Yahoo Increases Search Market Share 2 Points in a Month - Pulling Up Alongside Bing for 2nd place

2 comments

Spotted this today at SEL. Some of Marissa Mayer's acquistions and moves at Yahoo have left me scratching my head, but the partnership with Firefox was one of her better ones. StatCounter reports that Google's share in December was just over 75%, Bing's was 12.5% and Yahoo's was 10%, up from 8% the previous month.Pretty nice gain in 30 days and it's pretty much the result of their Firefox deal.

As more Firefox users update to 34, I think we can expect to see these trends continue for the near future and we might see Yahoo pull right up alongside Bing pretty soon for market share.
