Google Holds On To Search Share

Figures from analysis firm Hitwise showed Google did not lose any more ground in search. The company still shows it dominates the search landscape when it comes to people looking for information.

This table, courtesy of Hitwise, shows the breakdown for US search market share:

Domain Jan.-08 Dec.-07 Jan.-07 65.98% 65.98% 63.06% 20.94% 20.88% 21.40% 6.90%* 7.04%* 10.35%* 4.21% 4.14% 3.54%

Results for Microsoft include searches conducted on as well as MSN Search. Their decline makes it obvious why they want Yahoo: they may not gain that kind of share with the search business as it is today.
