Google Market Share Takes “Giant” Fall

Google the search engine Giant appears to have been felled from the ranks of “giant” to now a, er- lesser giant.

The search company search engine market share dropped little more than 10%, from a whopping 73.9% in May 2010 to 63.6% as of this May due to competition from Microsoft Bing, up 7.3% from to 9.7% May 2010 up to 17% in May 2011.

Google to let publishers to set limits miffs Murdoch

Contributed by, Keith Perry.

Recently, news mogul Rupert Murdoch has threatened to team up with MSN’s Bing for exclusive access to his online news.Google vs Murdoch 2009

On Dec 1, Google struck back with their own approach by letting publishers set a daily limit for readers of five free articles per day.

While this deflates Murdoch’s approach which itself could have become mired in anti-competitive issues, it maintains Google’s lucrative advertising profits from its search engine.

Google search dominates US and global markets. Bing drops. Yahoo Search falls too.Google_Yahoo_Bing

A recent Mashable post on search market share that shows Google dominating both the US and global markets.

According to Experian Hitwise, Google increased its market share up 1% from from 70.24% to 71.08% in the US. Microsoft‘s Bing however struggles to maintain growth, dropping 5% in the US from 9.48% to 8.96% for September 2009.

Even more remarkable, Net Applications’ Market Share Report shows Google above 80% market share globally. See their report and graph here.

Google gains ground even over the second largest shareholder, Yahoo Search, drops 3% to 16.38% in US market share. Clearly the search engine giant, Google offers online consumers more with its algorithmic results.
