Google most important for lawyer

The Search Engine Journal reports Google is by far and away the top search engine for a lawyer marketing on the Internet. Read on to get the break down on searches by search engine.

The Search Engine Journal reported the following breakdown:

According to a Nielsen/NetRatings report released on Monday, Google topped off the January search engine usage charts with 39 percent of active Internet users using search engines- 59.3 million unique viewers used Google to do searches.

Yahoo Search (using Google results at the time) and MSN attracted 30 percent of the search engine market each, according to data. According to the NetRatings report, Yahoo had 45.7 million unique users, and MSN, 44.6 million.

America Online’s search (powered by Google) was fourth, with 15 percent of surfers using AOL, or 23.4 million unique users.

Ask Jeeves, with 8 percent of web searchers (or 12.8 million users) came in at fifth place. (The percentages add up to more than 100 percent because some people may have used more than one search engine.)

With Google’s own results and AOL using Google, this shows that Google still has a strong grip on the search engine market, even after Yahoo chose their own quasi-Inktmoi pwered Yahoo Search Engine over continuing to serve Google search results.

All lawyers know they need to be high in Google results but Yahoo and MSN are drawing 30% of the search traffic so they do need to be looked at closely as well.
