Yahoo reached a 5 year high in their US search market share. Mozilla and Yahoo brokered a deal making Yahoo the default search engine for Mozilla’s Firefox web browser. Based on recent search statisitcs from StatCounter we see a change in the US Search share. Within a month Yahoo realized a 1.8% increase in their search share after the Mozilla deal.
This jump may be very temporary as some users are expected to switch their browser’s default setting back to Google.
