Google Still Dominating U.S. Searches

Google accounted for 71.16 percent of all U.S. searches in the four weeks ending September 27, 2008, according to Hitwise.


Google increased its percentage of the search market 7.61 percent over its September percentage of 63.55 percent and was up slightly over August 2008 by 0.15 percent.


Yahoo! Search, MSN Search and Ask.com each received 18.06 percent, 5.63 percent and 3.63 percent respectively.


The remaining 45 search engines in the Hitwise Search Engine Analysis Tool accounted for 1.80 percent of U.S. searches.


Search engines continue to be the primary way Internet users navigate to key industry categories. Comparing September 2008 with September 2007, business and finance, sports, online video and social networking categories showed double-digit increases in their share of traffic coming directly from search engines.
