Bing Back With a Bang

548513149_F8DJk-S-150x150Looks like Bing’s September market share decline (as calculated by Hitwise) was more an anomaly than anything else. According to the latest figures from Hitwise, Bing’s share of the search market increased seven percent in October to 9.57 percent, evidently at the expense of both Google (GOOG) and Yahoo (YHOO). The search market share for both companies declined by one percent, Google’s to 70.60 percent and Yahoo’s to 16.14 percent. (See table below; click to enlarge.)

Good news for Microsoft (MSFT). Clearly, Bing’s traffic is not yet leveling out. That said, it should be noted that according to comScore (SCOR), whose search data are most highly regarded by Wall Street, Bing never lost search market share in the U.S.

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.
