The month-to-month trend wobbles too much for my taste. So looking back one year, here is where they were:
Google Sites led the U.S. explicit core search market in December 2012 with 66.7 percent market share, followed by Microsoft Sites with 16.3 percent (up 0.1 percentage points) and Yahoo! Sites with 12.2 percent (up 0.1 percentage points). Ask Network accounted for 3 percent of explicit core searches, followed by AOL, Inc. with 1.8 percent (up 0.1 percentage points).
More than 17.6 billion explicit core searches were conducted in December 2012 (up 4 percent), with Google Sites ranking first with 11.8 billion (up 4 percent). Microsoft Sites ranked second with 2.9 billion searches (up 5 percent), followed by Yahoo! Sites with 2.2 billion (up 5 percent), Ask Network with 534 million (up 5 percent) and AOL, Inc. with 310 million (up 4 percent).

In the last year the market share shift was:
  • Google moved up 0.6%
  • MS is up 1.9%
  • Yahoo is down 1.4%
  • Ask lost 0.5%
  • AOL lost 0.5%

I was hoping that there would be a bit more impact from people using DuckDuckGo and other alternative SEs.
