I can remember the day it was announced that Google had 40% of all US searches. It was such a big deal, it was all anyone would talk about. Of course quite a bit has changed since then and that includes the introduction of BING. According to a recent story at CNET, Google now controls about 65% of all US web searches, with Bing coming in about 30% and Yahoo at about 15%.
So Google is more than twice as good as Bing and Bing is about twice as good as Yahoo.
Google, obviously the power house giant has actually been on a gradual decline. In December of 2010 they controlled 69.7%, the next month they dropped to 68%, then in February 66.7% and now in March they are coming in at 64.4%. Sure these aren’t major drops but possibly a sign of the big push Bing has been making to gain market share. Bing is gaining market share faster than Google is losing it though. While Google may drop a point here and there, Bing seems to be going up even faster. Sucks to be Yahoo I guess.
Hitwise comes up with these numbers by monitoring the 10 million Internet users from the United States.
