Can anyone tell me if there are any big search engines other than the usual global players (GG, Yahoo, MSN, Lycos, Jeeves...).
Also, what kind of market share do each of the above have.
This info would be very helpful!
Market share figures are hard to come by, but in terms of audience reach they are definitely double-digit players.
Google 50% of all search engine referrals
MSN and Yahoo are pretty insignificant in Norway, at least from my perspective.
www.startsiden.no is the largest directory in Norway.
Startsiden is a portal which is composed as a collection of links to almost everything in Norway. Many people use it as their default startpage when opening their browser.
www.gulesider.no is the largest cataloge
Gulesider is Yellowpages in Norway.
www.kvasir.no is largest search engine and uses Google tech.
Kvasir is by far the biggest directory in Norway. It uses Google-results as backfill to their sponsored results.
Just want to make sure that there are no misunderstandings ;)
You can also submit your site to Startsiden and if you`re lucky you might get it included in their index after a editorial review by their staff. (Also non-domestic sites can be accepted)
