June Search Numbers: Microsoft Growing, Yahoo Dropping

Compete.com released their monthly search percentage numbers and has Microsoft making the biggest gains year over year and Yahoo showing the largest drop.

Microsoft had more than a 67% increase over their search share from last month and more than 48% from June numbers in 2006.

Yahoo has lost 16% since the same month last year and failed to improve on last month’s numbers. Google increased its 55% share from last year to 62% this June, but dropped from May’s 67%.

Part of Microsoft’s increase has been attributed to their online gaming requirements of coming through their Live Search Club. The games involve using search to gain points for products, Compete noted.
