ComScore’s Ad Focus ranking lists the top ad-focused sites and networks in order of audience size. For March 2007, US home, work, and university locations, drew 153 million unique visitors.

Yahoo was the only non-ad network to place in the Ad Focus top five, with its 129.5 million uniques just edging out ValueClick’s 129.2 million. Casale Media Network and Tribal Fusion rounded out the top five.

"Shifts at the top of our Ad Focus ranking come at an interesting time with Google’s recent announcement that it would be acquiring Doubleclick," Jack Flanagan, executive vice president of comScore Media Metrix, said in a statement.

"As advertising networks continue to compete for online ad dollars, there is sure to be increased attention on which ones are reaching the widest audience."
