Insights and statistics from comScore

comScore has just released some interesting search engine ranking stats for March 2009. To round up:

  • Google took its widest-ever lead in the U.S. search market in March, it had a 63.7 percent market share of the 14.3 billion U.S. searches in March, increasing 0.4 percentage points from February. Yahoo’s market share slipped slightly while Microsoft’s improved marginally.
  • Overall U.S. search queries in March increased 9 percent from February, however the fact that February is significantly shorter than March accounts for many of these searches.
  • jumped 131% in March to 9.3 million visitors! That’s 5 million more visitors than in February.
  • Facebook’s usage in European countries grew by 314% to 100 million visitors in February from 24 million the same month a year earlier and is now the 6th biggest Web property worldwide, posting 275 million visitors in February, a 175% increase from the same period a year ago.

These figures, of course, confirm that the future looks promising for SEO and social media.
