The WSJ reports that Google has hit an internet first: one billion unique visitors in a month’s time. The number comes from comScore data released earlier today, citing that the visitors came in the month of May. While on its way to one billion unique visitors, Google saw a 8.4% increase over April month. Microsoft is trailing behind with a close second of 905 million unique visitors a month.

That’s about one seventh of the world’s population visiting Google.com last month.  Considering the difficulties Google is having trying to reach the 1.4B people in China, the news is no small feat.
