Windows Live Search May See Real Succeess Internationally

LiveSide notes that Windows Live Search may be losing market share in the United States, but its share of searches in other countries could be telling a completely different story. In one example, Hong Kong saw Live Search up 140% over the last eleven months.

This could be a familiar strategy for Microsoft, which has taken over other markets en route to being number one worldwide. Readers with a good memory may remember that in April, Microsoft overtook AOL to have the number one instant messenger client, due to strong numbers in Latin America, Europe and Asia. It would not shock me to see the same thing happening with the search engine.
