Posted by @ 8:52 pm

The major search stats are out for January 2010 and it further shows how the steady decline of Yahoo! is being picked up as growth by other search engines such as Bing.

When you compare the performance of Yahoo since the launch of Bing, you’ll notice the steady erosion of Yahoo’s search share with the strong growth of Bing.


Yahoo’s failure to address their declining market share is probably closely related to their upcoming partnership with Bing. While the deal is still pending approval, with one declining and one growing, their overall combined market share is unlikely to change too much.
