ComScore released its U.S. search engine rankings for April and the song remains the same: Google saw its share of the market increase 1.8 percentage points, smashing through the 60 percent barrier to 61.6 percent. Both Yahoo and Microsoft saw their slice of the pie again get smaller, declining to 20.4 and 9.1 percent, respectively.
The latest rankings come as Microsoft unveiled a new incentive program to undercut Google and change the Internet search advertising business model. The cashback program is also aimed at getting more people using its commerce search when shopping online.
