A new report out from comScore says that last month for the first time in more than two years, Yahoo managed to best Google in terms of overall monthly traffic. Yahoo was able to coax in 196.6 million unique monthly visitors during the month of July, while Google only managed to attract 192.3 million unique visitors.

Interestingly enough, these numbers did not include traffic from Yahoo's newly acquired social network Tumblr, which sees more than 38 million unique visitors every month. If these numbers were included, it would put Yahoo far ahead of Google in overall web traffic. However, the report did not include mobile traffic either, and with Google's Android being the dominant mobile OS, we're sure that Google would have topped Yahoo if the mobile numbers were included.
