Google Instant Search Share
Google Instant Search Share – Research has found that Google was able to maintain their lead in the search market for September, and that the Bing and Yahoo search deal saw a bit of a dip in their stats, just a few short months after the deal was announced. It was in September that Google introduced their new search feature, Google Instant. The feature allows the page to reload while a person is typing their phrase in, bringing instantaneous searching to most users. It has taken awhile to get used to for many people, but the vast majority of users have found the new feature to be useful, especially when they do not know exactly how to word something for a search engine query, which is something that is more common than most would imagine.
The research showed that Google received 66.1% of the total search queries for the month of September. They had fallen since August, but their Google Instant feature will reportedly increase their market share as more searches take place on the Google website. The 66.1% also reflected searches that are done on other websites that are subsidiary to Google as well. It will be interesting to see what happens to Google from here on out. They have done their best to capture the market, but with Microsoft and Yahoo already having teamed up, and Microsoft and Facebook getting ready to do so, there will be an all out assault on the search market over the course of the next few years.
