April Search Market Share Report

If you think Microsoft’s Bing wasn’t impacting the search engine market, then you are wrong. According to Compete, Google increased its share for the first time since December 2011 to 65.9% of the US core web search market.  Yahoo! had been experiencing small increases in share steadily since December 2011, but saw a decline of 0.7ppt’s from March to April.  Bing continues to gain monthly share since October 2011, and experienced a gain of 0.3ppt’s in April to represent 18.3% of the market.

Google Powered engines now represent 2/3rd of the US search market, while Bing Powered engines represent the other 1/3rd.  AOL remained flat this month, staying at 0.8% of the market.  The overall search market – as defined by these 4 engines – saw a slight increase in total query volume, also a reverse in recent month’s trends.  This is the first increase in query activity since December 2011.
