Last week, I shared some statistics about search share for October from Experian Hitwise. Nielsen Wire also has stats to share, with a new blog post about online search providers.  They too put Google at the top, with the biggest percentage of searches, while Yahoo and Bing still fall second and third, respectively.

Search Engine Share of Searches
Google 66.1%
Yahoo 15.4%
Bing 9.7%
Ask 1.7%

Excerpts from Nielsen Wire

But while Experian Hitwise reported that Google’s and Yahoo’s percentages fell, and Bing’s search share increased, Nielsen tells a story that’s a bit different. Google gained 2% , and it was Yahoo and Bing that each lost a point.
