Google is increasing its lead over Yahoo and Microsoft in the U.S. Web search market while a rebranded Ask.com is inching up, according to the latest statistics from ComScore Networks.
Google’s domestic market share rose to 42.3 percent in February, up from 36.3 percent a year earlier, ComScore said.
Yahoo’s search market share in the United States fell to 27.6 percent from 31.1 percent a year ago, while MSN fell to 13.5 percent from 16.3 percent and Time Warner’s America Online fell to 8 percent from 8.9 percent.
IAC Search & Media’s Ask.com, which unveiled a new brand and interface last month, rose to 6 percent from 5.3 percent.
More by following the link including a financial analyst prediction that Google will have eventually have a 70% share. I would point out that comScore now has a business arrangement with Google, but their numbers aren’t wildly different from those before the deal. They are somewhat different from those from other sources, but the story is the same – Google seems to be running way with the bulk of the market.
