Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has maintained its unparalleled lead in the US online search market. In August, out of 19.1 billion explicit search queries, Google Sites ranked first with 12.7 billion, according to ComScore August report. Microsoft Sites maintained the second position with 3.4 billion, that’s just 30% of all Google Sites. This clearly depicts how Google Sites are dominating the US search market in absence of any immediate competition.

The glossy picture, however, also portrays the gloomy side of Google Sites. With almost no improvement in its market share, Google Sites are apparently losing the US search market. Google Sites’ market share dived down to 66.9% in August 2013, with a negligible loss of 0.1%, from 67% in previous month. On the other hand, competitors Yahoo! Sites and AOL, Inc. showed a marginal sign of improvement in their market share by scaling up to 11.4% and 1.3% respectively. These changes don’t show a sizable number of search queries though, Google failed to show much of improvements in numbers too.
