Bing’s share grew 0.5 percentage points from its 17.4 percent in May. In June 2012, 15.6 percent of searches were conducted on Bing.
Yahoo hit a new low as it lost 0.5 percentage points in June from 11.9 percent in May. Yahoo’s market share is down overall from 13 percent in June 2012.
Both Ask and AOL had unchanged market share from May, with Ask at 2.7 percent and AOL at 1.3 percent. However, both are down from this time last year, where Ask had 3 percent of market share and AOL, 1.5 percent.
When it came to Google-powered organic searches in June, the search engine held steady from May with 68.6 percent of searches. Bing experienced a 0.1 percentage-point increase from May with 26.8 percent of searches.
Turning to “explicit core” searches, which exclude “contextually driven searches that do not reflect specific user intent to interact with the search results,” comScore reported 19.2 billion explicit core searches in June, with Google ranking first at 12.8 billion. Bing came in second at 3.4 billion searches, followed by Yahoo at 2.2 billion. Ask saw 524 million and AOL, 253 million.
