Google’s share of the search market hit an all-time high in June.
According to statistics released by ComScore, 66.8 per cent of desktop web searches were made using Google last month, beating Google’s own previous record share of 66.7 per cent.
This proves, as if there was any doubt, that Google is the search engine that those in SEO should be concentrating on.
Microsoft staff could be celebrating the fact that Bing also nabbed their highest proportion of the search market in June. Bing was responsible for 15.6 per cent of desktop searches in June, up from 15.4 per cent in May.
Thenextweb.com report that Bing’s market share has now either risen or remained steady for the past 26 months. This slow but steady growth has surely cemented its reputation as a viable alternative to Google.
According to statistics cited by searchengineland.com, the rise of Google and Bing can be attributed to the ongoing decline of Yahoo! Their share of the search market is now at 13 per cent. It has dropped for 10 straight months including a decline from 13.4 per cent in May.
The amount of people using search engines in June slightly dropped when compared to May.
