Google is still the leader in Online Search; Baidu takes No. 3 Position
Google Search has been the most popular search service on Internet as per the latest search statistics reports from Internet Research firm Comscore Inc. Out of total 61 billion searches in the month of August Google Search was used for 35 billion. 95 percent of online users take help of search engines to find information on internet. Comscore data is based on the online search queries logged all over the world.
The report also includes the search done on major online portals like Amazon, eBay, Youtube and MySpace. Google managed to get more than 50 percent share in online search. Yahoo Search was way behind Google with only 8.5 billion searches done using Yahoo!
Chinese search engine Baidu was able to get a third rank by beating Microsoft. The search engine from China has seen a tremendous growth as the internet density in China has increased considerably. MSN Search has tried to launch many new features, but the search engine has failed to impress online users.
Google has easy to use interface and offers quick search on various topics. Search results from Google are more relevant and online users trust Google to find information. The difference between Google and Yahoo is really big and other Search engines have failed in their attempts to take away market share from online Search major Google.
Bob Ivins, VP ComScore for International markets said that with Chinese and Korean search engines coming among top 5 services, shows that online search has become a global phenomenon.
