Time To Give Google The Finger?

By ShowMeTheMoney | October 16, 2007

Time to give Google the finger? Err probably not, at least if you’ve seen the latest search engine rankings (small pun there) from a survey over on the BBC news site.

TOP SEARCH SITES – AUGUST
Google sites 37 billion searches
Yahoo sites – 8.5 billion
Baidu 3.2 billion
Microsoft sites 2.1 billion
NHN 2 billion
eBay 1.3 billion
Time Warner 1.2 billion
Ask 743 million
Fox 683 million
Lycos 441 million
Total worldwide searches: 61 billion

Which means love them or loath them Google wipes the floor with the rest of the pack. Personally I dont think its healthy that one company has so much influence over the internet. For web site owners when Google says jump most ask how high?.  They have no choice whether its via PPC or organic search results realistically if you want to sell something from your site you need to make sure the big G is kept happy.

I love this quote from Felix Dennis,which I think applies here,
When I see a whale hanging about in a lagoon getting fatter and fatter my immediate reaction is to reach for my harpoon. ..
