google_logoThe latest study from ComCast into the US search engine market shows that Bing only saw a 0.1% increase from 9.3% to 9.4% from August to September, while Google increased by 0.3% to 69.9%.

It’s mostly Yahoo taking the biggest hit on the risings from Bing and Google as they saw a decrease of 0.5% to 18.8%.

Microsoft has seen a steady increase since they launched their search engine, Bing, but so far they haven’t really changed much of the actual market share. Before Bing was launched, Microsoft had a market share of 8.4% for search engine traffic.

Even though Google already has the biggest market share in the US and Microsoft is spending millions of dollars to promote Bing then Google is still the one increasing their market share.

I don’t know how I would compete with such a large entity on the internet in terms of a search engine. Google is a multi-billion dollar entity that really knows how to produce the best results possible in terms of a web search.

Bing definitely has there work cut out for them trying to take market share from such a large company!

Yup, they totally have their work cut out for them. But it’s good with some competition on the search engine market. Google is just having too much, as it is today.

I personally like Bing better and have been using it ever since the first time I tried it, not sure why but I seem to like it better.

I seem to remember you have spoken well about Bing in the past too. I’m glad you like it. For me though, it’s not really “clicking” yet. I try it every now and then, but just for the fun of it.
