Which is more accurate Google or Yahoo??
Does Yahoo still even exist?
*If you're talking about actual rankings being accurate you can't really answer it as it depends what the searcher is looking for. I could search for a blue Ford but want a car and not a Nordic river. Google 'seems' to make more noise about their algorithm but whether it's worth it or not remains to be seen. Whatever, it's the most popular and therefore who cares if it's accurate. On the same note, Bing has 5 ads that show up before organic listings and that is stupid as the ads are never what you're searching for. I can rank any site at 1 on Bing but it's pointless as the CTR is virtually 0.
Who cares? Google has a 67% share of search traffic while Bings at 17% and Yahoo is at 12%. Are you going to customize your pages for a Yahoo search? That's a prescription for failure.
In these days most people varying from Google.
I'd fake interest in Yahoo to do her.
This is not the joke section on bhw
Omg seriously? What happens to BHW lately?
LoL @ some of the answers above, typical BHW banter towards a newbie. I think bing has the most accurate search when it comes to information. Since yahoo and bing have similar results I would say yahoo > google in terms of accuracy.
I've found the CTR on Yahoo is 4-5x that of Google. Maybe it's just my niche, but don't be so quick to call someone newbs.
I have noticed this as well. I actually make quite a bit just from Yahoo traffic, it's low hanging fruit but definitely easy, quality traffic to have. What's better than free? Sex? Not even.
As for the OP, that question doesn't even make sense at it has no context. Please try to be a bit more clear.
I actually want G00gle to keep the lion's share or I want them to always be on top. It is because I am making money on G00gle. I don't care what they do as long as I profit from them. I do not profit from BING or Yahoo. My websites don't even show up in their index. Do I hate it when G00gle deindex my sites? Of course. However, it is still a lot better than not being indexed at all or not ranking in the first page at all.
I do not believe those numbers. Google should be having at least 80-90%.
even yahoo use Google search engine. lol

Nope. Yahoo uses bing's engine.
And dont forget it is a different class of users on Bing than on G00gle. Bing folks are older, wealthier(cause of age) and less tech savvy. Most of them still use IE because it comes with Windows, and never change it to Chrome or Firefox. As far as results go, I use Bing a bit -- it gives me better results on some queries, and less BS than Google does.
She does look good after having the kid and all that!
Not sure what you mean by more accurate but Google should be the search engine you care about as they have the biggest user base. I do keep track of Yahoo on rankcheckerace but I can tell you from experience that you will not receive the traffic you are looking for unless your ranked in google as well.
Bing/Yahoo put me in the #1 or #2 spot more often... accurate as f*ck ^^
Yahoo is light years behind Google's algorithm for search, it's different. So i'm not sure if accurate is the right word for doing a side by side comparison where a site shows up in the serps as each search engines algo will list it where it feels most appropriate. I was just pointing out that if the basis for the OPs question was which search engine to pay attention to it should be Google as they get the most search traffic.
