The big news in search engines today is that Mozilla is dropping Google as their default search engine when the contract ends in December. They have signed a 5 year deal with Yahoo Search: http://www.theverge.com/2014/11/19/7250 … ch-engine- . Could this mean the end of our search traffic woes? Most of my traffic now comes from Pinterest, Yahoo and Bing. I've become virtually invisible to Google. Looks in January, there will be more searches done in Yahoo. I'm looking forward to an uptick in traffic.
I do like the Bing's interface too, although don't use it regularly. I am also tired of seeing only Pinterest and Blogspot blogs in Google search results. May be we can get some traffic love from this deal. Thank you Caren for posting this.
I work in IT and I can attest to two facts: 1. Most of my users don't know which search engine they are using or even what a search engine is. 2. 99% of my users have no idea that they can change the default search engine in their browser.
I work in IT as well, and while I agree, I will point out that very few people use the search bar at all but rather type in google.com by default and ignore the built in search functionality of their browser.

What changes can I make to increase the falling traffic to my article? My articles are already featured. It has all kind of capsules except video. What kind of changes can I further make to increase the falling traffic?
