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.
All the other major search engines have declined in the last year. Google, on the other hand, now drives 64% of US searchesâ€”10% growth over last year.
I like the statement that Search Engine Journal quotes after the chart:
Yahoo! Search, MSN Search (Live.com) and Ask.com 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.
