    Google/bing/yahoo ratio


    I was always wondering is it possible to get more traffic from Yahoo and bing. Obviously, I am struggling with google, but will next
    figures tell you something? I mean, is this ratio equivalent to their share of search markets?

    For example, one of the days last week:

    1. Google: 1274
    2. Bing: 204
    3. Yahoo: 168

    Not necessarily. Google is the biggest one though, so that does make sense.

    Yahoo is actually a tricky topic, and kind of an interesting one.

    Here's the most recent story I could find: https://www.seroundtable.com/yahoo-g...ent-21069.html

    Yahoo is mostly powered by Bing, but almost half of its search results are powered by Google. So they're kind of a hybrid engine. They've switched back and forth between Bing and Google since 2001 I think. 2015 was the first time they started using both at the same time.

    I didn't think they would, but it turns out they do have their own webmaster guidelines and suggestions:

    https://help.yahoo.com/kb/higher-web...k-sln2216.html

    They're kind of short, unfortunately. And, looking them over briefly, they sound pretty similar to what Google would want.

    Bing is more detailed and they even have their own webmaster tools, which are the Bing equivalent of Google Search Console, so you can watch your performance on Bing:

    Just playing catch up on threads this weekend... but here you go...femdom

    Your stats
    using a percentage formula.. this looks very closed to current market share ....

    Google 1274 = 77.3 %
    Bing 204 = 12.39 %
    Yahoo 168 = 10.2 %

    which pretty much matchs up with the following >> the link for below https://www.netmarketshare.com/searc...=4&qpcustomd=0
