why would yell.com crawl when they only accept paid sugested listings? Not only web sites but business listing in general?

I recently did a check for my own and client sites in Norway and found this to be the marketshare (in Norwegian):

Google - 71,9% *
MSN - 23,4%
Yahoo - 3,9%

*Numbers include (Kvasir/Eniro/SOL).

Hi ,

You can also look at [objectssearch.com...] which covers quite a few countries too.

In Italy, the most important are:

Arianna/Libero (own crawler, results enhanced by Google)
[arianna.libero.it...]

Virgilio (own crawler+directory, results enhanced by Google?)
[virgilio.it...]

Other major SE's/portals are listed by traffic here:
[motoridiricerca.it...]

From five years of running search engines, I don't think that any small, country level search engine can survive purely as a search play. Most have to have an associated directory. The technical costs of running a search engine are lower but the marketing costs are probably even higher now.

Just on the Scottish search engine side of things, it would be possible to build a Scottish search engine, but the above search hybrid idea would apply. At least with a Scottish search engine, the Gaelic [1] is understandable even if the accent is a bit strange. :)

albert, where did you get these numbers from? I can't really confirm them as Google is more in the 85% and Yahoo! in the 5% area.

Hi,
in my country Bulgaria:

dir.bg
gbg.bg
all.bg
hit.bg
data.bg

I suppose only dir.bg is accessible from outside beacause of the good ip nat...talking about yahoo,google and msn,Google is most popular,Yahoo also much but not so and MSN a very little

Best,
