Computerworld - With Google and Microsoft Bing taking slightly bigger bites out of the search market, rival Yahoo is hitting a bit of a slump.
Market analysis firm comScore Inc. is set to announce this afternoon that between September and October, both Google and Bing inched ahead. The increases were far from dramatic but at least they saw increases.
According to comScore, Bing's share rose from from 9.4% to 9.9%. At the same time, Google saw a share bump, moving from 64.9% to 65.4%. While comScore hasn't yet made all the figures available, analysts did confirm that Google in October saw a 17.4% year-over-year increase.
Yahoo, which remains in second place between market leader Google and third-place Bing, didn't have such a strong month. Yahoo saw its share slip, slipping from 18.8% in September to 18% last month, according to comScore.
