For some time ago I got some questions with regards to the poularity of different SE in Russia, that I could not answer at that time with fresh figures.

Yesterday I found the article with fresh figures which are presented here:

Yandex - 49,46%
Rambler - 22,27%
Google - 12,38%
Mail.ru - 5,12%
Aport - 2,29%

enjoy...

This sounds about right, Yandex.ru and Rambler.ru are top 2. Google is way behind. Mail.ru uses Google's search results, but I don't think Google+Mail.ru come close to Rambler as simple math suggests. Many people also use 2-3 SEs as results sometimes vary a lot.

I think Google might be underrepresented in the statistics above. Pulled this from my logs for a 150 page site in Russian on a dot-com address - Jan 1-Jul 8 2005:

Yandex 3118 (Site ranks #2 for best single keyword)
Google 1586 (Site ranks #5+6 for same keyword)
Rambler 841 (Not in top 100 for same single keyword, but #4 for best phrase)
Google Images 260
Yahoo 224 (Site ranks #9 for best single keyword)
MSN 213 (Site ranks #4 for best single keyword)
Altavista 35 (Site ranks #17 for best single keyword)
Other SE:17
Total SE: 6294

This certainly confirms the strong standing of Yandex and Rambler, but indicates that Google's place is somewhere between them.

rencke, "referrers on 1 site" is not a good gauge to go by IMHO. Google may look a lot stronger because your site is optimized for it - which is why you are on WebmasterWorld in the first place ;) so your site is already "google-biased". Also, with Google you may have traffic spilled from other countries.

There's a lot more to identifying country traffic then a number of referrers or a site position for a specific keyword.

Plus your stats are for 6 month, I presume? That's a 1000/month - a bit small (no offence) to draw statistical conclusions.

Look at Alexa rankings (although I believe alexa penetration is pretty low in Russia, which just means that these sites should in fact rank higher):
Yandex - #363
Rambler - #637

Mail.ru - #380 (but most people are there to check email, not to search)

Google.ru - #1895 (russian version of Google)

Re: rencke
The statistics you see here is not produced based on referers BUT on actual SE use by different people in Russia. So there is no place for Google there beleive it or not.

Aleksl made a good point saying about your site being "google-biased" already /no offence/ :-)
