Google keeps Bing, Yahoo at bay in search business

Google is hanging onto its dominant share of the search market, while its competitors inch up and down.

Google edged a bit further ahead in January, going from 66.7% of the search market in December to 67%, industry tracker comScore said.

Microsoft Bing increased its market share by 0.2%, just 0.1% less than Google's increase. However, Bing remains far behind its biggest rival, moving from just 16.3% to 16.5% in the same time frame.

Yahoo, the other significant search player slipped by 0.1%, from 12.2% to 12.1% of the market, according to comScore.

The Ask Network, with 2.8% of the market, and AOL, Inc., with 1.7%, round out the top five search services in January.
