A recent survey by comScore Networks showed that Google and Yahoo added marketshare while Ask & MSN loss ground.
Google’s market share is up to 47.4% with a 0.4% increase in December. Yahoo was edging up also.
ComScore Networks survey shows that Microsoft Search slid 0.5% to 10.5% of Web search and Ask.com slid 0.5% to 5.4%. (This surprises me, I do not know ask was that much market share)
Part of Yahoo’s search market increased by 0,3% to 28,5% in December on issues of November.
Search United States in December rose by 1% compared with November to tune of $ 6.7 million searches.Sportspark40
What does this mean for internet marketers and SEO peeps? Not much. I do not think everyone was surprised to increase Google and get Yahoo. We will keep on designing, coding, and marketing as we know our Google and Yahoo SERPS is more valuable than they grow each month.
These numbers just add to MSN’s Search Engine woes. MSN Live hasn’t been near the success that it was being touted to have.
I’m out on limb here and predict that the main MSN search engine and go to be competitive again. Not that they could start over, but it was like to live there. Google will have to make some big mistakes and MSN to remove the most incredible wonders to compete with Google soon.
I see MSN and Ask.com continue to lose ground in the search market. (for the record though, this does not mean I don’t target MSN on some of my searches…cause I do and will continue to do so…at least for a while)
Now go forth and make some money,
