Google Top Referral Site for Clinton, Paul in May

Presidential contenders, Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Ron Paul came out on top among major party presidential candidates when it came to traffic to their official campaign sites in May, according to Hitwise. The site measurement firm just sent me some supplemental data showing the top five referral sites driving that traffic for each.

Both candidates’ sites have four referral sites in common, Google, MySpace, Yahoo Search, Yahoo Mail. Yep, Google comes out on top, driving nearly 20 percent of traffic to those sites. Check out the rest here, part of ClickZ’s ongoing election data coverage.
