Google is king
« on: 05-01-2010, 04:01:39 »
Can anyone rival google?  It seems like I should spend most of my time optimizing for Google because of how often it is used compared to Yahoo or Bing.  Do you get most of your traffic from google for your website?

I run about 5-6 sites and all of them get most of their traffic from google. I'd say maybe 10% of the traffic is made up of Bing/Yahoo search users.

Bottom line, stick to optimising for google as it's the best paying traffic out there.

Gotta say google kicks ass, and for the most part if you follow their rules they treat you well. I have however had good traffic from yahoo on occaissions, so don't rule them out. Just have your primary focus as google

Google is the only search engine that most need to optimise for the rest are rubbish and will only ever give you very limited traffic.

Pretty much everyone and most of the users that actually click on ads etc use Google, making it the only choice for any serious webmaster... If you look at other search engines, expect dismal results.

google is and always remin king for a long time. There are very few that can comete. Unless someone comes up with a completely outlandish idea of a search engine. Until we can just sit back and admire Google.

A couple of years ago Yahoo and Google had a close rivalry, but I think now google has pretty much left everybody else behind. I get most of my traffic from google.com.

I don't think there's much point in optmizing for any other site than google. Cause most of the traffic will flow in from there so it's best to do so. Yahoo and bing also bring in some traffic, google remains the king.
