For Those of You Just Joining Us: A Lot of People Use Google

google_hog.jpgA new survey by Forrester Research suggests that there’s still room in the search market for a Google killer. Brand loyalty there is apparently quite low, although you wouldn’t know it from the industry’s monthly search engine rankings, which consistently show Google (GOOG) holding the lion’s share of the market.

According to Nielsen Online’s January 2009 U.S. search engine rankings, 9.4 billion queries were submitted to search engines during the month, an estimated 5.9 billion of them to Google. That means the company captured 62.8 percent of all search queries conducted during that time, enjoying 40.8 percent year-over-year growth. Meanwhile, Yahoo (YHOO) captured just 16.2 percent of the U.S. search market in January, posting 8.7 percent year-over-year growth. Windows Live managed an 11.2 percent share with 18.3 percent year-over-year growth.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
