Guess who just overtook Google as news sites’ top referrer?

A surprising source has surpassed Google Inc. as the top traffic generator for news sites, according to the latest data from a Web analytics firm. The Silicon Valley Business Journal reports that Facebook Inc. now steers more readers to news sites, driving 40 percent of the traffic compared with Google’s 38 percent in the May-July data. The trend started in October but has picked up momentum. In fact, as recently as the spring of 2012, Facebook accounted for just 10 percent.
