Bing market share continues to grow
Bing is just a hair shy of the 10 percent mark in comScore’s search-engine market-share report, released Tuesday to Wall Street.
Microsoft’s search engine captured 9.9 percent of the market in October, up half a percentage point from September. Meanwhile, Google’s share also increased – from 64.9 percent to 65.4 percent – and Yahoo’s dropped 0.8 points to 18 percent.
Microsoft continues to post impressive year-over-year numbers. In August, September and October, the number of searches Bing fielded was at least 30 percent more than the year before, according to comScore. Back then, the Redmond-based company’s search engine was Live Search; it was rebranded Bing in June.
