Google, Bing Hit All-Time Highs In June Search Market Share [comScore]
Google and Bing have reached all-time high levels, while Yahoo reached an all-time low in the latest comScore search market share numbers. They’re due to be released publicly later today or tomorrow, but financial analysts have seen and are sharing their copies of the data.
According to comScore’s explicit search market share report for June 2012 — which covers desktop searches only, not mobile — the numbers are as follows:
- Google: 66.8 percent in June, up from 66.7 percent in May; an all-time high for Google
- Bing: 15.6 percent in June, up from 15.4 percent in May; an all-time high for Bing
- Yahoo: 13 percent in June, down from 13.4 percent in May; an all-time low for Yahoo
ComScore’s data has now shown Yahoo with 10 consecutive declining months, in which the company has fallen from 16.3 percent to the current 13 percent market share. Bing, meanwhile, has had 26 straight months of either flat or rising market share.
Postscript: ComScore has now formally announced the numbers above. Here’s the chart version of the above for those who prefer it in graphical form:
