More Consumers Googling With Bing

bingleMicrosoft’s Bing search service continues to gather momentum, albeit slowly. Bing’s share of the U.S. Internet search market grew one percent in July, rising to 9.41 percent from 8.23 percent in June, according to metrics outfit StatCounter.

Meanwhile, Yahoo (YHOO) and Google (GOOG) lost ground–Yahoo’s share fell to 10.95 percent from 11.04 percent and Google’s to 77.54 percent from 78.48 percent. Together, Microsoft (MSFT) and Yahoo, thanks to their new alliance, claim 20.36 percent of the search marke. That is still far less than Google’s 77.54 percent, but it’s significant nonetheless given the daunting challenge the search sovereign presents. Said StatCounter CEO Aodhan Cullen: “Bing continues to make slow but steady progress but the combined Yahoo! figures suggests that the deal announced last week will have to demonstrate major future synergies if it is to make any dent in Google’s dominance.”

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
