Google Search Still Growing

Mike Arrington:

Of the 137 billion estimated total searches performed in the U.S. last year, 85 billion were done on Google. What’s even more impressive is that nearly 90 percent of all the growth in search volume was also captured by Google. Most of that growth came from increasing the number of searches per person, rather than bringing more people to Google.

Wait, but Sarah Lacy told me just last week that Google has been dethroned because no one stays on top for more than four years and because Twitter is growing.
