Google Continues Search Gains At Yahoo's Expense

Internet search figures for the month of May showed that U.S. queries rose 11.2% year-over-year, with Google Inc. continuing to grab market share. The Web search giant now has a record high 50.7% of the U.S. market, according to global Internet information provider comScore.

Google has been consistently trending upward in search, which could prevent
Yahoo! Inc.’s attempt to boost its share of revenue in this market, Citigroup analyst Mark Mahaney said in a note to clients.

Meanwhile, Yahoo’s share of the search market fell to 26.4%, its lowest level in more than three years.
Microsoft remained at 10.3% and the Ask Network dipped slightly to 5%.
