According to a study by Hitwise that examined all online search engine queries in the U.S. for July, Wikia Search and Cuil took a beating from Google as the world's most popular search engine.
InfoWorld reports that Wikia Search, from Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, managed to wrangle up 0.000079 percent share of the search market in the U.S. at the end of last week. Cuil fared a little better with 0.0070 percent share.
There were high hopes for Cuil when it launched in July, because it was founded by former Google employee, Anna Patterson, and her husband.
But so far neither Cuil nor Wikia Search can hold a candle to Google's 70.77 percent share of the search engine market in the U.S. This makes Google's 10th consecutive record high in monthly search share.
