Google and Bing up slightly in April search rankings; Yahoo down

Research firm comScore has released its April rankings of U.S. search share and the results aren’t dramatically different from last month.

Google and Microsoft’s sites — primarily Bing — went up 0.1 percentage points each from March, with Google taking 66.5 percent of searches in April and Bing 15.4 percent.

Yahoo dropped 0.2 percentage points, from 13.7 percent in March to 13.5 percent in April.

It will be interesting to see if Bing’s big overhaul, which will include a design change and more social search results, will result in more dramatic changes.

Here’s comScore’s chart:
