Search by the numbers
It’s tough to ever be perfectly accurate about how much market share each search engine really has but here are the numbers from October anyway. Mediapost reports that Google was once again the top with 48% of the search requests performed–2.4 billion. Yahoo! came in second with 21.8% of all searches and MSN took 11.3% of the market share.
Trailing the big three are the Google-powered AOL engine with 7.2% and Ask Jeeves marketing campaign starts to pay off, nearly doubling their traffic to rise from 75.81 million searches to 133.93 million searches.
