Google closes in on 70% of search market share

searchenginewatch is reporting that Google is really a force to be reckoned with in regards to search.

"In October, Google smashed its own search engine market share record, accounting for 66.9 percent of all searches conducted in the U.S., comScore reported. Microsoft’s Bing also had a record month, hitting a less spectacular though still noteworthy 16 percent share.

Prior to hitting 66.9 percent in October (up from 66.7 percent in September), Google’s previous record was 66.8 percent, which it hit in both June and July of this year. In October 2011, Google’s search market share was at 65.4 percent.

Bing, meanwhile, continued its slow and steady accumulation of market share, growing from 15.9 percent in September to 16 percent in October. In October 2011, Bing’s market share stood at 14.8 percent."
