Google Search Continues to Smash Competition

Could the Microsoft-Yahoo flap be irrelevant in the end? CNET News reports that Google’s steadily increasing search share neared 70 percent in June in the United States, according to new figures released Tuesday by Hitwise.

The report said that Google’s share increased from 68.29 percent in May to 69.17 percent in June, while Yahoo fell from 19.95 percent to 19.62 percent and Microsoft fell from 5.89 percent to 5.46 percent. Google has been over 60 percent since the middle of 2006. Carl Icahn can’t possibly be happy about this, either.
