According to the latest Nielsen/Netratings data, Google as well as Yahoo showed significant growth over the last month.
This news comes after the seemingly poor performances of MSN, AOL and
ASK. According to the collected data, of the 7 billion searches
conducted online in February, Google managed to snag up more than 50%
while Yahoo managed just over 25% of the online searches.
On the other side of the scale, even with some growth evident in their
figures, MSN, AOL and ASK still only managed single figured results for
the month of February.
"According to these results it’s plain to see that Google and
Yahoo are still the big players in the market. However, worth looking
at, ASK showed a significant growth rate implying that they could soon
become a role player in the SEO industry".
