Google 32%
Yahoo 25%
AOL 19%
MSN 15%
ASK 3%
Other 6%

According to a recent survey Google's reputation as the world's most powerful and popular search engine is still holding true. The survey followed the habits of millions of English-speaking Internet users in the US, Canada and the UK and has produced two sets of user-frequency numbers. The first chart (left) shows the percentage of Internet users who conducted their searches at a specific search engine by typing a URL into the address-bar of their browser.

Google 76%
MSN 15%
ASK 3%
Others 6%

The second set of figures shows the actual distribution of search results based on which search tool is feeding results to the others. Google remains the clear leader in the distribution of search results with over three-quarters of all search engine listings being by Google. The results of the survey may appear a bit strange until one recalls that Google powers results from many other search engines, Yahoo, AOL, Netscape and dozens of others.

If your website is not listed by Google, it is missing traffic. Pacific Websites can put your site in the top listings on Google, and you will get more visitors. Call us today.
