Yahoo! Loses All Its Market Share Gains

Yahoo! Loses All Its Market Share GainsThe search deal did not come to a rescue.

Last year, Google and Mozilla did not come extend the search agreement, and as a result, Yahoo! became the default search engine in Firefox.

While at first Yahoo! experienced a pretty healthy increase in its market share numbers (where even Google was concerned as it begged users to switch back), it looks like the gains did not hold. According to the most recent data, for October, Yahoo’s global usage share was actually at a new low, 7.6%, down from 10.2% (January 2015).

As far as the US numbers go, they are down too, from the 13% peak that happened in January, 2015, to 12.5%.

That’s all for now, folks.

    LoL, who actually uses Yahoo nowadays? If DuckDuckGo and Bing gave me relevant results as Google did, I’d happily dump it for either.
