Google (Yawn) Tops in Search Market Share

SearchEngineWatch is commenting on the latest market shares of the major search engines.  The quick results are as of December 2005, Google at 48.8 percent, up from 43.1 a year ago, Yahoo at 21.4 percent, down from 21.7, and MSN at 10.9 percent, down from 14.0 percent.  Search totals jumped from 3.3 billion searches in 2004 to 5.1 billion searches in 2005, a 55 percent increase.  No wonder the ad market has stormed back.  That's where all the eyes are.

In another curious story, is Yahoo really considering giving away or discounting services to get people to use its search engine?  Read about it here.  More from the San Francisco Chronicle here.
