I receive more visitors from even google-images than MSN and yahoo altogether, although the major KWs I regularly observe are listed quite well in the latter two.
Ive been seeing my yahoo growing and growing over the last couple of months. Up at least 20%. May have something to do with the crummy results for searches on google so people are switching. I know I did for a while.
|May have something to do with the crummy results for searches on google so people are switching. |
I doubt if there's much switching going on, since Google's market share keeps growing, while Yahoo's has been declining a bit in the last year or so (at least if we're to believe comScore Media Metrix).
A more likely explanation is that your rankings have slipped in Google and improved in Yahoo.
Yahoo is the bottom of the barrel.....
Yahoo is always in second place for me, with a fraction of Google's referrals and maybe 75-100% more referrals than I get from MSN.
Google about 80%
msn about 10%
yahoo about 2%
the rest from other links etc
Yet! my robot vists:
Yahoo 53% <---!
My stats on SE referrals:
Google about 85%
Yahoo about 9%
MSN about 3%
The rest of other SE: 3%
My robot visits:
Yahoo about 60% <--- so many visit, so little referrals
Google about 20%
MSN about 5%
Others about 15%
MSN 44 %
Google 30.4 %
Yahoo 12.1 %
With some other sites,
Just looked some site of mine for same ranking keywords on GG, Yahoo MSN plus or minus 2 positions ):
From where I stand, Yahoo does not have much more traffic than MSN in general but I did not looked exactly over all our sites, I just know Yahoo in general is a little better (very little) than MSN and both so far from GG...
rest is total garbage inc. AOL, Ask and dogpile. Other search engines provide less traffic than any link from almost any site.
My referals are almost the reverse of the trend shown on this forum. Since Google's last update I find MSN is my largest supplier, with around 65% of my visitors. Yahoo next with aroun 30% and Google only give me 5%, and they're all rubbish and off topic.
Admitedly, before the update, I was getting masses of good strong hits from Google. The strange thing is that my income from this site is only down by 15% and the emails I'm getting from real clients has gone up. I have always said it and still stick to my guns ... Google hits are mainly from webmasters, scrapers and people looking for free stuff. Yahoo visitors are looking to buy and MSN are info seekers. I'm actually a lot more relaxed this time around and if Google never takes me back, I couldn't care less :-)
All the Best
My Google traffic compared to Y and M is terrible
all due to the fact that no one at Google will take the time to remove a penalty that should not have been imposed in the first place. Reinclusion requests, why I need I'm still not sure, seem to be ignored and emails to G Help...well...At least the other two SE's took the time
to help a Mom and Pop site...the way Google used to.
That is scary because I think I needed to be reincluded due to my traffic from Google being gone and 80% in the supplemental index

Maybe that's true for some topics. It certainly isn't a universal rule.
I've seen a slow rise in all SE. But I started out with big problems in Google (16 month sandbox) and have never seemed to fully recover:
Yahoo - 48%
Google - 41%
MSN - 5%
Ask - 3%
Even Ask is nearly double Google these days.
It's really very sad when compared to last December:
