Google's Search Shares Increase Upwards in October

According to Nielsen as reported by CNET and according to comScore as reported by BusinessWeek, Google search shares went up for the month of October.

Nielsen reports that Google's search went up 8.1 percent (to a total of 61.2 percent). comScore's findings were similar: Google now has a 63.1 search share (up from 58.5 percent from last year).

Not surprisingly, Hitwise shows a higher Google search share of 71.86%.

But some think that Google has only a little to celebrate. After all, after Google opted users into SearchWiki (which I call SearchIcky), they think the users won't accept the change (since Google should be fair and make that an option not a necessity).

That Google SearchWiki thing might help shift some people back to Y!, MSFT & others.

Heck, maybe Google will see that people don't want it and should give us the option to choose whether we do.
