Internet Marketing December 7th, 2012
The past two months have been pretty steady for the leading search engines. Could this be the calm before the storm?! With 2013 just around the corner, I’m sure they all have some tricks up their sleeves. Google is the only search engine to drop shares and Yahoo! and Bing barely budget, while Baidu raises almost the exact amount Google lost. Statistics provided Net Market Share.
Google is almost even with last year’s shares and with the competition rising. However, Google is the only search engine to drop shares in the past two months.
Yahoo! barely budgets this month, the tiny drop in their market share doesn’t compare to the $2.7 billion contractual dispute against the corporation.
Bing is still bouncing around 4% range for market share but they might be putting their energy elsewhere. If you can’t beat them, start a campaign against them. That’s exactly what Bing did, launched a “Don’t Get Scroogle” campaign against Google Shopping.
After 5 months of consecutively dropping shares, the Chinese search engine, Baidu looks upward and makes the “largest” decimal gain this month. Don’t look back Baidu!
