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.

StatCounter’s numbers show Google to have a 91.75% market share for the month of June 2012.

Yahoo

Yahoo’s 6.85% market share highlights the company’s slow, but gradual growth since January’s 5.82% market share, according to Netmarketshare.

StatCounter reveals that Yahoo currently sits at a 3.04% market share.

Bing

According to Netmarketshare, Bing has seen one of its strongest periods since its inception. The Microsoft-owned search engine featured a 4.81% market share in June 2012.

StatCounter shows Bing to have held a 3.27% market share in June 2012.
