Google snatches search share in August

The most powerful search engine gets all the more so from July to August, according to ComScore.

It's a familiar pattern: another month, another increase in Google's search market share.

Internet users performed 11.7 billion searches in the U.S. in August, choosing Google 63 percent of the time, according to ComScore's monthly analysis released Thursday. That's an increase of 1.1 percentage points from 61.9 percent in July, the analyst firm said.

Yahoo slipped from 20.5 percent to 19.6 percent, and Microsoft slipped from 8.9 percent to 8.3 percent.
