Yahoo search market share falls to 'all-time low' According to the latest comScore data, Yahoo's search market share has reached an all-time low, at just below 10 percent.
Overall, desktop search declined for the fifth month in a row, as mobile continued to grow at a fast pace.

Yahoo's fall has been anticipated since its "search alliance" deal with Microsoft has led to a combined 29 percent for Bing and Yahoo but has made Bing the priority.

Google remained the clear leader for desktop search, at 67.6 percent, followed by Bing at 19.2 percent and Yahoo at 9.8 percent. All others accounted for 3.4 percent.

The report does not include mobile figures but Google is said to have about 85 percent share of the quickly growing mobile market.

I call crap on Bing's results. I can't tell you how many times I've clicked on what I thought was a story and it was just disguised as a story with Bing searching for the story. If that's how you have to get your numbers up then shame on Microsoft.
