Calm Before the Bing Storm: May 2009 comScore Ranking Remain Steady

Not a whole lot changed from April to May 2009 in terms of core search share, but it will shock no one that Google still saw the biggest benefit. Overall there was a 3% decline in searches, and perhaps Memorial Day weekend had people partying instead of searching.

The biggest change, albeit still a small one, was Google upping its search share by 0.8%.


When looking at expanded searches, everyone takes a hit - except for YouTube, which saw a sweet 4% increase month over month.
