Google and Yahoo Drop in Search Engine Market Share
Monday, July 16, 2007
The latest comscore report on search engine market share was released on Monday for June of 2006. An interesting report in that both Google and Yahoo dropped in market share while MSN of all engines gained in market share.

According to the report, despite declining in search market share in June, both Google Sites and Yahoo! Sites enjoyed increases in search query volume.

I tried a search engine comparison in Google Trends, but there was no data past February of this year. Looking at Google Trends data from June 2006, it's interesting to see that yahoo.com and even ask.com were outperforming Google. (This could be a glitch with Google Trends, but if the dat is somewhat accurate this means that search users perform more queries for Yahoo.com and ask.com as opposed to Google.)
