I noticed that 98% of my hub organic traffic is from google, why not from other search engines, specifically yahoo search engine and bing?
it's important to note that that graph relates more closely to worldwide market share, a lot of foreign nations do not use Google as much.
Google Operates in the high 80% range of search engine traffic in the UK and the US.
I am more concerned by the fact that someone with the name 'income guru' is asking such a basic question!
I would definitely not complain! Google is one of the most popular search engines on the internet, I wish I had most of my traffic from google! Mine just comes mostly from Hubpages
You should be pleased, incomeguru, esp if it's google.com! It's taken me 2 months to get more google.com traffic than hubpages! But I know what you mean! I do have a couple of posts that attract a little yahoo and bing search traffic. There's so much written on Google, I hardly know anything about what criteria other search engines use to determine searches. Maybe someone should write a humb on it?
most of mine is google also as I believe most here at hubpages are also from google...
Yahoo + Bing is about 1/3 of google dot com for me. Add in all the other googles and they have an overwhelming advantage.
I have seen on Yahoo that it can take a lot longer to get indexed with them. Bing seems somewhat faster than Yahoo. Google still indexes our Hubs faster than the others, just not as high lately it appears.
Mine is mostly Google too, but not 98% I used to get most of my traffic from Hubpages, but Google.com has surpassed it and that's not counting the other googles. I have some traffic coming in from Bing and Yahoo but not much. 98% Google.com traffic is great!
I was being a little glib rather than literal with the 98% remark, but that chart looks off. Google is usually brushing 90%
I suspect that HP make their site Google friendly, as Google are the biggest SE, and HP needs traffic to survive as a business. But being Google friendly doesn't necessarily mean that your site is picked up by other SEs.
think Google represents almost 86 percent

Er, has anyone suggested registering your hub links on the other search engines like Bing and Yahoo ? Or Stumbling, and tweeting the stumbles, or bookmarking the tweets?.....

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...

I often review the traffic source of my hubs. I find that I get some traffic from Google,but I can't get ant traffic from other search engine.Why? Do I need to submit my hubs to other search engines?

I've only got about 930 hits ever from yahoo search engine - the thing is that well over 200 of those are in the past month.Obviously that's a good thing, and shows that either yahoo search engine is finding my stuff, or that just more people are now using yahoo search engine.I'm wondering if...

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...

Most of my traffic from search engine used to come from Google. However, over the past month, my Hubs are getting more hits from Bing and Yahoo instead. In doing SEO research, I generally try to play to Google, so I'm uncertain concerning the reasons for this change in statistics. Does anyone else...
