Google Maintains Search Lead
comScore has released its June 2011 numbers regarding search share.
In a nutshell, the results are Google stays even in Explicit search and goes up in Core search. Bing gets better but the increase must be coming from Yahoo who is down. Below are two charts showing these numbers.
So it’s another month of playing the “Has Bing put a ding in Google’s thing?” game. The bottom line is that while Bing makes slow progress one wonders who even notices. The combined numbers of Bing and Yahoo are just over 30% market share but it never feels like anything is threatening Google’s position at the top.
Do you think Google is untouchable or will someone someday come along and do something to knock them off their perch? Is it going to be the Bingahoo alliance or will it take another player to get the job done?
Maybe the better question is whether it’s worth even wondering about this at this point in time because Google is who Google is?
