According to Web Pro News,Yahoo got 196.6 unique US visitors and Google got 192.3 million unique US visitors for July of this year. Google should be realizing that they aren't giving the best results. Maybe we should put more of our focus on what Yahoo wants.
Anyone have any ideas what Yahoo wants?
As far as I understand, what google used to want. Lots and lots of faked up backlinks.
I should have added that this isn't search engine traffic only, but includes traffic for Yahoo mail etc too.
I don't really understand how it all works. But I had a friend who had an online business and she said most of her traffic came from writing articles on yahoo. This was about 6 years ago so I don't know if Yahoo still has the same writing platform.
Those figures are for traffic to the websites, not users using the search engines. Yahoo is primarily an entertainment site and Google is not.
Presently, the Google search engine gets 83.13% of market share and Bing gets 14.20% (5.80% directly and another 8.40% through Yahoo). All search results on Yahoo are powered by Microsoft's Bing search engine.
Bing wants the same things that Google does when it comes to search engine results. Here's a link to Bing's Webmaster Guidelines:

Was it Bing or Yahoo that Matt Cutts once proved had scraped it's algorithm? It was a few years ago, I think.
As I recall Google built into their algorithm a specific search result for a specific nonsensical string of characters. What a surprise when (Bing? Yahoo?) showed an identical result! Cutts even posted the search results somewhere for the world to see. Just after, of course, the competition went on record as all aggrieved that they would never, never steal such knowledge - they had their own engineers and didn't need to stoop to industrial espionage. Funny as all get out!

Do you have any hubs where your Yahoo search traffic is more that all the Google searches combined (thats Google with different domains (TLDs))? I have a few, although not many.

If I am getting traffic from dogpile but I have never listed anything with them, could I safely assume that this traffic is from some sort of backlink from someone else? I'm not real savvy in this traffic resource stuff other than reading where it is coming from. Now, I am curous to know...

I have read many forums over the last couple of months on how traffic to HubPages has dropped considerably since July. After much investigation I believe to have figured out what has caused this drop (and I don't think it was the algorithm change).I keep statistics on my keyword performance for...
