Google Inc.'s (GOOG) share of the U.S. Internet search market dipped a full percentage point in July when compared to June's total, according to research released Friday by comScore Networks Inc.
"We think (the) loss in domestic market share could signal a topping point" for Google, he wrote. "We do not expect Google's aggressive market share gains to continue in perpetuity."
Please read stats with a bit of statistical weary eye. A 1% difference is well within a margin of error.
In business & finance, Yahoo rank #1 at 34.9%, Google #40 at 0.29%.
In maps, Mapquest is #1 at 56.3%. Google Maps is #3 at 7.5%.
Email services, Yahoo is #1 at 42.4%, Gmail's "growing penetration" puts them at #4, 2.54%. (Behind MSN #2 at 22.980% and - yikes! - Myspace Mail #3 at 19.5%.)
One has to be careful how one throws-around "among the leaders", or "market leader".
Since we mentioned Nielsen, they published their market share data on the 21st.
