Microsoft Bing gains on Google

Microsoft Bing has gained some ground in the search engine war, according to the latest statistics from ComScore.

The figures show that Microsoft gained 0.3%, while Google and Yahoo each dropped 0.1%. AOL moved to the bottom of the most popular five engines, losing 0.1% to take 2% of the market.

“More than 16 billion explicit core searches were conducted in November,” ComScore said in a statement. “Google sites ranked first with 10.6 billion searches, followed by Yahoo sites in second with 2.6 billion, and Microsoft sites in third with 1.9 billion.”

But despite Bing’s recent successes, it has a long way to go before it can challenge Google, which was introduced a variety of features including Google Instant to help increase traffic.
