Search Stats, 2005

Search Provider Searches (Millions)












To promote your EditFast profile and specialization pages you MUST at least submit to the top five search engines below.

The top three (four?) make up 99% of all the searches on the top five. The rest are still important, but if you want to kick start your campaign do the top three first.

# 1 Google
The most popular search engine by far, a good ranking for two or three of your keywords here could result in a lot more monthly traffic for your site. Good ranking can be achieved by distributing your keywords frequently throughout the important places of your pages and by having lots of incoming links.

Yahoo is not a search engine. It is a directory. It is time consuming and can even cost money to submit to Yahoo and I would not bother with it. Submit to Google and that will cover it.

#3 MSN Search
Ranked #3 and it may be growing.

The following search sites are important and should be submitted to after you complete the above three most important search sites.

Dmoz (ODP) itself will not send you much traffic, I have ranked it the third most important search site anyhow as its true importance lies in the fact that lots of third party sites including Google use ODP data on their sites. What this means is that if your listed on you will soon notice your site is being found on sites such as the Google Directory, AOL search, Netscape Search and Lycos to name just a few. Open Directory Project guide is a very detailed guide written by me on getting into the ODP successfully.

Very popular site. You can't just submit your site to About as you would with other engines, you must contact the guide of the appropriate category first and ask him or her to list your site. Only content driven sites will get a listing here.


Just as Dmoz's main attraction is that it supplies data to many third party sites, so too is Looksmart's. Their network claims to reach vast numbers of people. However, your main advantage of listing with Looksmart stems from the fact that MSN uses their data prominently within results for searches conducted on, and other international MSN sites.

Still very popular.
