NEW YORK (AP) - Retail Web sites have been trying to keep up the strong sales pace that began on the weekend after Thanksgiving.

This is the day that the industry pitches as "Cyber Monday," and Web sites have been offering deals aimed at attracting holiday shoppers.

A California company that's tracking the sales, Coremetrics, says that as of early this afternoon, sales for the day were running about 20 percent ahead of last year.

The Internet only accounts for about 10 percent of holiday shopping, but it's still seen most of the growth so far this year.

Amazon.com today has been discounting the 8-gigabyte Apple iPod Touch for $158, which is $20 less than Sunday and $40 off the retail price. Target.com offered $63 off on a GPS system. And a lot of sites are offering free shipping.
