Yahoo Search Engine and Directory Forum

We rank ok in Yahoo but still results are 1% of G. why?
Is Yahoo really that amount down on traffic?

I just checked some rankings in yahoo and our pages rank well, better in many cases than they do in G where we resort to adwords a lot at the mo.

But if I look at Yahoo referrals from search, we only get 1% of the amount of visitors we get from G. Now I know we do adwords with G and do nothing paid with Yahoo. But can this be right? are eyes on Yahoo that much lower than G?

Definitely, as far as search is concerned. I've seen this on many sites for the last couple of years, great rankings on Yahoo, but almost no referrals.

Shame Yahoo does not have the eyes anymore.
I would like to reduce our reliance on Google.

It could be you rank in different countries in Google, more so than yahoo. For example if you ranked for all google.(whatever) and only yahoo.com you could notice a large difference such as this 1%. Yahoo isn't totally worthless. Just one possible reason of many....

I'm looking at about 10% of search traffic from Yahoo:

Other Search........4%.............4%

My Yahoo referrals are so low that I had almost forgotten that they had a search engine.
I can't be bothered to check my stats at the moment but I would roughly order my traffic as:
1. google (including AOL)
2. type in and bookmarks
3. Bing
4. links
