    People complain about search engine and search engine traffic but they are still the only type of sites that exist entirely to send their traffic to other sites on the web.

    So these are monthly unique visitor figures, but I'm assuming some search engines get visited by the same visitor more than others, which would be the real figures to look at.

    In other words, all other things being equal, if people return to Wow twice as much than to Aol Search, trying to appease the Gods of Wow for SE benefits would be a wiser move for an IMer trying to obtain free traffic.

        They obviously didn't read my post . . . as it clearly has absolutely nothing to do with search engine optimization.

        Can you tell I'm really frustrated when newly hired mods that know nothing about Internet Marketing jump in and mess things up? It's hurting this forum.

        They did it to me as well and the thread totally died.

        It's getting kind of bad on here man. Mods don't really know what's going on and the flood of spammers.

    In my experience, it doesn't really matter where do you get traffic from as long as the desired results are achieved.

        The list is crazy...

        bing and google overlap in a lot of them.

        some are not search engines.

        some are owned by the same company.

        I miss excite...the good old days!

        You forgot baidu, yandex, which far outdo 80%+ of the list.

        And contenko? That is a one and done search engine.
        One time using it, you're done!

          These are US stats as OP says in the bottom of the list.

          You're right about the overlap. Bing powers both Yahoo and AOL/Wow. I believe Ask.com is not an independent search engine either, although their results are the weirdest pile of garbage I've seen for ages. Webcrawler's idea is to provide results from the major search engines.

          In a nutshell there's two search providers that matter on the US market.

          What's your excuse?

    I can honestly say I have never heard of the "DuckDuckGo" search engine, nor have I had a single referral from that search engine.

    So, how does Google have 70+% of the market?

      Probably overlap. People search at those and then go search on google.

        Alexa is involved so how accurate can it be?

          Mike and Mike: Precisely!

          The longer I exist, the more inclined I am to not trust things of this kind. And I shall continue to do so till I create one of my own. That one, will, of course, be 100% reliable.

          What do those numbers tell you when you don't know if a person used Bing, then went to Google 5 times or vice versa?
