Interesting stats on a Brand New Search
New search term

 7:59 pm on Jan 12, 2010 (gmt 0)

I was finally in on a brand new term or search ahead of the game were I was able to buy the .com of the term have content built in advance and take the 2-3 spots behind Gov.

This is a new US Gov mandate changing in the USA beginning at the end of 2010. It effects the largest industry in the US. All that said the news has been getting out for the last 6 months so traffic has been going up and up and up.

Now the intresting part here are the stats from search engines
43.26% www.google.com
32.62% www.bing.com
14.18% search.yahoo.com
the rest are aol, ask etc.

I am kinda suprised at the stats to tell ya the truth. What do you make of the stats.

This is a new term so it does represent a specific industy in the USA but with millions working in this industry I am wondering does Google really have the % of search volume suggested by others.

You could have a large number of Microsoft employees coming in... ;)

Otherwise I'd say Bing is going strong. It could be the business-to-business nature you seem to be describing. I always see more Microsoft products from businesses.

Microsoft employees would be out of this area not even close.

There would also be a more non business people since most would be employees of the different companies, and they wouldn't be using the same net connection from day to day.

Lets just say they are traveling allot.

The only thing I can see that might make a difference is the average age of the user and most not college educated.

I am still very much suprised by the numbers given the 2 variables above I am still impressed with the small % difference.
