Microsoft’s Bing search engine is proving to be a competitor to Google. Or, is it? Bing gained a point in July while Google dropped a point in US search engine market share. The graph on ArsTechnica reveals the two month trend, June through July:
StatCounter says that Bing climbed to 9.41 percent of the search market last month, compared to 8.23 percent in June. Combined with Yahoo’s current share of the market (10.95 percent), the two come out with 20.36 percent—still a distant second to Google’s 77.54 percent, but a relatively large slice of the pie nonetheless.
Either way, that’s not much of a change.
