Bing and Yahoo U.S. search share both up in March

Microsoft’s search sites — primarily Bing — continued to inch up in its U.S. search share last month, while even Yahoo, which has seen its share decline steadily over the past months, saw a slight increase.

According to research firm comScore, Microsoft’s share of U.S. searches in March was 16.9 percent, up from 16.7 percent in February and from 15.3 percent a year ago.

Yahoo’s share in March was 11.8 percent, up from 11.6 percent in February and down from 13.7 percent a year ago.

Market-dominating Google declined slightly from 67.5 percent of the market in February to 67.1 percent in March. In March 2012, it held 66.4 percent of the U.S. search share.

Here’s comScore’s chart:
