January 2012 Search Engine Market Share

Search Engine Market Share Levels Out

Last month’s blip on the radar that saw Baidu jump significantly seems to have levelled off with the Chinese search engine claiming 5.73% of overall search engine market share. Google regained its above 80% position, while Yahoo! and Bing held steady at approximately 6% and 4% respectively. Stats were provided by Net Market Share.

Google Makes Month Over Month Gains, but Declines Year Over Year

Last month we saw Google bounce back to typical levels in and around the low 80% range. Overall the search giant dropped just over 2% vs. one year ago.

Yahoo! Drops for the Fourth Straight Month in a Row

Yahoo! held its position as the number 2 search engine in the world despite a steady four month decline. Yahoo! beat out Baidu by less than 0.1%

Bing Grows Marginally Year Over Year

Microsoft’s Bing search engine made a modest gain of 0.12% since last year. That’s still down from its October high of 4.26% high seen in October 2011.

Baidu’s Numbers Snap Back to Reality

Since last month’s statistical blip Baidu fell to 5.73% total search engine market share. That’s up 2.73% since January 2011.
