There are thousands of search engines out there, which ones should I pay attention to? Most of them are for specialized industries or regions of the world and are marginally used in the US. Once you weed them out you end up with the US major search engines that we all know well.
By Alain Houle, Alco Web Design LLC
If you browse the web you will find many studies showing the market share of each of those search engines. The numbers vary a bit from study to study but the main take away is that Google is used for about two thirds of the US internet searches; this does not leave much for Bing, Yahoo, Ask, and AOL. Since my customers deal with the realities of limited time and budget, I usually recommend them to optimize their website primarily for Google.
Be Wary of SEO Shortcuts
Many SEO companies offer Search Engines Optimization services. The waters of SEO are infested with sharks that use shortcuts designed to trick Google. This sometimes results in short term gains but will eventually get you in trouble when Google figures out you are cheating. Good, sustainable SEO is hard work and there is no free lunch. Get informed and be careful who you work with. Visit our blog to learn more about SEO and Search Engines Optimization.
