    yahoo is probably the second search engine after google. Does anyone get traffic from yahoo? Does it worth the time you register your hub to yahoo?

      Bing is second to Google, not Yahoo, and while many people do see more traffic from yahoo than google, then proclaim it the winner, it is generally because htey got a high ranking in yahoo and not google, they could be losing out on thousands of Google visitors.

      Many people do not realise that the official search engine usage statistics use some pretty popular social networking sites which use the (cheaper) Yahoo back end search systems instead of Google.

    When I search for some of my articles on Yahoo all types of garbage comes up, but they have the same title as my articles. I have not had that problem with Google.

    Just something you said grabbed me, Ofmelancholy.

    "Register your hub."

    You are aware that you don't need to submit or register anything for search engines to pick up your hub, right?
    Hubpages is an authority site, so most of the pages you create, (as long as they aren't too short or something like poetry or a very highly covered subject like 'how to make money online'), will get indexed within 24-48 hours in my experience. Some people try to speed this up by using a site like pingler but I don't bother.

    And back on topic. I get a few hits from google but it varies on subjects. Some subjects get a lot more hits from them. Most of my hits are from google though, with a few thrown in from Bing.

    I wouldn't stress. As long as you get external views, you're all good.

    Yahoo has become a dud for traffic for me the past several months, but I get big traffic from Google so I am not upset. I am finally getting decent traffic from Bing though, especially since Yahoo and Bing are together. Weird it shows them separately. I also get traffic from AOL and several others as well. I have noticed a huge jump in Reddit since the New Digg was unveiled.

      Technically the two are networking, but not really together.

      For now.

    Something less than 2% of my views come from yahoo, although it's better than Bing.

    Yahoo search engine seems to be treating my hubs pretty well, but my websites that come up well in Google just don't show there. I've heard Yahoo likes long pages of content. It is hard to figure Yahoo out other than that.

    I've found that my hubs get indexed a lot faster if I send the urls to the search engines myself, within a couple of days.

    72% of traffic is from Google
    6.65% Yahoo
    3.97% from Bing

    The rest is referral sites and direct traffic.

    I have noticed traffic from Bing and Yahoo both coming up.
    In a VERY few cases, traffic from Bing is beating Google.
    But since Google seems to be losing it's iron grip on search, I guess that's to be expected. … lysis.html
