The Future of Search: Quantifying Growth in Generative AI Queries with Comscore Measurement

RESTON, Va. , Nov. 30, 2023 - Comscore, a global, trusted partner for planning, transacting, and evaluating media today released the first results of its new search market collection and reporting of generative AI queries.

Bringing a step change to the core search market, Comscore has delivered enhancements to its syndicated qSearch measurement to introduce the collection of AI search since May 2023 when the first platforms began to be widely used by consumers.

"The introduction of Generative AI search has been a turning point in the development of consumer discovery online and is accelerating enterprise intelligence. Comscore is now measuring AI led search, demonstrating the growth and opportunity we expect to see in this market," said Steve Bagdasarian, Comscore Chief Commercial Officer.

Comscore data released today shows search activity up 5% MoM (October 2023) which now includes generative AI searches in the Core Search universe.

Google remains the leading source for Core Search with more than 60% of the market share. Microsoft was the biggest mover, increasing its total share by 0.7 points (MoM), driven in part by its Bing Chat generative AI search.

Comscore is continuing to explore how AI and other emerging technologies support its mission of providing the most complete view of audiences across platforms and devices, including Proximic, its programmatic targeting division, which leverages AI to power its Predictive Audience offering.
