It was an awful august when Google had dropped to 64.8%. It was a first time this giant search engine had ever dropped below to 65% of the market searches but in spite of this Google somehow managed to maintain the same reputation in September and got back its US searches to 65.3% an internet tracking company ComScore revealed today in a report.
On the other hand, yahoo which had defeated Google last time in US market searches has dropped from 16.3% in August to 15.5% in September. Seeing these drastic changes it seems that Google might have grabbed some of the extra market share from yahoo even if Google and yahoo have experienced the Bing changes in US searches market but Bing is still seems steady in third place with 14.7 shares (ComScore).
Nevertheless, where Google is ruling above 65% is a point of reference for Google, but according to Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst with ZK Research it is inconsequential in the actual market.
"Google didn’t drop down much below the 65% mark," noted Kerravala. "It’s only about half a percentage point. I don’t see that as significant. And, frankly, anything over 50% is dominant share…. That half a percent drop was just noise."
The battle between Google and Bing has always been in limelight ever since Bing has entered in the search engine market about one and half year ago and the competition between these two has pushed every single service to extend new features for instance Google’s new image and voice search tools, and real-time search from both services.
