Bing captured 9.85% of all U.S. searches in June, up from 9.23% in May, according to data released Thursday by Experian Hitwise. Yahoo's share held roughly steady at 14.37%, while Google's market share fell 1% month-to-month, from 72.17% to 71.65%.

Bing's short-term climb is impressive, but a longer view shows Microsoft's upstart search engine making even bigger inroads against its main rival.

With its share currently at 9.85%, Bing has grown 88% in just 12 months. Yahoo's share has declined 11.24% over the same period, while Google is down 3.2% over that span.


Is this what made Google change the display of SERP's?...$$$.

On the biggest site I run, I got 3% of my organic hits from Bing, and 92.5% from Google, that is, before I started blocking Microsoft hits due to performance concerns a week and a half ago.

I've seen steady growth from Bing on all my sites over the past year. Although Bing is still a very small percentage of overall traffic.

I get 23% of natural traffic from bing, 9% from Yahoo and 65% from Google. Bing is picking up traffic.

[siteanalytics.compete.com...]

looks like goog has hit its growth max, you can see the slight drop in goog traffic right as bing takes a slight bump up.

:-)

[siteanalytics.compete.com...]

another thing to watch, yahoo and bing combind is more then goog. So once this algo change kicks in MS will then have the upper hand on goog.

Google works better than Bing with older browsers, it recognises your version and serves suitable pages for them. Bing does not seem to bother so much.

So MS fails to serve people who are almost all using their browsers (older browsers generally means IE 6).

Don't quote me on chapter a verse but I just noticed that on bing.com image search failed when I was looking at it on an IE5.5. Google images still works fine on IE5.5

A blip - Could be related to the half a % IE market share gain in June. Of the four laptops I reinstalled in the last few weeks Bing popped up before I killed it and replaced it with Google.

Go Bing! Their search and Adcenter needs more improvement imo. I logged into my Adcenter recently and it was still dreadful.. Better but still bad. They should really adopt the Adwords interface.

Still, as they say in Yorkshire, twice naught is still naught!

I like the idea of the old evil empire getting onto a good footing against the newer evil empire. I even like the product.

I still get majority of hits from Google but like somebody said, I can't ignore Bing anymore. Since last month I've been getting a lot of hits from Bing. By the way, I'm responsible for their search share increase. :-) I'm getting accustomed to Bing! I don't use Google anymore. I was using #*$! and Bing but #*$! went south on me.

I suspect that the increased market share is largely due to new computers and new installs rather than advertising or any particular fondness for the product - changing the default from Bing to Google is simply too difficult for the average punter (as was no doubt intended).

It's no great surprise though, and variety remains the spice of life.

Maybe Google should copy Bing and put an image on the homepage ... maybe it'll help get that 1% back ;)

Does it ever. Three days after drafting a new ad and I'm still waiting for approval. Not like they have that many customers.

No, it would just make Google look as tacky as Bing then.

I've been surprised by the relative sales volume from bing searches lately.

The word is getting out. More often I hear that folks like the "clean results" of Bing compared to Google. Then again, G's press these days, even in the drive-by media, is not as sparkling as previous. As we all know---when deep pockets are concerned---the gimme folks go after 'em. Any country.

Bing is gonna take much lot of time to give competition to Google but it's definitely capturing some part of the market

Maybe. But in the same way Chrome is eating into IEs browser dominance.

I don't know a single non techie person who uses Chrome. I don't use Chrome and none of the developers I work with do either.

Nor do I test websites on Chrome. I don't care about Chrome and certainly will not give Google further insights into my browsing habits buy using their spyware.

I don't think IE needs to worry to much at this point about Chrome. Google came to the party to late in the game to be much of a factor at this point.

With the bad plubicity that Google is getting about privacy and other stuff, many people are turned off to using their products.
