Despite its partnership with Microsoft, Yahoo’s search share continues to dip, as its rankings in comScore’s “May 2014 U.S. Search Engine Rankings” is likely to hit below the 10 percent mark, according to SearchEngineLand.
SearchEngineLand bases its prediction on the comScore’s rankings last month, when Yahoo only managed to record a 10% share, down 0.1 percent from March. In contrast, both Microsoft and Google registered a 0.1% increase from March.
If the predicted ranking of Yahoo on the next comScore report comes true, it will represent the lowest recorded search number for the pioneering search engine since comScore started making the reports.
Yahoo’s rankings are a far cry from its 19.3 share of the US market in July 2009, when its partnership with Microsoft was announced. While Microsoft’s search share steadily rose, Yahoo’s continually declined over the years.
