[Infographic] – Which search engine holds the most weight?

Google, Google, Google…it’s all we talk about, it’s (possibly) all we care about in terms of SEO ranking and PPC ads, and some might say they even live in fear of it (you know, since the big bad Panda updates).

One thing we can’t argue with however, is its resourcefulness; it has “everything” one could need, making it so much more than just a search engine. It’s a machine.

Now that isn’t to say that Google can’t be annoying sometimes (infact an earlier post of mine focuses on just that *shakes fist* :x ) and familiarity breeds contempt after all, right?

Perhaps it’s because of its ‘one size fits all’ approach or perhaps it’s because of it’s dominance of the entire internet that causes people to look elsewhere for a search engine that fits their particular needs and that feels slightly more personal…in any case, I came up with this helpful infographic to help you decide:

    Surely Baidu is fairly unkown anywhere outside of *China*, not Japan.
    And don’t the “sponsored results” count as ads?

    Thanks for the graphic.

    I love Blekko, but unfortunately no one else does. They’ve made it far too confusing for the normal user and that’s something that will cause normal searches to never use Blekko.

    I’ve shown several family and friends Blekko, explaining the benefits over search engines. Out of everyone I’ve shown not a single person has continued to use it. Heck, most asked me why the heck they’d use ‘slashtags’ anyways.

    Until Blekko folds, I’ll continue using it for keyword research.

    Hi Mike, thanks for checking out the graphic!

    I did mean Japan rather than China since, although China is the home-country of Baidu, at the time of this graphics creation, Japan is Baidu’s highest-priority overseas market as Baidu’s only search site in another country so far is in Japan.
    As far as the sponsored results counting as ads, they certainly do, however I was referring to a “fix” that exists for this in the form of a Firefox plug-in that removes all traces of the ads. I could have been clearer on that, sorry. Here’s a link to a screenshot of the plug-in in use: http://i.imgur.com/9UcBG.jpg

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Rev, really glad you like the graphic!

    Hey – you can only bring the cow to the well – at least we know the water’s good ;-)

    Happy Searching!
