We all love search

ComScore data released today reveals a massive 61 billion searches were carried out globally in August this year.

The survey is the first time (apparently) that a worldwide figure has been produced and illustrates the continued dominance of Google in the search market.

The top five search engines:

Google - 37.1 billion
Yahoo! - 8.5 billion
Baidu - 3.2 billion
Microsoft - 2.2 billion
NHN - 2 billion

Here in Europe we average around 85 searches a month, compared to 96 in Latin America, 77 in North America and 70 in the Middle East and Africa.

Very interesting! That is some lead by Google on the other so called major players in the search engine world.

My stats for Sept on the TR blog for Search engine referrals.

Google UK 51%
Yahoo 2.1%
MSN Live 2.4%

Rest are international Google search and smaller search engines like Ask.
