Bing growing in popularity

Written by Nick Farell

Google is still king
Research from Experian Hitwise shows that Microsoft's Bing search engine grew in popularity throughout July  but Google still dominates the search engine market in the UK.

Bing searches  grew by 0.96 percent, accounting for 3.84 percent of all searches conducted in July. The popularity of Microsoft search engines was also seen to have experienced a year-on-year increase of 0.67 percent. It means that Microsoft has overtaken Yahoo as the UK's second most popular search engine.

Google's monthly share of searches fell by 0.98 percent in July and by 0.56 percent compared to the same period last year. Bing has a hell of a climb if it wants to overtake Google, which retained 91.04 percent of all searches in the UK in July.

Federal Trade Commission lawyers, in conjunction with several state attorneys general, have been asking whether Google prevents smartphone manufacturers that use its Android operating system from using competitors' services.
