It can be said that Google search is the most used search engine in the world at the moment. According to Statista, Google search accounted for about 84 percent of all search engine traffic in 2022, with Bing a distant second at about 9 percent of the market and Yahoo in third at 2.5 percent. We’ve always known this, and so governments and users alike have questioned the dominance of Google Search worldwide. Players such as Bing, Yahoo, Yandex, and Baidu all share the 15 percent market share and some believe this is because Google may engage in anti-competitive practices.
But Google Search is very simple to use and provides a wider range of results than its competitors and let’s face it, that’s the company’s main line of business and it only makes sense that they dominate in this area. Google only began diversifying into other services a little over a decade ago, since its launch in 1998.
Today, Alphabet, the parent company of Google, has a market capitalization of over $1 trillion and dominates the online advertising space with a 29 percent market share.
There’s no doubt that Google is big, and that’s when ChatGPT was launched by OpenAI, it became the talk of the town. It got more than 1 million users in just five days and continues to grow till now. It has grown to the point where its developers are now releasing a premium/paid version to allow usage control of some sort.
The fun way it works has drawn professionals and casual users alike to the new technology that many have described as the Google competitor we’ve all been waiting for. Microsoft, developers of the Bing search engine and one of Google’s main competitors, quickly jumped into the news by announcing investments and other forms of support and saying it would integrate it into its Office suite immediately. Some reports suggest that Google insiders have become somewhat alarmed by the new technology and have called in “heavyweight” co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin to step in so that together they can make the world’s beloved ChatGPT search.
But can ChatGPT work with Google even though some Google engineers contributed code to its development? ChatGPT is an effectivel chatbot and Google is a web search engine but here are the main differences between the services.
The main differences between Google and ChatGPT
ChatGPT and Google Search are two different tools that are used for different purposes.
ChatGPT is a language generation model that is trained on a large dataset of text. It can be used to generate text based on a specific prompt or input. It can also be set to perform tasks such as translating language, answering questions, and completing text. It can generate human-like text, but it may not be accurate or appropriate for a specific task, since the quality of the output depends on the quality and size of the training data.

On the other hand, Google search is a search engine that crawls the internet to index web pages and then returns the most relevant results to a user’s query. Google Search uses a complex algorithm to determine the relevance of a web page to a user’s query. The algorithm takes into account factors such as the relevance of the content on the web page, the authority of the site, and the number of external links pointing to the site.
In terms of speed, Google Search is faster than ChatGPT, because it searches indexed web pages and returns the result in milliseconds, while ChatGPT generates text based on input which can take longer.
When it comes to accuracy, Google Search is generally considered more accurate than ChatGPT, because it returns results relevant to a user’s query, while ChatGPT’s output may not always be accurate or relevant. However, ChatGPT can generate more creative and varied scripts, while Google search mostly returns web pages that match the user’s query.
In terms of usability, Google Search is designed to be simple and easy to use, with an intuitive interface that allows users to quickly find what they are looking for. On the other hand, ChatGPT requires a certain level of technical knowledge to use it effectively.
In short, ChatGPT and Google Search are two different tools that are used for different purposes. ChatGPT is a language generation model that can be used to generate text, while Google Search is a search engine that provides relevant results in response to a user’s query. Both have their strengths and can be used in different ways depending on the task, but Google Search is generally considered to be more accurate and faster, while ChatGPT can generate more creative and varied scripts.
In conclusion, ChatGPT is an interesting technology tool with the potential to change the way we do things by helping to speed up tasks and helping with some complex tasks, but Google is doing so well more than this might not happen anytime soon.
