Yandex superseding Google as search engine

We all know Google has set it's name and is almost an icon to a Search Engine. But recently one statistic showed that Google has become less popular than Yandex.


What is Yandex? It's a popular search engine for Russian Demographic. When I blogged many months ago in China's Context, Baidu is China's most popular search engine. Now, Yandex has taken the search engine market share of 44% whereas Google is only left with 24% in Russia.

The recent tie between Mozilla and Yandex shows that people of Russia are more interested in Yandex and hence Mozilla is removing Google with Yandex as a startup page and search bar on their Firefox browser. Definitely, Yandex Ad revenue sharing with Firefox would have been more lucrative than what Google is offering or may be they are caring about demographic interest.


Thank you for reading my post.
