Internet Marketing April 8th, 2009
This Search Engine Market share for March 2009 is interesting. The only search engines to gather more momentum were LIVE and ASK. All of the others continued the usual downward trend except for Google who made their very first down month in quite some time.
How big will ‘Live’ get? Well since February 2007 the market share has gone from 1.44% to 2.08%. Not really a huge jump but the rise has been about as continuous as the drop we have watched with Yahoo! during the same period. The growth from February to March is one of the biggest jumps they have had to date.
Even the big ones have bad months. Well let’s face it, when you own 80+% of the market it really isn’t ever a bad month! Still, we did see a decline for the first time in a long time. Is there a ceiling for the market share that Google can hold?
