News Flash! Google Used Most, Our Facebook Friday Question Reveals

We’ve started doing a “Facebook Friday Question” on our Search Engine Land Facebook page each week.

I realized I should write up some of the results. So here’s the first, that most people use Google more than other search engines. Surprised, right?

OK, it wasn’t a scientific poll, and the 222 people who responded on April 29 were a pretty small sample. Still, it was interesting to see what people focused in search marketing and search engines had to say.

We asked, “Which search engine did you use the most this week” and got back the results below:

  • Google: 197 (88.7%)
  • Bing: 19 (8.6%)
  • Yahoo: 5 (2.3%)
  • Blekko: 1 (0.5%)
  • Ask: 0 (0.0%)

It was no surprise that Google did so well, getting 88.7% of the responses. But it was notable that Bing by far outdistanced Yahoo, 8.6% to 2.3%.

I’ll post other poll results from questions we’ve done in the coming days. Like our Search Engine Land Facebook page, and you can participate in future ones and be alerted when they happen. It’s pretty easy — every Friday.
