Hello Guys, I've the strange case. As I know aol has less then 5% in worldwide search engine traffic and google currently has more then 50%. I've a website which ranks on top 3 places in Aol and in google on the same keywords. but the strange thing is that tha traffic is 10 times more from aol then from google and I expected the vise versa. how is this possible? the term is pure american one. I thought that maybe the data bases differ on aol and on the whole google and they are not same currenlty. Do you have any idea what might be the problem?

I agree with you that this is quite unexpected. I wonder if, even though you see the same ranking on Google and AOL, your site is getting filtered out for many other Google users. Almost seems something like that must be happening.

Tedster, I think the same, it seems that my site is being filtered for other us visitors. but what might be the reason? if the filter is applied, why it is not on the aol and other google databases(on which i can see my site on the same places as on aol), is it possible it is applied on some google databases only? maybe it is just a matter of time, till all the data bases are the same. But if this remains more then a month, I'll not have any explanation. this situation is happanening already 2 weeks. The site is fairly new. If you have any comments, I'll be glad to hear them.
Anyway, partly filter is very strange and maybe it is the matter of data bases, till they are all the same...
