LAS VEGAS — The biggest search engine in the world, Google, may not be interested in owning Australian media, but that’s not stopping the search engine from continuing to grow in the country.
Google’s search engine, owned by Alphabet Inc., has grown its search market share in Australia by over 5 percent, according to data from market researcher eMarketer.
It now has over 100,000 Australian search queries a day, or about 40 percent of the entire Australian search market.
Google has a huge presence in Australia, with more than 5,000 employees in the region.
In the country, Google has a presence in more than 30 media markets, including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.
Google recently announced it will open up its Australian operations to other media companies.
Google is also opening up its search algorithm in other markets around the world.
In November, Google announced a global partnership with Yahoo Inc., which it acquired in 2017.
Yahoo is owned by Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.
Alibaba has been the biggest player in China for the past few years, as the internet giant has expanded its search and data offerings.
Google said it will be a “key partner” in the new Yahoo partnership, and Yahoo has been expanding its reach into Australia, where it has an estimated 15 million users.
Yahoo said it was committed to helping Google expand its Australian footprint.
Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer said in a statement the Yahoo partnership will “expand our relationships with media and tech companies across the globe.”
Yahoo, which also owns online retailer Amazon.com, said in an email that it’s looking to expand its reach in Australia with “a strong focus on the local market, and will continue to support Google in the Australian search marketplace.”
In addition to its Australian and international search partnerships, Yahoo is also expanding its presence in the United States and Europe.
Yahoo’s US division will become the parent company of its US search business, and Google will expand its search footprint in Europe, which includes Britain, Ireland, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands.
Yahoo recently announced a partnership with US search giant Google to partner with the search giant on the company’s search results.
In February, Google agreed to buy Motorola Mobility for $13.7 billion in cash and stock.
The deal is expected to close by the end of the year.
