Yandex Rated Fastest Growing Global Search Engine

ComScore has released a study of the global search market showing that more than 113 billion searches were conducted in July 2009, representing a 41% increase versus year ago. As expected Google was No.1 with 76.7 billion searches conducted, or 67.5% global market share. However the Russian portal, Yandex showed the fastest rate of growth with 94% more searches than July 08.

LiveInternet, the Russian statistics site also gives positive news for Yandex, showing that they hold 51% market share against Google’s 30%. This figure is boosted by the continued rise of Mail.ru (10%), who uses Yandex search results to power their portal.

My friend Andy Atkins-Krüger has written an excellent summary today on why Yandex is doing so well (SearchEngineWatch.com).
