Hitwise: Google Dominated Search in October

Hitwise, a competitive intelligence service, has released its October 2007 numbers, indicating that Google dominated the search landscape that month with over 64% of searches performed. Yahoo, MSN, and Ask followed, with numbers at 21.65%, 7.42%, and 4.76%, respectively.

Is Google a monopoly? Forum members wonder. Other forum members dismiss that idea, saying that high market shares are not indicative of any such monopoly. It is, after all, a user preference, and there are few "barriers to entry" at this time.

Another member spots that MSN is performing better than expected. But yet another member has a problem with that. Why is MSN still sending spam-like referrals?
