This is a question for all those US people who have asked about the top UK engines.

For me (travel & real estate focus)

MSN
Google
Yahoo and it's google.
AOL
GoTo (that's right, the FREE part, INK is now my #5 -bumping AV)

Note: I think I'd be better off if AOL were in the #2 slot, I don't rank as high with them as I do in Google and Yahoo.

For me (geek related - traffic wise):

1: google
2: google.yahoo
3: lycos
4: aol
5: alta
6: msn

fast, nl, wisenut, odp, excite, looksmart, teoma. Yep, more referrals so far this month from WiseNut, than the $1200 in Looksmart listings.

Depends what you mean by "top engines." What I'm getting at is that I think ODP, a directory, is extremely important in the mix, as it affects ranking on a bunch of engines that everyone agrees are top engines. Almost no one searches on ODP itself.

1. Google
2. MSN
3. Yahoo-google
4. Yahoo search
5. Altavista

Oddly enough, Yahoo-google has been out-referring regular Yahoo search, new phenomenon with increase on Google.
