it for Pacquiao and the sport? One way to gauge the popularity is to check the homepage of Yahoo.com.
Moments after Pacquiao's dominating performance over Cotto, the web was on fire. Just moments after the fight the feature story on Yahoo's homepage was on the Pacquiao vs Cotto fight out come. (See pic from Yahoo on this page).
In order to make it as the feature on yahoo's homepage, it has to be a super hot topic. Yahoo's homepage is the most trafficked page on the net, making it the best piece of real-estate the net offers. . Don't just take my word for it, check Quantcast.com and Alexa.com (independent traffic research sites) and see Yahoo's number one rank for yourself. Yahoo uses their own research from their popular web search engine to compile the stats for what story deserves to be the feature. Unless you control all the computers and searches in the world... there is no way to cheat Yahoo's system.
People are turning to Yahoo in mass numbers to find out as much as they can on Pacquiao's latest victory. No doubt about it, Pacquiao and Boxing is the hottest topic on the net tonight and Yahoo is certifying it.
Its another hot night for a sport that seems to only be getting more popular with each decent PPV this year. Manny Pacquiao and boxing certainly deserve a giant "Yahoo!" tonight.
