Bing notches up another percentile point over Google

Microsoft’s Bing search engine has scored a minor victory over Internet search giant Google, hitting 13.1% search through January, which came at Google’s expense as the latter fell to 65.6%. It seems that this was partly achieved due to Bing aping Google’s personalized search. According to ComScore, this is Bing’s greatest single-month boost since it was unveiled to the world in June two years ago, when the service stood at 8% then. If the same trends were to continue, this would mean Bing will finally catch up with Google in what, 30 years time? Yahoo hasn’t just rolled over and died though, as their share hit 16.1% in January from 16 percent the prior month – any increase is a good one, right?
