Google Search Shares Go Down, While Google Video Shares Go Up

Jan 21, 2008 • 9:29 am | comments (1) by | Filed Under Google Search Engine

According to Marketwatch, Nielsen is reporting that Google has only captured 56.3% of the US search market in December compared to 57.7% the previous month. The gain seems to be in Microsoft, which captured 13.8% of the search share compared to 12% the previous month.

But all is not lost for Google, at least in terms of its video properties. CNN Money reports that Google has a 31.3% hold on video, which is substantially ahead of second place, Fox Interactive Media, which only has a 4.4% share of videos. The lowest-ranked video site on the CNN list is with a 0.5% of shares (which is surprising for me, at least, since I see that site often! However, that's mostly through Digg -- and the bottom line is, then, that Digg isn't the only place you should focus your branding efforts upon.)
