US Search Charts

12 billion searches in July just in the US alone!

Its often interesting to look at what’s happening in the search engine world. Who is the top dog and what are the trends?

Comscore reported July figures for the US that show that Google continues to dominate with 9.9 billion searches and 61.9% share, next comes Yahoo with 2.5 billion searches and 20.5% share and then Microsoft with 8.9% share. It’s interesting also to see the smaller searches that are tied to services such as social networks and commercial sites. Ebay serviced 435 million searches, Craigslist 342 million, Facebook 173 million and Amazon 166 million.

When you see these figures its easy to understand both the revenue income that the major search engines generate!
