    Hi, I know that big g gets probably like 90 something percent of all search volume, but I'm so sick of dealing with them!

    I have a web site that's over ten years old, with a certain page that's several years old and has consistently ranked in the top 3 for years for an "extremely difficult" keyword. Then once the latest panda hit, it's was way down the list, and completely unrelated crap youtube vids are ranking all over the first page (so much for g giving a sh*t about "relevance").

    Anyway, I'm wondering if you were able to completely dominate yahoo, bing and AOL search for a keyword, do you guys think that it would bring much quantity / quality traffic?

    Also, I never seem to see threads that are about ranking on these other engines, any ideas / links/ advice on this?

    All input from those who have experience is greatly appreciated!

    If you rank on one, you'll probably rank on the rest.
    I don't Google gets that much, but probably like 60% of the entire web search market.

    Yahoo! Search is now Bing by the way. I wouldn't give up on Google IMO.

    You already answered the question. You said Google receives about 90% of traffic and the remaining 20% is shared among the other searches not just Yahoo and Bing. Sorry to disappoint you, if you really want to make money for almost free and it has to be Google.. No one has been able to change that, you have to live with that.

    I think Yahoo likes links, send tons of links to your site and you will get high ranking.

    Thanks for the input so far, it's just frustrating, as in the old days of Excite, Altavista, etc (How many of you guys remember them?), I would easily own the internet by now, lol.

    But the way google will make one little stupid change and throw ten year old, well liked and respected, RELEVANT sites down to page 3 - while some kid's useless unrelated youtube video is ranking number 3 can f*ck up your day!

    Ya google is over 50% searches but if you get high on google probably the same as others.
