Yahoo monthly traffic surpasses 800 million users

Yahoo chief executive Marissa Mayer said the internet company now has more than 800 million monthly active users, which she said represented 20 per cent growth.

Speaking at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco overnight, Mayer said the 800 million users did not include traffic from Tumblr, the online blog and social media hub that it acquired earlier this year.
