U.S. Search Statistics: 6 out of 10 searches from Google


- As per Hitwise U.S. search statistics for the four weeks ending 9/9/2006 Google commands more than 60% share of the volume of searches followed by Yahoo! with 23%, MSN 12%, and Ask 4%.

It would be interesting to see the numbers on Google's search share if the volumes of searches from other domains like Google India are also considered.

- Informative guideline for travel search engines and outbound travel operators. There is going to be surge in outbound travel from China and Hong Kong in the next few months with travellers from Hong Kong searching for destinations in South East Asia and Asia Pacific.
