Bing Overtakes Yahoo! As the #2 Search Engine

February 9, 2012 Darmini Kara

New figures just released last month, show that Bing (Microsoft sites) has overtaken Yahoo as the second most popular search engine on the Web, according to comScore. Microsoft sites increased their search share by 0.1% compared to the previous month, and interestingly Yahoo decreased theirs by 0.5%. This is in-keeping with the recent move by Yahoo to merge their Site Explorer with Bing's Webmaster Tools, as Yahoo focuses more on paid advertising and Bing focuses on search.
