Hitwise shows MSN Search numbers down in April

The Hitwise competitive intelligence service said today that MSN Search’s U.S. market share dropped to 8.5 percent in April. That’s down from 9.2 percent in March and 12.6 percent in April 2006.

Google continued to grab more market share, coming in at 65.3 percent for April. That’s slightly higher than the month before. And Yahoo! took about 20.7 percent — slightly lower than the month before.

It’ll be a little while before Nielsen//NetRatings and comScore release their measurements for search engines in April. They pegged MSN Search’s market share for March at 10.1 percent and 10.9 percent, respectively.
