Economics Snapshot - Google draws away from Microsoft and Yahoo
This BBC report discusses a deal announced between Microsoft and Yahoo.
“Microsoft’s Bing search engine will power the Yahoo website and Yahoo will in turn become the advertising sales team for Microsoft’s online offering”
This is an attempt to compete head on with the growing market dominance of Google in search engine queries but as the chart above shows there is a clear divergence between the market share of Google and the combined market share of Microsoft and Yahoo.
Microsoft and Yahoo’s combined share of U.S. search queries was 28% in June, down from 30% a year ago, according to comScore.
