Bing’s search market share in the U.S. grew by just 0.23 percent in August to 9.64 percent, the slowest monthly growth rate since its launch, according to a report by StatCounter.

The report also found that Bing and Yahoo combined declined a small amount in August to 20.14 percent from 20.36 percent in July.

"Perhaps a little worrying for Microsoft is that when you analyze the weekly data, Bing peaked for the week 10th – 16th August at 10.98% and has declined since then," said Aodhan Cullen, CEO, StatCounter.

Google increased its search market share slightly in the US in August from 77.54 percent to 77.83 percent.

Data is based on an analysis of 1.073 billion search engine referring clicks (272 million from the U.S.) which were collected in July and August from the StatCounter network of over three million websites.

    I think that’s a natural regression, most were very curious at first, just like that new restaurant that opens up in your city…very busy at first as everyone wants to try the newest thing, then it tends to decline, before finally sustaining it’s market share.

    We’re seeing it in our logs, too. A little bump, last month, but now nearing flatline.
