22 Dec YouTube Now Serves More Search Queries than Major Search Engines
It is no surprise that Google reigns supreme as the most utilized search engine based on November’s search query numbers. More interesting, however, is that Yahoo and MSN, the next most popular search engines respectively, were both outnumbered by YouTube searches. The total number of YouTube searches this November was 2.79 billion, more that the total 2.62 billion searches in Yahoo owned sites. Meanwhile, Microsoft and its sites barely stayed in the game with 1.05 billion searches in November.
Of course with YouTube being owned by Google, this is just another step toward Google’s search monopoly.
