Google Reaching a "Topping Point"

Brett Tabke posted a story at WebmasterWorld named Google's Share of US Internet Search Market Drops In July.

"We think (the) loss in domestic market share could signal a topping point" for Google, he wrote. "We do not expect Google's aggressive market share gains to continue in perpetuity."

According to comScore, 43.7% of all search queries conducted in the U.S. in July used a Google search engine, down from the 44.7% attributed to Google the month before.

Meanwhile, Google's loss was its competitors' gain.

Brett backs Google explaining that "a 1% difference is well within a margin of error." Moderator, skibum, also takes a gab at ComScore's metrics, "how reliable is Comscore data anyway?"

However, moderator, receptional says;

I think their indication will be proved right. I think other indicators will start to reinforce this. The quality of the competition's products - especially search - are developing apace and I think Googke is trying to diversify in so many different ways at once that they might start to lose the hearts and minds battle.

So what do you think?
