While it's no surprise that Google's search engine landed in the No.1 spot on Compete's top 50 list for January 2010, take a look at where other engines landed. Yahoo took No. 3, Bing came in at No. 11, and Ask took No. 16.
The list also provides unique visitors for the month. Compete explains that the top five fastest growing Web sites in January were tax-related, while five of the top 20 high-growth sites were dedicated to travel. In aggregate, the top travel sites attracted more than 21 million unique visitors, while the tax and accounting category saw more than 29.6 million UVs.
