Yahoo sites ranked second with 22.9 percent, followed by Microsoft sites (9.7 percent), Ask Network (4.7 percent) and Time Warner Network (4.2 percent). October saw a 12 percent increase versus September in Americans searching online, bringing the total number of searches to 10.5 billion with the core search engines.

People still use Yahoo as a legacy search engine. Until someone else comes up with a search engine that's as fast, thorough, and plain as Google, it'll continue to be number one. All the bells and whistles the other engines keep trying to add is exactly the reason they're lagging behind and will continue to lag behind.

It's amazing how they can't grasp that concept, though. Those Ask.com commercials kill me.

I'm surprised Yahoo has such a market share. It's not even helped like IE is where it's the default search engine, and neither in the focus of the media buzz like Google.

Yahoo have deals with Opera to be the default search engine in their portable browsers (and maybe their home one, not too sure). They have their own ways of getting noticed.
