Microsoft’s share of the U.S. explicit core search market remained unchanged between June and July, according to new data from research firm comScore.
Overall, Google Websites led in July with 65.1 percent of the U.S. market, a slight decrease from 65.5 percent in June. Yahoo came in second with 16.1 percent, a tiny uptick from June’s 15.9 percent. Meanwhile, Microsoft stayed steady at 14.4 percent.
