Google's Competition is One Click Away

You might remember the strange incident from January that made Google's search results pages almost unusable for 30 minutes by flagging all the search results as malware. The incident is now Google's favorite example to show that its search engine is not a monopoly and competition is one click away: Yahoo's search volume has doubled before Google fixed the error.

A study from 2008 showed that 55% of the US Internet users have more than one regularly used search engine.

The two slides are from a Google presentation titled "Google, Competition and Openness" [PDF], obtained by Consumer Watchdog, an organization which claims that it managed to debunk Google's affirmations.
