In September I attended the 2005 Get Found! Conference (about search engine marketing and optimization) in Connecticut. Here are some interesting statistics about search engines that I hope will provide food for thought as you prepare your 2006 marketing strategy.
These statistics were shared during the opening remarks by Emily Merkle and Jarod Caporino from MIVA.
- 41% of the activity on the Internet is “searching”
- 60% of people search from work
- Google, Yahoo, and MSN account for 93% of the searches performed on the Internet
