Internet Marketing May 4th, 2009
April’s search engine market share results are in. For a 2nd month in a row, both Google and Yahoo! The only search engine to improve its performance in April 2009 was LIVE
After a relatively bad year in 2008 which saw a decrease of almost a full percentage point, it appears that Live is once again gaining some momentum. This month also saw the biggest improvement from month to month with growth of .40%.
While still an improvement of more than 3% since April 2008, this is the first time we have seen a 2 month drop for big G. We would expect this trend to correct itself as mobile browsing continues to grow. (something Google has already cornered the market in!)
Think executives at Yahoo! are concerned about a 2.63% drop since April 2008? You would think that with the attention being placed on other web properties by Yahoo!, that search would begin improving at some point. This is not the case.
