Hitwise Announces January Search Market Share Numbers

So, while Bing looks good with a 5% gain from December to January … the January number is barely better than back in November.
Meanwhile, looking back over a few months this way shows Yahoo’s continued slide, a trend that Greg Sterling pointed out earlier in his roundup of the latest comScore search share numbers.
