    Google: 114.7 billion searches, 65.2% share
    Baidu: 14.5 billion searches, 8.2% share
    Yahoo: 8.6 billion searches, 4.9% share
    Yandex: 4.8 billion searches, 2.8% share
    Microsoft: 4.5 billion searches, 2.5% share
    Others: 28.7 billion searches, 16.3% share

    This is interesting because when the BIG DIP happened last August and September, everyone was writing blog posts about how Google (and SEO) were dead... This shows that it was a short-lived dip and the volume came back...

    If not search, then what? What was going on in August? Increased usage of mobile apps?

    Further proof that you can't stop the Google machine.

    Google will one day take over the world. Then again, haven't they?

    And yeah, I knew that Google wasn't going to be dying out anytime soon, even last August and September.
