Bing Continues to Boom, At Google's Expense

The August 2009 search rankings by comScore are out and the news continues to be good for Bing. Microsoft sites grabbed an additional 0.4% share. Meanwhile, Google lost 0.1% share as did AOL, which is powered by Google search. Yahoo! and Ask.com remained steady.

This brings Bing's market share gains since launch to 1.3% and Google's loss since Bing's launch to 0.4%. (See July and June data for reference.)
