For the month, Google dropped to 67.95 percent share, down from 69.67 in December 2010.
Bing rose to 12.81 percent from 10.6 the month prior.
Overall, "Bing-powered" search, including Yahoo and Bing, jumped to 27.44 percent from 25.77.
Perhaps more importantly, Bing/Yahoo had a higher search engine success rate, the number of results that actually lead to a visit to a site, says CNet. The Bing-powered sites had an 81 percent success rate, far ahead of Google's 65 percent. Both rates remained practically unchanged from December.
