80% of my traffic comes from Google!!


80% of my traffic comes from Google!! Is this true for anyone else?
I can't believe it... I have great rankings on msn live search and altavista and yahoo, but this does not count for me.. I am number one for some keywords but not with google.

The traffic comes from google because your visitors does not visit other search engines to get to you. Its simple as that.

I doubt people would use other search engines apart from google and yahoo.

You know google is the best SE . I think around 70% is google and other 30% are shared by other SE like yahoo msn etc....

It the rankings are similar for all search engines, it is not surprise to see more visitors from google than others, since google takes up majority share of the search market.

So to get more traffic, the only answer is seo for google!!
But another question: how did I rank so well on other search engines and not so on google?
Google is the one..

yes, as you might probably agree that google has played a large part in searching.

I get a TON of traffic from Google, but through tracking it seems that literally NONE of the hits (hundreds atleast) lead to any purchase:/

There are several points to be made about search engines as related to the inhabitants of WHT.

First, tech types tend to be heavier users of google than other search engines, while more casual users often just use whatever is setup in their browsers.

Second, tech types are hard to convert, but for tech markets, conversions will be better from google referrals than the other search engines.

Meanwhile, for sellers of almost everything else, AOL, YAHOO, and MSN LIVE beat the pants off of GOOGLE for conversions.

As for "quality of search results", MSN LIVE seems to be much more to the point than GOOGLE right now.

Maybe the problem is with your site, which is not set up correctly to walk visitors throughout the purchasing process...

Optimizing site for google matters the most as google has the highest market share. keyword research is important to estimate the traffic for potential terms, try the google keyword suggestion tool.
