Search-Engines-Market-Share-JuneBefore the Search Engine Market share for the month of June was published, only a very few of us (including myself) would have guessed this right! When the UK and US search engines market share stats for June 2013 was eventually published, some got it right and some got it wrong. The report amazed many and those who thought Bing share would drop back to below 17% were sent home feeling surprised.

Four things happened in the new stat and they are:

  1. Google Market Share dips again! It's still another dip for the search giant. It couldn’t match its May 2013 search engine market share of 90.36. June report shows that Google dropped 0.67% of its market share. To avoid this from happening, Google came out with Loon Project in May, which aimed to connect the two-thirds of the world that doesn’t have Internet access via floating balloons in the stratosphere. One would ask if this has been helpful. Presently, Google.com and Google.co.uk search engines received a combined total of 89.69 per cent of UK search volume in June 2013.
     
  2. Bing continues to climb! Bing has climbed again by 0.25 to claim 5.96 per cent of UK search volume.  In May, Bing’s US search market share hit another all-time high, passing 17 percent for the first time. And again, it has climbed by 0.25 to claim 5.96 per cent of UK search volume alone. Comparing the UK reports for May and June, Bing moved from 5.71 to 5.96 which shows that it has climbed by 0.25. May was the first time Bing has ever climbed to above 17%.
     
  3. Other search engines climbed to the extent that an anonymous search engine DuckDuckGo which in May 2013 was the 21st most-used US search engine, climbed to 8th. Other search engines such as SimilaronWeb, AOL, Ask Jeeves, Babylon, Conduit etc climbed up to 1.43, showing that that they have an increment of 0.15. They moved from 1.28 to 1.43.
  1. Yahoo enjoyed its highest volume of the last 12 months! With 2.92 per cent, Yahoo has climbed again with 0.27 comparing May and June statistic. The UK search engine market share stat for June 2013 shows that Yahoo moved from 2.65 to 2.92. Over the past two months, Yahoo and Bing continue to move up the market share.
