    Then again the problem could be the nut loose in front of your computer monitor.

    Do you have a marketing degree?

    Do you have experience in online marketing?

    Across how many categories have you run a PPC campaign??

    I have run several hundred in the last 3 years and still do not know how it would work for a Dentist practice....Medical Practice Pizza shop and others.

    Every business is unique and as such each has its own method of operation. What works for one may not work for another.

    In the flip side it is very easy to copy a business and make a success of it.
    SEMrush
    As for Yahoo in 2007 they were again the # 1 traffic site with 133 million daily visitors Where Google had only 131 million:eek:

    The big difference between the two is one is a portal and one is a search engine,

    The portal people hang out for 30 minutes and do a lot of e-commerce shopping on Yahoo...

    The search people hang out for about 6 to 8 minutes on the search giant El Goog and this is what irritates El Goog and why they continually strive to bring new products to market.

    Anyone care to give me a rough number for 23% of 5.9 billion (1.25)

    Whatever it is if I can grab a chunk of it for my websites I am down for it!!

    Organic or paid I grab traffic from Yahoo like a mad man.

    So minigames the question perhaps should be

    :)

    Thank you Sir for what I see as the only sane post in this thread so far.
    Thank you again. I would rep you but it appears I may have done so already recently and it will not allow me.

    Quite welcome however most would tell you I am insane and I admit it :D

    Actually Yahoo Publisher Network pays better than Adsense most often ;)

    And affiliate marketing kicks adsense butt!!

    With me yahoo makes less than 10 percent, more traffic comes through google local i.e. google.it and google.de than yahoo.

    If you rank #1 for "poker" or "real estate" or the like, you'll have tons of traffic.

    If you rank #1 for some obscure keyword(s), you get very little traffic, no matter the ranking.

    Most of us rank #1 for all kinds of obscure keywords relevant to our websites — for example, your business name or your personal name. But because those rankings are usually irrelevant traffic-wise, I've adopted the practice of using the Keyword Tracker to follow only those keywords that (per Overture and WordTracker) get at least 20 searches daily. There's no need to track keywords that receive very few searches, since they will receive very little traffic.

    I have ranked number 1 before on Yahoo-it sent minimal traffic-not worth worrying about. Number 1 on Google at the same time, sent about 30,000 uniques a day.:p

    I never use Yahoo! for my own searches, just Google. So, I'm not surprised that very little traffic comes to my site from Yahoo!

    Like everyone says, focus on Google - that's where it's at.

    I was actually pretty surprised when I first started getting serious with blogging earlier this year just how far Yahoo's fallen as a search engine. The difference in the traffic I get from Google and Yahoo is night and day. Granted, I seem to rank better on Google for some keywords, but even the names of people I rank in the top 10 for in Yahoo don't bring me much traffic.

    Still, it's better than nothing!

    1/4 of my traffic (on my music/band fansite) comes from yahoo search engines (yahoo.com yahoo uk ..) so yeah, i think it really depends on the niche. my site ranks pretty well on yahoo too ^^ and same goes with google :)
