Bing gains more ground in July, this time on Google


After a huge launch in late May and an $80 million publicity push, Bing continued to gain search engine market share, according to Web tracker StatCounter. This is the second consecutive month that Bing has showed growth.

But July looks different in one key respect. According to the numbers, Bing wasn't picking flesh off the carcass of the soon-to-be shut down Yahoo! (YHOO) search. No, Bing was stealing users from the big kahuna, Google (GOOG), as explained by the social media blog Mashable.
