Bonjour a tous,

just a quick question about SE and Dir in France and any list you guy are aware of to help a future website (seem to remember a list around here - anyone can point me to it? is it still valid)?

Capital (french mag) did a 'paper' on G and they said they had 70%+ of the french market is this right? what are the other SE's? Voila.fr, wanadoo...?

Any forum half as good as WebmasterWorld that you french guys are hanging round? WRI? Any other?

I digged around the archives and found this old 2003 thread:
[webmasterworld.com...]

which gives these numbers:

1 – Google.fr and Google.com, and oters french version : ~54-56%
2 - Yahoo! ~12-14%
3 – Voilà-Wanadoo ~10-12%
4 - MSN ~5-7%
5 - AOL ~4-6%
6 - Lycos ~2-3%
7 - Altavista ~1%
8 - Nomade ~1%

I also checked some of my own stats for a presentation I did a while ago, and found these numbers:

Google.fr ~ 68%
Yahoo.fr ~ 10%
Wannadoo.fr ~ 9%
MSN.fr ~ 5%
AOL.fr ~ 4%

Seems to fit with the 2003 numbers? Don't know if much has changed other than Google taking a even slice of the market?

Hi le_gber,

If you follow this link you will see a list of the top 10 by market share in 2005.

[estat.com...]

For those of you without access to a PDF viewer the top ten is:

1) Google - 81.2%
2) Yahoo - 5.8%
3) Wanadoo/Voila - 4.5%
4) MSN - 2.9%
5) AOL - 2.5%
6) Free - 1%
7) Altavista - 0.5%
8) Tiscali - 0.4%
9) Lycos - 0.3%
10) Club-Internet 0.3%
"OTHERS" make up the remaining - 0.6%

The source for this data is Mediametrie-eStat (May 2005).

Obviously working at Mirago I'd like to point out that we offer a French index, and our traffic is growing fairly steadily. Hopefully you will see us in that top ten by the end of 2006 ;)

Thanks,
Nick
