According to web analytics firm Statcounter , Bing has registered it’s first decline since its launch, Bing has lost more than one percentage of the search marketing in US in September.
Its market share fell from 8.51% to 9.64% in August. During this time Yahoo also showed a decline in its market share to 9.40 % from 10.50 %. Although Bing’s decline has been just over one percentage point, it sure would be a worrying factor for Microsoft.
With Bing and Yahoo losing market shares in the month of september, it should be no surprise who gained from them. Google gained by almost two percentage points to 80.08% in September from 77.83% the previous month.
As per StatsCounter the Data is based on an analysis of 4.6 billion search engine referring clicks (1.1 billion from the US) which were collected during the period September 2008 to September 2009 from the StatsCounter network of over three million websites.
