Microsoft Loses More Search Market Share

Publish.com has the latest search engine market share rankings from Nielsen/NetRatings, and MSN has lost a lot of market share, falling to 11% from 14%. Granted, Microsoft has only been doing this a year, and they’ve been shifting traffic between search.msn.com and live.com, but they still can’t be happy. Hopefully, they’re thinking long term and won’t overreact, and Berkowitz’s hiring is strategic, not reactionary.

Meanwhile, Google grew 2 percentage points to 49%, and may control half the search market by next month all by itself (it already has over 50% combined with AOL). Yahoo jumped one point to 22%.
