comScore: July Search Share, Google Down, Yahoo Up, Bing Stable [businessinsider.com]

Two years ago, many people expected Google to march right on up to 90% search share--and the stock price reflected this happy consensus. Now, however, it appears that Google will be lucky to cling to its mid-60% share.

Meanwhile, Yahoo clawed back half a point to 17% share (still well down from a year ago and close to the lowest in the company's history). And the Microsoft Bing train stalled out at 11%.

Well that's 28% together, if Google keeps playing with consumers Privacy and Mind Games the numbers could flip very soon...

I can't think of another industry, this big, where one single entity has almost 70% of the market share. I'm all for the "unified search platform", and am hoping for some break through there, but right now all we got is one small dog nipping at Googles pants instead of two little Chihuahua's.

I thought Google was untouchable too, until they went and messed with their own search results (mayday). Add the complete lack of privacy with anything Google related and I now feel compelled to use alternatives wherever possible. Times change fast online.

Same here. I tell everybody to use Yahoo and Bing and to quit using Google. Those search results are a joke.

If googling is a verb that refers to using G specifically, why isnt MS promoting Binging. I don't recall seeing that anywhere. Im sure no one would want to say they are yahooing.

Too bad about ASK, nary a mention of them here anymore,I was rooting for them as the next major but unfortunately they keep making wrong turns like Google.

It would be naive of anyone who posts here to think that Bing and Yahoo! don't track you the same way that Google does.

Well, it must be a funny joke, because they've still got 65% of the market share.

actually they've stated publicly they DO NOT track you the same way goog does, and they don't keep the tracking data F-O-R-E-V-E-R.

The number of referrals coming from Yahoo to my site has nearly doubled in the last few weeks. For a very long time Y was 10-12% and Google 82-84%. Now Yahoo is about 20%, and Google 75%.

I don't know what's driving it, but I like having more diversification.

I never bother to check who sends referrals anymore as Google has been always the significant one, but I checked today and I see I'm getting a ton of referrals from Yahoo! Not even close to Google's amount but that's just great news! It even surpassed Bing's
