Bing market share is up to 10.3% from 9.9%

According to comScore's November statistics (via eWeek), Google and Bing are essentially having a feeding frenzy on Yahoo's lost market share. Yahoo's share fell by 0.5 percent last month to 17.5 percent. Bing grabbed most of those searches, rising from 9.9 percent in October to 10.3 percent last month.

Surprised that did not get picked up by more people.

10% is a milestone for Bing.

Click on a link within that article and another well respected company is reporting that Bing's share actually dropped. That same article also reports that Goggle has increased share. So on balance it would seem that Bing is staying static, Yahoo is falling and both articles agree that Google is increasing share.

Two things are agreed by both articles, Yahoo is loosing market share and Google is gaining market share.

That must annoy Microsoft intensely, particularly because of their deal with Yahoo to power Yahoo search.

It looks to me like Yahoo is seriously failing now, at least in the search engine market. The end of Yahoo search can't be far over the horizon now. The implications of that seem to be far more significant than Bing going up or down a third of a percent or so.

The implications are Google's days are numbered as the dominent search portal. All you have to do is read around the webmaster community and you will see that the mood toward Google is very ugly these days. More so than Microsoft.

Google is to busy with other things like trying to force their decisions on you and making all your decisions for you so you don't have to think. Google knows what is best for you.

This is of course after they have taken over the world with their phones and other gadgets.

Comscore is just as respected as hitlinks if not more so pick the one you like best. I tend to be believe Comscore more than hitlinks.

Google fans will quote hitlinks data and Bing fans will quote comscore data.

If their market share is increasing, then I can't say i agree with the implication. Microsoft have come a long way in improving communications and product and have certainly not been guilty of arrogance this time round, but they still need to do more to turn the tide it seems!

Give them time..

The winds have shifted and it's not in Google's favor. Of course it won't happen over night because all of us and allowed them to get so big, but it's going to happen now that many of those that once thought highly of them, no longer do so.

Every chance I get, I tell clients, friends and family just how evil Google really is and many of them are listening.

At least with Bing/MSN you know what it's about and they don't pretend to be the saviors of mankind. Google on the other hand is going to save mankind from themselves by giving them what they want before they even know they want it.

Bing passed Y! in our stats for the first time today. I guess I should be hoping the switch takes place soon.
