No news is good news for some. There has been almost zero change in comScore’s US desktop search engine rankings. Google and Ask.com each lost .1% while Microsoft Bing (20.3%), Yahoo (12.7%) and AOL (1.2%) all showed no monthly change in the rankings. Total search volume was down from 18.2 billion in May to 17.5 in June.
This just in; AOL is still around taking care of your grandparents searches for “how do I get to Google”.
A new high of nearly half (49 percent) of all internet users use search engines on a typical day, up from about one-third in 2002 – and closing in on the use level of email (60 percent of those online use email each day) – according to a new analysis from the Pew Internet & American Life Project.
Umm…only half the people? I guess there are a lot of grandparents getting on the interwebs to check their email hoping to hear from their chlidren. -Jeff
