Wired says Google+ is “growing at Facebook speed”. It’s a great headline, but what does it mean for businesses?
One of the things we do at T324 is follow industry news, like developments in search engine market share. The SEO trend website searchenginewatch.com recently reported that Bing powered 25.3 percent of organic searches in August; Bing’s market share is now considered to be 15.9 percent. 68.8 percent of organic searches were performed through Google. (Although this data doesn’t figure in mobile searches, and most mobile search is performed on Google.) If you’re like me and tend to think of the war for search engine dominance as long since won by Google, these figures are surprising.
