Compete.com gives us a new metric for measuring websites- attention. The Compete Attention 200 is a list of the top 200 websites for length of visits.
MySpace, YouTube, eBay- I understand how people spend a long amount of time on these sites, but what are people doing on paypal that takes so long?
Realtor.com is the only real estate site on the list at #66- most of that time is spent trying to figure out how to find the addresses of properties and/or contact info for the listing agents, which, of course, doesn’t appear unless the agents pay for it- and obviously most don’t.
