I was looking for information about search engines, usage statistics, and market share. I saw a list of new search engines and old search engines that no longer exist. Most of the ones that are gone were either acquired by one of the bigger guys or just simply gave up and went offline.
How many of the websites that claim to be a Search site are there?
I realize that some may have problems with Google. Some people think that Yahoo gives better results. Some think that Bing gives better results. Bing actually powers the search functionality of Yahoo so you are pretty much getting the same thing as far as the organic results you see. The pay per click ads are usually the same too. People have a preference and will use what they like. I tend to use Google most of the time.
Why do I use Google?
Let’s face it, most of the world uses Google when they search the web. It powers so many devices and websites that it tends to influence the majority of searchers. The interface is simple and fast. I have been involved with Internet Marketing for over 17 years. Making a website able to be found in search..specifically on Google is key to the success of my company, my promotions and my clients. There has been a lot of things happen in regards to the algorithm that is used by the top search engines. Trying to figure what works and what doesn’t can make you crazy and just when you think you figure it out, the formula changes and away you go… or down you go in rankings. My advice is “Don’t think too much on how you look and think instead about content.”
Provide Good Content
Write stuff that someone enjoys reading. As the interaction and readership grows, so will your position in the search engines. Of course, content is not the only that thing factors in the formula, but from what I can tell.. Content is KING! Learn to write as if you were talking to someone and telling them how you see it and you will find that your website will start to rank better in the list and move up in pages.
