I have noticed over the years how most of my success comes from yahoo and people who have found my sites on yahoo, however the amount of traffic that comes from Yahoo is only 10% around 80% of traffic comes from Google.
As a webmaster I spend a lot of my time on Google search, Id assume that the majority of webmasters across the world do the same thing.
I think its us webmaster that make Google look big, However the real success comes from Yahoo.
What do you mean by "success"? Is there some way you can tell whether your "paying" customers are from Yahoo and not Google?
Yes you can see this using stats, I use statcounter and have done for the past 8 or 9 years, this shows me the referral link, and exit link, so i can check sales also I can check when people click on ads.
Just wish hubpages would incorporate something similar to statcounter.
I definitely get more views from google. In fact, my views are quite similar to the popularity of the search engines, ie Google first by a long shot, then some Yahoo, and a tiny percentage of bing.com
