Google increases dominance while Microsoft Bing drops

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.
