What search engine is the most important for my traffic?

Whenever I speak about SEO, I generally always talk about Google rather than Yahoo, Live, Ask or whatever.  I’ve been told that I should refer to search engines generically, and that’s good advice, but I think I can be forgiven when you look at the market share that Google has.

In the UK, Google controls a massive 87% of the search market .  In Australia, it’s much the same story with 88%.

We specialise in SEO for UK businesses so when it comes to targeting a search engine, the answer is pretty straighforward – go for Google!  It may be harder to be successful on it that Yahoo but the rewards are that much greater.
