While Google easily hung onto its first-place spot in the US search engine market last month, Yahoo made a surprising, if slight, advance, reports Computerworld.com.
Google, long the heavily dominant player in the search market, captured 65.8% of the market in July, according to comScore, a market research company. However, the search engine giant slipped a little last month, dipping 0.4% from 66.2% in June.
Where did that 0.4% share go? Google can look to Yahoo for that.
The second-place search engine grabbed Google’s lost share and took its U.S. search share from 16.7% in June to 17.1% in July.
Microsoft Bing has been steadily in third place since it was released a little more than a year ago, and it retains that spot with an 11% share – the same amount it had in June.
