According to ComScore data for February, Google increased its market share to 42.3%, from 36.3% on a year-over-year basis. High-profile rivals Yahoo! (Nasdaq: YHOO - News) and Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT - News) both dipped. Yahoo!'s search share fell to 27.6% from 31.1%, while MSN's share dropped to 13.5% from 16.3%. In an interesting aside, IAC/InterActiveCorp.'s (Nasdaq: IACI - News) Ask.com increased to 6% from 5.3%. (Ask.com recently dropped long-time gentleman's gentleman Jeeves and has embarked on a TV ad campaign entreating folks to give its search tools a whirl.)

I would like to know where they get these numbers because there not even close to the world I live in. Google at 42%? I have never seen any stats I look at, for any site we have, reflect a number that low.
If so, I'd buy the distribution. Google's network is substantial... with that included the % share is likely over 60%.
