Google Holds Steady as Top Performer, but is Down Year Over Year
Google held its position as did the other major search engines Yahoo! and Bing. The Chinese search engine Baidu saw a gain of ~1%. Stats provided by Net Market Share.
Google has made a recovery from its February 2012 slump and remains comfortably ahead of the pack at ~79% desktop search engine market share.
Yahoo! is up over 1% since its yearly low of 5.55% in December 2011, but still remains a distant second behind Google.
Bing seems to hover around the 4% mark each month. They’re up 0.69% since last year but continue to trail Yahoo! and of course, Google.
Chinese search engine Baidu continues to carve a chunk out of worldwide search engine market share as the country’s online population expands.
