Google continues to update in order to dominate, if Google steps off the radar for a moment Yahoo! and Bing will be right there to pick up their slack while Baidu’s inconsistency has left some room for the other search engines to gain back market share this month. Statistics provided by Net Market Share.
Up almost 1% from last month, Google is gaining back some lost share dominance from early in the year. Possibly Google’s new search feature the Knowledge Graph will boost them back to last year’s standings.
Yahoo! is still the second highest market share next to Google; however, will Yahoo!’s new CEO Marissa Mayer (former Google executive) change their algorithm for the best? Keep your eyes on Yahoo!
Slowly but surely, Bing is consistently increasing its shares. Currently at 4.81%, it is quite possible to see Bing owning 5% of shares by next month.
The leading chinese search engine Baidu continues to play snakes and ladders on the market share board. With 4.44% of shares, Baidu hits its lowest rank for the past 5 months.
