Microsoft Search Share Rising

The latest comScore data is out, and Microsoft Windows Live Search saw its market share rise 0.4%, the biggest gain of any search engine. Google gained 0.2%, with only Yahoo losing to pretty much everybody.

U.S. Search Market Share
March ‘07 Feb. ‘07
Google 48.3% 48.1%
Yahoo 27.5% 28.1%
Microsoft (MSN) 10.9% 10.5%
Ask.com 5.2% 5.0%
AOL 5.0% 4.9%

It ain’t much, but it isn’t the only gain Microsoft has had in the last few months. With Google flying so high, gains in the search market aren’t easy, so the fact that they are showing anything means Microsoft actually has a shot in this thing. Avoiding losing now is the first step, and without it there wouldn’t be any way to win later.
