I have been visiting CNN’s website for years. Rarely do I pay much attention to their polls, but today their poll catch my eye. The poll questions was “Which search engine do you use?” and the answer was Google. No surprise there for many of us, although I was surprised by how low Bing really was on the usage chart.
As of this posting, 198,584 people voted and their results are fairly close to what we see on other websites and analyst reports.
Website Usage Results
Search Engine Percentage Votes
Google 85% 168,166
Yahoo 8% 15,687
Bing 4% 8,419
Other 3% 6,312
CNN’s poll clearly shows that the website readers use Google more than any other search engine. While Fox News may find a bit different results, I doubt it would stray very far from that of CNN’s. Google is by far the major player in search and none of us can dispute this dominance. It makes you wonder what Yahoo and Bing will or even can do to make the battle a little closer.
