Internet search is big business. Revenue doesn't come directly from search quires for the most part, but comes from ads that are run alongside the searches. Research firm comScore has unveiled the April 2009 search engine rankings for the US.

As you can imagine the top ranked search site is Google, followed by Yahoo, then Microsoft. A distant fourth place goes to the Ask Network, and the fifth place goes to AOL. I am always surprised with all of the hard times Yahoo is seeing that it is able to maintain second place.

Google holds 63.7% of the search market, Yahoo gets 20.5%, and Microsoft has 8.3%. Ask and AOL are a virtual tie at 3.8% and 3.7% respectively. There were 14.8 billion searchers conducted overall online for the month.
