Bing Hits 14 Percent, Google And Yahoo Flat: comScore

The comScore data for April were released by the financial analysts earlier today. Here’s the quick take on the newest search market-share figures:

  • Google: 65.4 percent in April vs. 65.7 percent in March
  • Yahoo: 15.9 percent vs. 15.7 percent in March
  • Bing: 14.1 percent, up from 13.9 percent in March
  • BingHoo: 30 percent, up slightly vs March
  • Ask: 3 percent vs. 3.1 percent in March
  • AOL: 1.5 percent vs. 1.6 percent in March

Bing has continued its incremental gains, as Ask and AOL continue their incremental declines. Google and Yahoo fluctuate but are relatively flat. Its worth noting that comScore isn’t capturing mobile query volumes which Google dominates.

The official comScore figures should be out later today.

    I am personally searching more from my browser bar, and IE9 defaulting to Bing must be helping out with the increase in Bing share of Search.
