What is your ROI on GoogleBot and other search engine bots?

    I recently bloged about my ROI from search engine bots. Basically here is the results:

    Botscore ROI:
    #1 GoogleBot .78 Search referals per spider.
    #2 Yahoo Slurp! .14 Search referals per spider.
    #3 MSN .01 Search referals per spider.
    #4 Ask.com 0.00 Search referals per spider.

    Curious what other large site owners are seeing? Would really like to see Shawns numbers on this ;)

    Here are my #'s for one of my sites.

    Yahoo! - 0.237
    MSN - 0.056
    Google - 0.045

    My site will probably get around 30,000 search engine referrals this month. This particular site ranks best in Yahoo! and it shows in ROI I guess.

    Google 76.6 %
    MSN 12.8 %
    Yahoo 7.1 %
    Ask Jeeves 1.2 %
    Dogpile 0.3 %
    Google Images 0.4 %
    DMOZ 0.2 %
    Netscape 0.2 %
    Unknown search engines 0.2 %
    AOL 0.2 %
    Mamma 0.1 %

    The DMOZ one surprised me. :eek:

    And actually, I would have expected AOL to be higher. I haven't checked these stats in a while but it used to be around #3 last year, above Yahoo, which always kind of surprised me.

    Shoemoney,

    I read your blog and this is really good stuff. In terms of follow-up strategies based on these statistics, what are you looking to do other than analyze the data for curiousity's sake? Will these numbers effect how you approach different search engines???

    I guess I'm trying to figure out the application here that can enhance a website's utility. Perhaps there is non, but these figures simply provide a statement about search engines in general. In any event...I'm fascinated by it.

    I'm a new poster to this board and it was your data analysis that caused me to stop lurking and post a response. Thanks for sharing.

    Ignore my post above. That's just percentage of referrals. I didn't read the blog first so I didn't calculate it as ROI. :eek:
