Hitwise’s latest numbers indicate that Google, already the clear leader among search engines in the US, is still growing at a pretty healthy rate.
Hitwise search engine market share

All the other major search engines have declined in the last year. Google, on the other hand, now drives 64% of US searches—10% growth over last year.

I like the statement that Search Engine Journal quotes after the chart:

Yahoo! Search, MSN Search ( and each received 22, 9 and 3 percent respectively. The remaining 48 search engines in the Hitwise Search Engine Analysis Tool accounted for 5 percent of U.S. searches.

So, not only did Google grow 10% over last year’s numbers, but now we’re measuring 103% of all searches performed. Cool.

  • US search engine market is looking more and more like the european one. In France, Google owns 87% of search marketshare on last stats (Xiti, march 07), in UK, it’s more then 76% (Hitwise, feb 06)…

  • The bottom line is .. Google just works! Whenever I try one of the other engines (sometimes by accident: like when you buy a new computer), I always have to switch back to find what I’m looking for.

    You can hardly call it a level playing field. It’s a market where one product works and the others don’t.

  • What are we going to do, round down?

    Always giving 103%, Loren 🙂

    No, no, of course not. You’re just quoting the source. I see that that’s not perfectly clear; I’ll adjust that.

    Yep, Google still growing while other search engines slid. No matter what, Google actually rocks.
