Do you know that Bing is catching up on Google in terms of Search Engine dominance?
Bing has taken 30% of the U.S. search market making Google extremely nervous. The 30% percent in March represents 15% from their main site Bing.com and the other 15% from Yahoo.
Back in August, Microsoft took over Yahoo’s search functionality. Google saw its lead decline, going from 67% percent to 65% percent. Google was at 71.59 percent at its apex but has lost ten percent.
If Google continues losing 2-3% per month – its current rate, and Bing continues to gaining 5-6%, Bing could overtake Google by 2012.
Though this set of numbers are primarily from the United States, many internet marketers and internet gurus actually believe that the usage of Bing+Yahoo! will definitely surpass Google, unless, Google's new Plus 1 actually succeeded in giving them the userability data that they so crave for. If Google's +1 can actually work, then I think it would really boost up their usage numbers and give them even more better results when users do a search.
