Microsoft breaks through 17 percent share of U.S. search engine market

Continuing its slow, steady climb in search engine  share, Microsoft sites (primarily Bing) broke the 17 percent barrier in April, garnering 17.3 percent of U.S. searches in April, according to research firm comScore.

That’s up from a 16.9 percent share in March and 15.4 percent share in April 2012.

Yahoo’s search share also went up — with the combined total share increase from Microsoft and Yahoo corresponding exactly to how much Google’s share went down.

Here’s comScore’s chart:
