ComScoreComScore has released its monthly analysis results for search market share in the U.S. Blowing absolutely nobody’s mind is the fact that Google is on top.

The question is not who is on top, but by how much Google leads. Google sites had 69.1% of the market, while Yahoo! followed at a not-so-close second with 20.5%. The gap between the two has grown since June, when Google and Yahoo! controlled 61.5% and 20.9% respectively.

In  research like that of ComScore’s, the information should not be taken as gospel. As PCWorld points out:


ComScore’s reports are not controversy-free. The company was criticized in April for a report on paid search clicks, as ComScore’s measurements rely mainly on online recruitment techniques, usually dismissed by traditional pollsters. The search market share report presented yesterday relies on a similar panel with ComScore’s controversial one from April…

That said, it doesn’t look like Google has any threat to its search market share, and with their current push into the mobile sector, it is doubtful that any such threat will emerge in the foreseeable future.

    That’s quite a significant increase in the gap between Yahoo and Google. Yahoo really should have accepted Microsoft’s offer – at this rate both companies will continue to be further marginalized in search. In the UK Google has over 90% share of the market – it’ll be interesting to see if Google can get near that figure in the US in the next couple of years.

    Companies like yahoo and microsoft almost missed the boat.  People got used to Google and now its hard to make them use any other SE, unless Yahoo or MSN comes out with some outstanding features in their Search.

    Its the relevance of the results and not features which makes Google the king of the hill. The only way it can be pushed from that spot is if some other engine gives more timely and relevant results which seems highly unlikely at the moment.
