According to the latest data from Experian Hitwise, Bing-powered searches ó that is searches on Bing.com and search.yahoo.com ó now account for 30.01% of all U.S. searches. By itself, Bing grew 16% year-over-year and 5% month-over-month and now accounted for 14.32% of all U.S. searches in April 2012. Yahoo grew somewhat slower, but still at a respectable 5% month-over-month and 7% year-over-year.
Things didnít quite look so rosy for Google, though. Searches on Google.com, according to Hitwise, declined 3% in April 2011 compared to the previous month and were down 5% year-over-year. Google, of course, still remains far ahead of its competition. In April, almost 64.5% of all U.S. searches were powered by Google.
..there will be a complete reversal in how they treat webmasters. If it doesn't happen, then we'll add a footnote to Wikipedia about how arrogance of the PhD was their G's ultimate downfall. :)I don't think treating websites or webmasters badly is the only reason; there is banning in Fecebook too, and they don't are serious for their users interests as well. All of them, Google, Facebook, Bing, Twitter just do what is in their interest and 'in their whim' (this one is too unfortunate). They least care about for usability and for comfort of their end users. Real reason for downfall of G is the social things happening so much, that shaking everything in the search world as well. They need to think seriously stepping into social networking and social sharing area.
