Here’s the new data from comScore:

comscore 1

These traffic data don’t capture local search on the main search engines, which is where much of the local query volume is.

    Greg – what all is included in “Yahoo sites” and “Google sites” in the first chart? Are they counting each local/maps vertical site?

  3. Greg Sterling Says:


    My memory is that that the count Google Maps and Y Local (although may be included in the yahoo numbers). Local searches on and are not counted in this particular report.

    It’s most useful when comscore blends the results as they did in 2006 , so one can see the entire local landscape broken down… I guess that one is tougher to sell. Google and Yahoo were virtually tied at that time. It would be interesting to see that view again.

    I agree, it’s more useful to see everything in context.

    I wonder of comScore was including some mobile data in this data? Particularly for Google and Yahoo…

    I don’t think there’s any mobile data in here at all, unless they can’t determine the source of the queries, which would be surprising. There’s only one source (iPhone/Safari) that’s doing any volume in mobile right now.
