Google Inc. received 67% of all U.S. Internet searches during the four weeks ended March 29, according to information service Hitwise.

Google received 64% of all U.S. Internet searches in the same period a year earlier.

Yahoo Inc.'s search engine received 20% of U.S. Web searches in the more recent period, while Microsoft Corp.'s MSN Search drew 7% and Ask.com 4%.

The remaining 46 search engines in Hitwise's search engine analysis tool accounted for about 2% of searches in the U.S.

If they don't buy Yahoo, MS may end up in dead heat with Ask!

ask.com has currently the best results, Google allows now too much mfa link spam, msn and yahoo results are fully useless. My observation for a globally relevant kw.

I believe that the MSN figure includes searches on live.com as well.

That's a blow.

Two years ago research (WebSideStory Inc) showed that while we in the UK think the sun shines out of Google's lower region, using it for a massively unimaginative 75% of searches, the world in general used Google for 62%, and Americans were a little more discerning, using it for 55%
