The comScore and Hitwise findings of the search engine market share present an interesting data. As per comScore, Google has experienced a below 65% drop in its US market share, for the first time since September 2009. However, Hitwise findings still project Google's market share to be over that 65% mark, though by a very minor margin.

The findings also show Bing to have been experiencing a continuous growth.
comScore findings show Google's share to have fallen to 64.8%, while it stood at 65.1% in July. Among other search engines, shares of Yahoo! and Bing now stand at 16.3% (up from 16.1% in July) and 14.7% (up from 14.4% in July) respectively.

However, Hitwise shows that Google's share has fallen to 65.09%, from 66.05% in July. Yahoo!'s share has grown to 15.89% from 15.07% in July, while Bing's share has grown to 13.10% from July's 12.98%.
