Who loves an economic crisis? Yahoo Finance

Sites with financial news and data saw record numbers of visitors in September, according to ComScore. Just wait for the October tally.

Apparently there's nothing like a crisis to get people to check financial Web sites.

Yahoo is falling victim to the current economic woes, with analysts lowering forecasts for the company's financial future and layoffs in the works . But one part of the company is all but chortling with glee: Yahoo Finance.

According to ComScore's latest statistics, Yahoo is king of the heap, with 19.9 million unique users in the month of September, an all-time high for the site, according to Yahoo. I'm guessing that's going to look small once we see the October statistics, too.

Nowhere in the top 10 is Google Finance. Disclosure: No. 8, though, is BNET, part of CBS Interactive, which operates CNET News.
