Google in competition with Yandex: taking over Mail.ru
Yandex has the biggest market share in Russia. Their market share is good for almost 55%. Google follows at almost 35% but is likely to make a big step towards Yandex. According to Quintura Google will be taking over Mail.ru and with that taking another 8% market share to move closer to Yandex.
Mail.ru used to be a lot bigger in Russia (almost 40% market share) before Yandex took over from Google in 2006. Now Google steps back in and Mail.ru hopes to get more market share back. Mail.ru will be powered by Google, but for the user it will look like Mail.ru, not Google.
