The following are August search results. Ask surprised me. I did not realize how much market share they had. Ask is known as Ask Network and they had 3.8% of explicit core searches. Google had 65.4% market share, Yahoo! Sites had 17.4%, Microsoft sites had 11.1%, and AOL LLC had 2.3%. Obviously everyone talks about Google being the largest, however I posted these results to point out that they are only 2/3’s of the market.
Comscore defines an Explicit Core Search as such:
*“Explicit Core Search” excludes contextually driven searches that do not
reflect specific user intent to interact with the search results.
