Bing still gaining share, but growth tapering

Not sure how meaningful the week-by-week Bing reports are from comScore, but Microsoft’s remodeled Web search engine continued to grow in its second week.

Microsoft’s “average daily penetration among U.S. searchers” reached 16.7 percent in the week of June 8-12, up 3 points from the week prior to Bing’s launch, comScore reported this morning.

Microsoft’s overall share of U.S. grew to 12.1 percent during the week.

But the rate of growth seems to be slowing post-launch: The share grew 2.1 percent in the first week since Bing’s launch, and 0.8 percent in the second week. I wonder if fear of Bing is still gripping Google
