US Desktop Search Rankings Hold Steady; Google Maintains 64% Share


For the second consecutive month, there was little change in comScore’s US desktop search engine rankings. Google, still the overwhelming leader with 64% of the share of the market, and Ask, with less than 2% share, each lost 1/10 of a percentage point between May and June.

Microsoft Bing (20.3%), Yahoo (12.7%) and AOL (1.2%) all showed no monthly change in the rankings, which measure explicit core searches.


ComScore reported 17.5 billion explicit core searches were conducted in June in the US, down from 18.2 billion in May. Google’s total was 11.2 billion. Bing had 3.6 billion, followed by Yahoo with 2.2 billion, Ask Network with 301 million and AOL with 202 million.
