Google Search Share Stable, Bing Growth Continues At Yahoo’s Expense

us-map-bing-google-yahoo-featured In February, Google controlled 67.5 percent of US search query volume, according to comScore. Bing had 18.4 percent and Yahoo, 10.3 percent. These numbers were essentially unchanged from last month. Compared with a year ago, Bing's share has grown and Yahoo's declined. In February 2013, Google had an identical 67.5 percent of queries while Bing had 16.7 percent, and Yahoo had 11.6 percent. A year before that, Google controlled 66.4 percent of queries, Bing 15.3 percent and Yahoo 13.8 percent.

EU Antitrust Chief Says Google Settlement Essentially Done

google-eu-featured Amid criticism from politicians and Google's critics, EU antitrust chief Joaquín Almunia has essentially said that the current version of Google's antitrust settlement proposal is a done deal. While he didn't rule out changes definitively he seems to think complainants' criticisms have been addressed. The current proposal requires Google to give up considerable screen real estate and branding to vertical rivals. Google's opponents want another "market test" (time for criticism and study of the proposal's potential impact). They also don't want to pay Google for placement in contex [...]


A Dilbert On Search Engine Keyword Research

seo-geek-dilbert-1395146769 There was a fun search marketing-related Dilbert strip last week on the topic of doing and presenting your keyword research to your boss. The search marketer says: "I did A-B testing and found the search terms that bring the most people to our site." He then adds "the most effective search terms are "wingless skunk"," "junkyyard snack," and "planned injury." When he presents his findings to his colleagues in his office, he gets Topper who responds, "Well, Duh! You could have just asked me." I am sure most of you can relate to this. You can see the full strip over here. Other Searc [...]

Forecast: Google To Lose $1.4B In PC Revs As Search Shifts To Mobile

google-earnings-money-featured A forecast just released by eMarketer argues that Google will lose $1.4 billion in PC search revenue in 2014 as paid clicks partly migrate to mobile devices, where revenue per click has been lower. Some of that PC revenue decline will be offset by growth in mobile paid clicks. Some marketers to date have actively discounted their paid mobile clicks on Google enhanced campaigns. Below is the full eMarketer US spending forecast by advertising channel. The forecast notes that in 2013, just over 76 percent of Google's paid search revenues came from the PC. This year that number is expec [...]

EU Settlement Nearly Done, Google Antitrust Drama Shifts To India

Google legal Although the Google antitrust settlement in Europe isn't final it appears we're in the final minutes of the final act. There still may be a surprise or two in store but we mostly know how this story is going to end. Now it appears the Google antitrust drama is shifting to India, where an antitrust investigation against the company is ongoing. According to a report in the Times of India, that country's competition authority, the Competition Commission of India (CCI), has the power to impose a fine of up 10 percent annual revenues, averaged over a three year period. That could mean up t [...]


Google Posts Women’s Day 2014 Logo After Agreeing Its Logos Are Male-Dominated

womens-day-2014-6253511574552576.3-hp Tomorrow, March 8th is International Women's Day and Google has a special Google logo, aka Google Doodle, for the day. The logo is going live 12 hours early on all Google properties around the world, in order to make sure those who don't go to Google on Saturday see it the day before. The Doodle is heavily animated and features a 90-second video showing how women have historically been underrepresented in almost all fields. Here is that video. It is interesting Google is posting this because just the other day a study came out showing only 17% of Google Doodles in the past two ye [...]
