Those numbers suggest a few other things, too:

1 - Junping on new technology vs. loyalty. Mapquest created this domain and clearly owns it - but Yahoo and Google are not in the same club. Yahoo maps has been around for years as a "me-too" and the fact that in less than a year Google almost caught up with them is quite amazing - apparently there is not much loyalty here, people jumped for the sake of better technology.

2 - The other number I find surprising is the 33% overall growth while Mapquest retained their 71%. I would have expected "new" customers to care less about who the market leader is and go to Google in larger %.

It is probably because of all the corporate sites that use Mapquest for their location and directions pages.
