Since the Google changes the number of different search engines listed on my stats has increased, even though the overall visits are still down on what they were.
Maybe the complaints I have read here about the problems of searching for topics on the new style Google's results are making people use other search engines more . Which may be good news, I am wondering if others here are noticing the same trend.
I'm using "bing+cuil+quora+yaoba+ask jeeves+yahoo+stack overflow" for my personal queries.
I used to get 100s from Ask and thats dissappeared, dont know why
Google was never my preference and certainly is not now. When I have cross-referenced Google with other search engines I always find better and more on target results from everyone else besides Google. I normally use Yahoo. Then I may use AOL to check for variations.
I mostly use google.
Sometimes I use Dogpile, which is a lazy way of searching four engines at once. That's google, bing, ask, and yahoo all at once. At one time, it was a five in one package (pre-Bing era). But, I guess they don't like or need AltaVista and Webcrawler anymore?
In my past experiences with AltaVista, it could sometimes find results Google and Yahoo couldn't find. Maybe, it's still a worthwhile search engine.
Google searches are returning garbage, and has at least quadrupled my research time. I've switched to Yahoo.
Seriously -- when you search for a particular business and it shows up on page 1 of Yahoo and page 6 of Google, switching is a no brainer.
These replies are interesting, if people are doing this then it might explain the appearance of the 'new' search engine names on my stats. list on hubs and on the traffic sources page.
I use google.de, and there everything seems as it was before. But I have noticed more visitors from search engines other than Google to my Hubs.
I usually use Google on my Imac computer and use Bing on my Windows 7 PC.
I'm seeing an increase in yahoo and bing both. It hasn't made up for the loss of google by any means, but is interesting - has google shot itself in the foot?
I'm seeing that too Wilderness. I'm not getting a lot from yahoo and Bing, about 100 views a day, the rest being made up from the other googles, but they seem to be increasing daily which suggests to me too searchers may have become dissatisfied with google.com
Hush now, Izzy! You'll get me all teary eyed, feeling bad about poor google.
The other night, I wanted to check and see if a topical cream was safe for a toddler, so I plugged it into Google. I got back 2 or 3 ads from Amazon, some forums, and ehow. Nothing answering my question. Research is not a popularity contest. IMHO, Google has forgotten about relevance in favor of popularity. I've switched to Yahoo.
could it be that most of our hubs are not ranking in google and ranking instead with other search engine that is why we can see an increase of views from other search engines?
For searching health information, I am using this customized version of Google,
Health Search Engine
Cuts out the garbage that sometimes turns up. I don't want to see user-generated content on health topics in particular. That's been one of my pet peeves with search.
Anyone had much experience with Bing? Have taken a few opinion surveys about search engines and they hammer on about it! Think I've Binged a few times but Google is default for me now, that's a hard habit to break, damn you google lol
SEARCH THE WEB... SUPPORT YOUR CAUSE
Lately I have had to depend a lot on Bing for my research. I was seriously considering shifting to Bing, but the fact that I am so used to Google brings me back here... maybe others are also thinking on those lines.

I just realized that my Hubs get absolutely no views from Bing and Yahoo; however Google on the other hand still happens to send around 400 a day. Any idea why this is happening? One particular hub actually ranks extremely well on Google and gets me 50% of my traffic, I just searched for similar...

I noticed that 98% of my hub organic traffic is from google, why not from other search engines, specifically yahoo search engine and bing?

While I was in the forums, i saw a lot of hubbers complain about the effect of the Google Panda on their traffic and earnings. Some even so disappointed that they were thinking about quitting hubpages. I was wondering that Google is not the only search engine in the market. Google has strong...

Do Bing and Yahoo! search engines dislike HubPages?I have noticed that I receive large amounts of traffic from Google - some of my articles are even at the top of the search results. However, Bing and Yahoo! do not seem to show my articles in their search engines. Is there a reason for this? Do...
