Bing-powered search in the United States just broke the 30% barrier, clocking in at 30.01% in March according to Hitwise. That was a rise from its February tally of 28.48%.
Google in the same time period dropped from 66.69% to 64.42%, ceding that ground to Bing.
Both Yahoo search, which Bing powers, and core Bing.com searches rose during the month. Market share for Bing.com rose from 13.49% to 14.32%, and Yahoo powered searches rose from 14.99% to 15.69% of the market.
Google might still be the leading search engine in the U.S. by a large margin, but over the last six months, searches powered by Microsoft Bing are increasing at an impressive rate. So impressive, in fact, that if the trend line continues, there will be a real contest between Bing and Google next year — and Bing may just come out on top.
According to the latest data from Experian Hitwise, Google was responsible for 64.42% of searches in the U.S. in March, 2011. Bing-powered search — which includes both search.yahoo.com and bing.com — accounted for 30% of U.S. searches.
Could this be an indication that the PUBLIC is not that happy with the Panda?I think most of the credit goes to Bing. They are working very hard in the "location" arena to make their results more meaningful, which is giving them a better rep overall. That's how you do it which you are working to attract everyone. You don't go after everyone. Instead, you get better here, get better there, then in this area, that area...
With Google you are page 1 for 4-5 years and then without changing a damn thing you're on page 4...and it's your fault.If you don't change a thing in four years, it probably is your fault.
Four results from the same site in position 1 to 4!?
This is what sank Yahoo - inward, xenophobic advertising model.
