Factoid: Search Engine Market Share
Ian Lurie Nov 9 2006
In case you’re wondering:
Google gets 44.1% of all searches right now. That’s up 7% over last year.
Yahoo gets 28.7%. Down 1%.
MSN gets 12.5%, down 3%.
AOL gets 5.6%. Ask.com gets another 5.5%.
All other search engines on earth fight over the remaining 3.6% of available search traffic.
So if anyone ever calls you telling you they’ll ‘register’ you with ’2,000 search engines’, scream foul and run…
