6.7 Billion Searches Performed in December 2006

Earlier this week, comScore released its qSearch analysis – a report on search engine activity - and found U.S. users performed a staggering 6.7 billion searches in December 2006. This is up 30 percent from December 2005.

Of course, Google still leads the way with 47.3 percent of the U.S. search market, followed by Yahoo! at 28.5 percent, Microsoft 10.5 percent, Ask Network 5.4 percent and Time Warner Network 4.9 percent.

What this means in the SEMosphere is if you are not actively optimizing your Website for search engines - big mistake….huge!

Think about it: In one month 6.7 billion searches were performed.
