It's still too early to claim Google has peaked, but the No. 1 search engine lost market share in June, while Microsoft gained.

"Google has a tendency to see share declines during the summer, driven in part by vacations, fewer work days, and reliance on academia from its core user base," said comScore spokesperson Andrew Lipsman via e-mail, noting that Google and Yahoo both saw increases in query volume in June and that Google's "share decline is really a function of the disproportionate increase at Microsoft this month."

The overall volume of U.S. search queries reached 8 billion in June, up 6 percent from May and 26 percent from June 2006, according to statistics released today by Internet metrics company comScore.

Google's share of the growing U.S. search market declined from 50.7 percent in May to 49.5 percent in June.

Yahoo's share of the U.S. search market showed a similar decline, dropping from 26.4 percent to 25.1 percent during the same period.

Ask's U.S. search share remained unchanged at 5 percent.

Microsoft's United States search share rose from 10.3 percent to 13.2 percent, "due in large part to Live Search Club, a program launched by Microsoft in late May to engage and reward users of Live Search," comScore said.
