    Don't be silly
    http://news.softpedia.com/news/Microsoft-vs-Google-vs-Yahoo-76385.shtml


    "Internet metrics company Compete indicated that in December 2007, Google continued to increase its dominance over the search engine market. No less than 5.56 billion queries were entered into Google in December of 2007, out of the total of 8.2 billion searches performed by U.S. users. Yahoo has a market share of just 17% for approximately 1.4 billion searches, while the combined results of MSN and Live Search only account for a total of 746 million queries and a share of 9.1%.
    'Google continued its climb towards the stratosphere capturing 68% of all search queries in the US. Yahoo! stemmed the receding tide a bit but still lost a marginal amount of market share on slight volume declines. Unfortunately for Yahoo! the continued slide, albeit small, pushed them to a new low for market share. MSN/Live continued the good fight in December and actually outpaced Google with respect to percentage gains in volume. Year-over-year, MSN/Live total search volume was up nearly 40%,' explained Compete's Jeremy Crane."

    Google has already surpassed yahoo for alexa 1 week and it's been #1 for most of the last month. In 2 months it'll be #1 for the 3 month period.

    Yahoo use one domain with the use of sub domains for all countries whereas Google use a different domain per country. This is in effect tells ALexa that all the traffic is going to one domain whereas Google's traffic is being spread out amongst many domains.

    Yahoo Search engines
    yahoo.com - US and general
    uk.yahoo.com - UK
    ie.yahoo.com - Ireland
    it.yahoo.com - Italy
    es.yahoo.com - Spain


    Google Search engines
    google.com - US and general
    google.co.uk - UK
    google.ie - Ireland
    google.it - Italy
    google.es - Spain

    Just think some deep.

    Do you feel Google would have been as popular as it is today had it operated on subdomains like Yahoo like us.google.com, in.google.com, uk.google.com. Today whatever google is it is because of google.co.in, google.co.uk .

    All those who say that if we add orkut, youtube traffic. Dont be foolish. Do you want youtube.google.com or orkut.google.com?

    Yahoo gets more traffic than Google, hands down.

    Remember that Yahoo has the most popular web email client, and the 2nd most popular IM client.
