ComScore just published the firm’s count for search engine market share in the U.S. for February, and the stats show little change for the major players.
Google (GOOG) had 66.4% of the keyword search volume in the month, up two tenths of a point from the prior month. Microsoft (MSFT) showed a one-tenth-of-a-point rise for its sites, at 15.3%, including Bing. Yahoo! (YHOO) was third with 13.8%, down three tenths of a point. IAC/InterActive’s (IACI) Ask Network was unchanged at 3% and AOL (AOL) was down a tenth of a point at 1.5%.
Interestingly, all the providers fell slightly in terms of their volume total queries except for Ask, who saw its total volume of queries rise 2%, though it remained in fourth place. Google served 17.6 billion U.S. queries, reports comScore, down from 17.8 billion in January.
