load of old wazzock
Seriously, does anyone ever takes these stats, err, well, seriously? My own stats show a completely different story about peoples search habits and which engines they use. Of which 7% come from Yahoo and Bing combined.
You can rest assured that 98% of the web savvy western world use Google, the ROTW i.e the elderly, the under 7's and those that have been forced to use it through other means where Google may not be available, use Yahoo/Bing as it is there to be used. Does marketing to the elderly, below 7's and computer stoopid sound like it will make good use of your marketing budget?
Nope- The figures are meaningless and MS are up sh|t creek and praying to some dead god for a miracle if they think their interpreted 30% might turn them a profit.
Face it MS, you lost the search wars, time to concentrate on your O/S.
