Microsoft Exec Claims They Will Have 30% Search Market Share

Kevin Johnson, president of Microsoft’s platforms and services division, said he thinks Microsoft can get a 40% share of the search market in the next 3-5 years, Reuters reported.

“Speaking at a UBS investor conference, Kevin Johnson, president of Microsoft’s platforms and services division, laid out the company’s strategy to become a leader in the growing online advertising industry with a “10, 20, 30, 40” plan.

The plan, which represents Microsoft’s aspirations over the next three to five years, calls on Microsoft to increase the company’s share in Web search, page views, percentage of time on the Internet and percentage of advertising dollars.,” Reuters stated.

Interesting projection given the six percent they have right now. Guess the buy out of Yahoo could be coming after all.
