Bing and Yahoo failed to wrestle any search market share from Google in March, according to data from comScore.
Measured by volume of searches, the pair lost 0.1 percentage points of share between them, month-over-month, while market leader Google grew its own share by 0.3 percentage points in the same period.
Google's growth appeared to come at the expense of Yahoo, Ask, and AOL, which lost 0.4 percentage points, 0.1 percentage points, and 0.1 percentage points of share, respectively.
Microsoft's Bing engine - independent of partner Yahoo - grew its own share of searches by 0.3 percentage points versus February, meanwhile.
