Nielsen says Google US share dropping too

Posted by David Hunter at 6:10 PM ET.

Much like last week’s report from comScore, Nielsen/NetRatings is reporting that Google’s US search share dropped slightly in July:

Nielsen/NetRatings, an Internet research firm, said Monday Google handled 49.2 percent of the country’s total — about 2.8 billion searches — a slight drop from its 49.4 percent share in June.

Nielsen/NetRatings reported a slight gain in July for the No. 2 search provider, Yahoo Inc., which inched up to 23.8 percent from 23 percent last month.

Microsoft Corp.’s MSN and Time Warner Inc.’s AOL dropped less than a percent, while IAC/Interactive Corp.’s edged up under one percent.

Update: Gabriel Madway has more at MarketWatch. Nielsen’s numbers indicate total US searchs were up by 35% from a year ago and while Google and Yahoo more or less kept pace with the growth, MSN Search was down 3% from last year.
