Why is traffic to my hubs only coming from Google search engine?

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

      i think that is considered very good already. Most of my traffic i still need to promote through my facebook and twitter and daily traffic is still not much. I love your hubs by the way. it is very informative and easy to understand.

    Because Google has approximately 98% market share.

        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!

          It's a graph for the US?

          I think the latest figure for Google UK is just under 90%.

          Anyhoo, google certainly doesn't get 98% of the search share as someone else stated.

          And I don't think I will be following the wisdom of income guru either, lol lol

    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 sad

    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?

    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.

    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?.....

    Just asking....
