Search Engine Traffic

Where does your traffic come from? Or more specifically,  which search engine sends you the most visitors? Well, obviously this is a rhetorical question, as I know you will answer Google. Below is the breakdown of traffic sent to one of our sites.

87% of there traffic is from Google–note that is just search engine traffic, not including referrals from other sources. You might say, well, maybe they just rank better in Google than in Yahoo or MSN, but then don’t they pretty much rank in all the main engines for roughly the same keywords. It just seems that Google gets so much more traffic that it is reflected in how much it sends our way.

So Google is still King and it seems it will stay that way for the foreseeable future–which means that you’d better play by their rules, because if you lose your rankings in Google, then you lose your traffic.
