Last week:

Google 60 %
Yahoogle 8 %

I never have listed for the Looksmart and Yahoo directory listing, seeing Brett's listing I wonder if I should?

Brett I am glad I am not the only one heavily dependent on Google - Do you have a well described and frequent Looksmart directory listing at the moment?

Brett can you unveil your Directhit succes secret !

My figures for Google to yahoogle traffic tie in with Eric's (for both the .com and the .uk versions) at somewhere between 3 & 4 to 1.

It is worth noting that google will often list 2 pages from one site whereas yahoo will only list one. Quite often you will get 2 referals for the price of one with google. This will skew the figures and make Google traffic look even more impressive than it already is (clever :))

Has anyone ever attempted to measure the percentage of double clicks you get with Google ?

I guess it could be as high as 50%

billy

you've got some pretty high Google numbers, but I doubt anyone will match our google-yahoogle combination (frightening as it is)

Last week

66.72% Google
22.41% Yahoo/Google
06.72% MSN
01.13% Lycos
01.04% Altavista
etc.

You'll notice the combination of Google and Yahoo/Google comes to 90.13% of our referrals. Yikes!

Time to put Plan B into operation.

Sorry Alecto 92.61% Google/Yahoogle - highly specialised technical site. We are not really looking to target the home user so do not optimise for portal.

Please let people start using Teoma.

For a regional travel site, March 2002:

google.com/search (PageRank #1, mucho incomming link + ODP: 30% of referals)
msn.com/results.asp (got in LS before it became L$)
yahoo.com/bin/query (5.4 pages per visitor)
google.com/imgres (mucho bandwith, 1.2 page per visitor, alt txt & keyword.jpg working well)
aol.com/dirsearch.adp (thank you ODP)
www.google.ca/search (to be so high, Google must now have a big share of search in Canada)
ref from our 1 page .net version of our site, which we submitted to yahoo directory after waiting for months for the .com to be listed, 6.1 page/visitor
altavista.com/sites/search/web (not strong but not dead yet)
yahoo.com/bin/search
dogpile.com/texis/search (probably our overture listing)
lycos.com/main/default.asp
www.google.de/search (without a single german word on the site!)
