It's Not Just All About Google Anymore

However,repparttar search landscape changed dramatically early in 2004 and things have been very fluid and interesting since that time. Its not that Google has stumbled, or become ineffective as a search vehicle, its just that major players like Yahoo and Microsoft (via MSN) have decided to make a major thrust intorepparttar 141030 search business.

Having been firmly conditioned (since shortly after 1998) that Google wasrepparttar 141031 "supreme deity of search engines", I tookrepparttar 141032 highly publicized search entries of Yahoo and MSN with more than repparttar 141033 proverbial "grain of salt".

Throughout a recent three month period, one of my websites occupiedrepparttar 141034 #5 position on Google, Yahoo, and MSN for a very popular and important (at least in my line of business) three word search term. This situation provided an opportunity to measurerepparttar 141035 current popularity of each of these three search providers.

If asked "beforerepparttar 141036 fact", I would have guessed that Google would still berepparttar 141037 overwhelming #1 search choice and that Yahoo and MSN would be distant #2 and #3 choices. Therefore, I was somewhat surprised byrepparttar 141038 results that were tabulated during this recent 90 day period.

Forrepparttar 141039 period in question,repparttar 141040 search popularity results were as follows:

Google: 33% Yahoo: 31% MSN: 23% All others: 13%

Granted,repparttar 141041 above results are for a single search term over a particular 90 day time period, butrepparttar 141042 results clearly show that Yahoo and MSN are already important players inrepparttar 141043 search business.
