I've posted the latest comScore search engine ratings for July 2005 on our comScore Media Metrix Search Engine Ratings page. As is usual, Google is the top ranked search engine in the US, based on the share of those searching at the site for the US. Google came in with a 36.5 percent share, followed by Yahoo at 30.5, then MSN at 15.5. Full details on our other page.

That page also looks at how things have changed over the past few months. AOL and Ask Jeeves have both shown some interesting growth patterns.

comScore also released some limited stats about search toolbars driving queries:

  • In July 2005, 11 percent of all US searches were done using toolbars, up from 8 percent the year before.
     
  • Yahoo had the most popular toolbar, handling 51 percent of all toolbar-based search queries.
     
  • Yahoo processed 282 million queries via the toolbar last month
