Search Engine Market Share July 2013

Google Lowest Search Share Dominance of the Year

August marks Google’s lowest search share dominance in the last 12 months. In August 2012, Google was about 14% high in search shares.

Yahoo Down by Two

Over the past six months Yahoo has been holding around eight per cent of search engine market shares. Bing’s sudden increase has begun to effect its rank.

Same Ol’ Bing

Regardless of other search engines fluctuating in shares Bing is staying steady month over month in the five per cent range.

Baidu Goes Mobile

Chinese search engine, Baidu finally made the transition into mobile. This most likely is contributing to its massive spike in search market share for August. Do you think this is fluke or will Baidu going mobile change the playing field?
