Google, Yahoo & Bing
Is there anyone who hasn’t heard of Google? The vast majority of searchers turn to Google. Indeed, Google defines searching to the degree that some people say they “googled” something as a synonym for searching.
Despite its dominance, Google’s not alone in the search world. Its chief rivals are Yahoo and Microsoft’s Bing search engine. Bing even has a few people saying they “Bing It” rather than “Google It.”
Search Engine Land tracks all these major search engines closely. To learn more about them, see our pages below:
