Bing and Google Trains Keep on Rolling in September

The September search share stats are out and it’s no surprise to see that Yahoo! is the biggest loser yet again.

According to statistics released by Compete, Yahoo’s search share continues to take a steady dive. It lost another 1% market share last month and has now lost a total of 5% since September 2008.

It’s a whole other story for the new kid in town, Bing, whose search share continues to rise and unlike many of the other major search engine also had an increase in the number of total queries.

Here is a rundown of the market share for each search engine.

The all-mighty Google remained pretty stable from last month, but has grown over 4% from this time last year. I wonder if we will see this same growth this time next year or will Bing cause Google’s growth to slow in 2010?

The introduction of Bing to the market seems to have had little effect on AOL and Ask. Both search engines market share has remained quite constant over the last few months. Although with less than 4% market share combined, it’s hardly going to cause any sleepless nights for Bing.

So how did search do overall in September? Not too good actually! Searchers submitted 200 million less queries than in August. There’s no cause for concern yet though as this will likely bounce back with with Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas all just around the corner.
