    This is how search engine referrals to my site breaks down over the past 12 months. With the new Yahoo search, this past month MSN has passed Yahoo and both are now at ~9%: My main page has had a PR5 for all this time, other pages are mostly PR4.

    Google 78.6%,
    Yahoo 10.3%,
    MSN 3.3%,
    Altavista 1.9%
    All the rest combined 5.9%

    I think this is typical. Maybe buying a paid listing in the Yahoo directory would help, maybe not...

    Actually save the cash and wait for the Paid for Inclusion program to start up on the 15th (Thursday)

    What programming language do you use for the site (HTML, ASP, PHP, etc.)????
