(GOOG) - Get Alphabet Inc. Report

192.3 million visitors in the month of July. The jump represents a 20% increase in Yahoo!'s unique visitors.

The visitors for


, which Yahoo! recently acquired, were tallied separately from Yahoo!. However, Google's YouTube visitors were counted as visits to Google, Borchardt said.

She added that CEO Marissa Mayer's focus on returning the company to its roots by making the site something users must visit daily seems to be working. The company has already refreshed its mail, weather, sports and news segments, and will focus on finance next, Borchardt said.

Although the traffic is up, the stock has been in a bit of slump over the past month, but is still up 80% over the last year, she said.
