Search Engine Statistics

Last Updated on: January 12th, 2024

Search engines play a crucial role in the way people access information and navigate the internet. According to recent data, Google continues to be the dominant player in the search engine market, with a market share of over 90%. However, other search engines, such as Bing and Yahoo, have also seen growth in recent years, as people explore alternative options. In addition, the rise of voice-activated devices and the increasing popularity of virtual assistants, such as Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home, have changed the way people search for information. These developments have significant implications for businesses and marketers, who must now consider the role of voice search in their search engine optimization (SEO) strategies. As technology continues to evolve and shape the way people access information, it will be important for companies to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and developments in the search engine market.

Here is a collection of some of the most interesting search engine statistics and facts I have stumbled across in my internet travels. Posts here cover both individual companies as well as the industry as a whole.
