And Google is now down at 63,7% – still huge!

I have already been writing several times about Bing and Yahoo gaining extra shares of the of searches in the US and this month they are again on the move while Google goes down a bit!

Bing (Microsoft sites) is now up at 11,8% and Yahoo! sites gained 0,8% to now 17,7% making the combined “MicroHoo” closer to the 30% – at 29,5%!
And Google lost a bit for the second month in a row -  now down 0,7% to a still massive 64,4% – but is still makes it more and more important to remember both Bing and Yahoo! in the Search Marketing activities!

With Bing and Yahoo! again moving a bit forward and closer to 30% of share of searches in the US according to comScore, it just makes more and more sense to include them in the US search advertising campaign – if you didn’t already do it…

Bing went from 11,5% to 11,7% and Yahoo! from 16,8% to 16,9% giving MicroHoo a combined share of 28,6%.
And Google went a little down to still a massive 65,1%

It’s not going as fast as it has been, but comScore reports that February was in fact a month with a small growth in Bings share of searches in the USA.
Bing (Microsoft sites) went from 11,3% to 11,5%, but unfortunately Yahoo! went 0,2% down, so MicroHoo had a unchanged share of the searches.. still there’s a combined share of 28,3%!
And yes, Google went 0,1% up to 65,5%.

comScore reports that January 2010 was another good month for Microsoft Bing with a small increase their part of the US Search traffic.
Bing added another 0,6% and are now at 11,3%, whereas Yahoo! goes down 0,3% to 17,0% – interesting is though that the combination Yahoo!+Bing adds 0,3%.
And another interesting thing is Google US Search share going DOWN o,3% to still a massive 65,4% – still very impressive!

Bing is still growing!

It seems like Microsoft did something better than before when they decided to launch the search engine Bing.
All the way since the launch in late May 2009 Bing has seen an increase in their share of the search market and the month of December in US was not different.

comScore reports that Bing in December went up 0,4% to 10,7%, but Google is still the BIG one adding 0,1% which makes Google take a massive 65,7% of the US search market. In the same period Yahoo went down 0,2% to 17,3%, but the really interesting part about it is that Yahoo+Bing is at more than 25% procent (28%), so for a US PPC campaign you really have a big chunk of extra traffic to gain from also using them…  not really the same in Denmark where Yahoo+Bing might add 3% on a very good day…  😉

Personally I really like that Bing is growing, not because its Microsoft or..  but simply because I hope at some point that we’ll see Google massive position as the clear number 1 in search shaken just a bit – some competition would be really good!

Ouch, it’s quite a beating that Yahoo! Advertisning has taken in UK – 40% down from 2007 to 2008 even though the Search marked went up 11%.

So the UK Search Ad Marked now looks like:
Google 88,2%
Yahoo! 8,4%
Microsoft 3,4%
(Efficient Frontier)

Is it really only US and Japan that can show the advertisers a good reason to spend time on Yahoo! ?

So Google did a couple of years ago “dismantle” the Google Bomb (the techique used) that got famous by hitting former president George W. Bush by making his White House biography number one ranking in Google on the search for “miserable failure”, but it seems like Yahoo! didn’t “dismantle” the Google Bomb on their search engine part…. and now president Barack Obama is number one of “miserable failure” at Yahoo!
That’s a tough job not even finishing your first week at the White House and Yahoo! already “nominates” you as “miserable failure”….
I guess Yahoo! just got one more incentive to make their algorithm better..  😉
Having only around 20% of the searches in US (opposed to Google’s 63%) does create some expectations, Yahoo!

Barack Obama as “miserable failure” on Yahoo!

What is ‘søgeoptimering’?

September 23rd, 2007 | Posted by Niels Klintø in WEB - (0 Comments)

I know this gets pretty nerdy and then mixed with some Danish words like søgeoptimering , but being in a company like Addvisors helping clients getting traffic/customers from Search Engines I do see a lot of funny words in the business… I mean even the sort of term for part of the business ‘Search Engine Optimization’/ søgemaskineoptimering is not really good – we dont really optimize any Search Engine… we expect Google, MSN and Yahoo to do that kind of optimization…
And what about søgeoptimering – search optimization… I guess its about helping the ‘poor’ user of a search engine optimizing his search so he’ll find what he need… or?
Any other good ones?
