Data from monitoring service StatCounter suggests that Bing, Microsoft’s new search decision engine, has overtaken Yahoo Search as the number two search service in the U.S. and worldwide in large part thanks to stealing market share from leader Google.




The company’s analysis for Thursday finds that in the U.S. Bing overtook Yahoo to take second place on 16.28%, with Yahoo Search currently at 10.22%. For the sake of comparison: Google’s U.S. market share is pegged at 71.47%, and its worldwide share at a whopping 87.62% (vs. 5.62% for Bing and 5.13% for Yahoo).

Are people just test-driving Bing en masse, or does this have anything to do with the fact Bing was forced upon IE6 users (now fixed)? Or is it just because it’s that good and the advertising is already working? Either way, the jump Bing appears to have made since launching merely a couple of days ago is significant, and the drop you see in Google’s share even more so.

I'm certainly enjoying the Bing commercials, enough so that I actually tried it but was disappointed with the results.

I hope they keep dumping money into these amusing commercials though.

I heard the Bing over Yahoo! thing was just a bad calculation, don't remember where I heard it, though.

I loved the IE8 Internet History ad. If you haven't seen it yet, it's here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsMFyo8DWs4 Also the Seinfeld/Gates ads were comic genius. As long as Microsoft continues to give me funny ads, I will continue to use and buy their products.

Wow.

Back on topic: Remeber Cuil? couldn't go a day without hearing abut it well its lost popularity and interest like ad http://www.google.com/trends?q=cuil. Bing will be much more successful for many reasons but I don't think it will overtake Google in search.
