It was a fluke of the Web, but Seattle-based Fisher Communications’ Web site was the fastest-growing Web site in the country last month, according to a new report from comScore.
Fisher’s KOMO-TV ran a segment on inflammatory breast cancer that ricocheted around the Web, pushed in part by a chain email, attracting 5.3 million users. That gave Fisher’s site a 559 percent gain during the month.
Gay and lesbian sites and online gambling sites also surged last month, growing 16 percent and 13 percent respectively, making them the highest gaining Web site categories.
The top six Web properties in the U.S. were, in the following order: Yahoo!, Time Warner, Microsoft, Google, eBay and MySpace.com.
