Google Slows, Lead Grows

For high-flying Google, even bad days have upsides. The search company last week warned Wall Street that growth is slowing, yet its market share compared with competitors Yahoo, MSN, and Time Warner Network has increased. Internet measurement service comScore Networks put Google's share of the search market at 41.4% in January, up more than 6 percentage points from a year earlier.

The comScore report shows slowing growth in the market. Although Americans conducted 11% more searches in January--5.5 billion of them--than 12 months earlier, that pales compared with the 42% jump from January '04 to January '05.
