Google garnered 37.6 percent of all U.S. search queries on the Internet during the second quarter of this year, according to comScore Networks. This is the largest number of queries Google has had in a quarter since comScore began compiling its search engine reports in December 2003.
Google takes the first spot with 5.65 billion search queries in the US, followed by Yahoo with 4.65 billion queries and a 30.4 percent market share. MSN is third with 2.39 billion queries, 15.6 percent of the market, AOL/Time Warner has 9.2 percent of the market with 1.41 billion queries and Ask Jeeves is fourth with 934 million queries or a 6.1 percent share.
While Google's market share increased from the first quarter, when it was 35.9 percent -- as did Ask Jeeves' share, which climbed from 5.3 percent, and AOL's, which jumped from 9.1 percent -- Yahoo's share dropped from 31.2 percent and MSN's from 16.3 percent.
