I just read an eye opening article from Web Pro News. Google is on pace to reach 75% of the Search Engine audience by mid 2009! This is just astounding.
I’ve heard numerous internet marketing consultants talk about using all of the search engines so no one gets left behind. I don’t know how much I’m going to listen to that advice. Yahoo is slowly decreasing with their search engine traffic and no other searc engine is even close.
You had to know this was going to happen sooner or later. The word google has been transformed into a verb in the english. “Just Google It” I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard this phrase.
So let me ask you, why are you not doing everything you can to get high placement on Google? If 70% of the all internet users use Google to search online then don’t you want to be found by the masses?
When it comes to Search Engine Optimization lets focus on Google first, then Yahoo and we will have covered most of search engine traffic. Face the facts if you’re getting high placement on Google & Yahoo then you’re going to get good placement on all of the other search engines as well.
