Google Grabs Increased U.S. Search Share
Google's gain came at the expense of Yahoo and Microsoft Bing. Yahoo dropped from 14.96 percent in April to 14.43 percent in May, while Bing fell from 9.43 percent the prior month to 9.23 percent.
The numbers stand out against the May search statistics from comScore, which quantified the search market shares using two data sets. In one set where comScore counted contextual shortcuts and slideshows from Yahoo and Bing, Google's search share at 63.7 percent, Yahoo commanded 18.3 percent and Bing nabbed 12.1 percent.
