Netmarketshare has revealed that the global market share for search engines is still dominated by Google, with Yahoo, Bing, Baidu, Ask, and AOL making up the remainder of the market respectively.

Google

According to Netmarketshare’s report, Google continues to hold the majority of the search engine market with 81.74% share for the month of June 2012. This is the highest share measurement for Google since January 2012 (82.68% market share), as the web giant has experienced a slight slump since then.
