Nearly nine out of 10 internet searches in the UK in June were powered by Google, compared to four per cent for Yahoo and just over three per cent for MSN.
The latest figures from monitoring company Hitwise suggest that the divvying up of market share moved only fractions of a per cent across the four main players during the month.
Whats your take on the Powerset purchase? looks interesting technology but will anyone ever visit microsoft (at least in the UK) to use it?
When people on the street use phrases like 'google for it'
Heh, people used to say "xerox it" and Xerox had to fight hard to make people use "photocopy" because they were terrified at the thought of word "xerox" becoming so common that they will lose their trademark on it. ;)
Google is definitely king in the UK - regardless of the higher prices and lower conversion rates, there's no point putting much effort into Yahoo and Live because the volume isn't there. Its a shame, because I'd really like to play with features like MSN's demographic targeting, but it isn't really worth that effort.
Everything I do, I do on Google first, refine it, and then apply to MSN/Yahoo later.
