ComScore released the June, 2011 results for search engine rankings in the United States yesterday. Google still maintains its lead on almost two to one against all others combined. Almost 66 per cent of all explicit core results started at Google once again, unchanged from May.
Out of 16.7 billion searches, 10.9 billion searches were conducted on Google sites. Where is the chat about Bing and Yahoo cramping their style and taking away market share?
Plus now comes Google + (for those of you who have not heard) entering the social media scene as a Facebook competitor. They are causing such a wow, “I want it!”, “I NEED it!”, “Where’s my invite?” factor by limiting access and stirring up the talk. Hey, it’s free press. Smart marketing move in my camp!
That’s why I will continue preaching if search is the avenue for prospects to find your business Web site through you rsmall business marketing efforts, then you must learn, or continue, to operate within Google Webmaster guidelines. It also provides for good results on Bing and Yahoo as well.
Read the rest of the comScore press release.
Note: Explicit share, according to comScore, are searches where users intend to interact (move on) the search results.
