In 2018 Google search engine is ranked as the most popular search engine in Russia with a rate of 49.13%, compared to Yandex that ranked as the second most popular search engine in Russia with a rate of 46.16%. These 2 giants are followed very far by Mail.Ru search engine with a rate of 2.73%, Pam6nep with a rate of 0.74%, and bing search engine with only 0.26%.
In April 2019, Russian internet users are almost completely divided between two search engines which are Google and Yandex. These 2 search engine giants still have the biggest slice of the market cake, according to the Russian company Liveinternet. And in the third place, there is the Mail.Ru search engine who is fighting to stand against by developing its own search algorithm.
