Bing up in US but down in Europe because of Seznam
Internet monitoring company StatCounter this week displayed results showing that Bing saw again an increase of market share in the US. With a market share of 9,41% in July they were up 1,18% compared to a month earlier.
In Europe Statcounter provides these numbers when it comes to market shares in July 2009:
The reason for this remarkable growth is not clear, so it is not clear either if we should 'believe' the numbers Statcounter is giving us.
The numbers do suggest that compared to Google Bing is also gaining market share in Europe. This is remarkable because Bing in most countries still uses the 'old' Live Search and doesn't have the features the US does. Only in the UK users get more functionalities. That doesn't really show in the user statistics so far, only a growth of 0,01%. Though in the UK Google is losing slightly, 0,28%.
In other countries Bing's growth is minor as well, 0,12% in Germany, no growth in France and even a small decline (0,05%) in the Netherlands.
The Google dominance stays big in Europe, but July was a month with some movement in the market. Though the movement was minor.
