Skipp Porteous: Google is Best Search Engine

The Sherlock Investigations web site has been online for over 10 years. The Internet is the only place we advertise, and by doing so, we have clients from all over the world.

In order to stay current, I closely monitor our web stats daily. Every day I know how many visits there are from the previous day. Our stats even show us how many people visit each page of the Sherlock Investigations web site.

I also know exactly what search terms and search engines people use that cause them to end up at our site. I find it interesting that Google brings us more than twice the visitors of all the other search engines combined, including Yahoo, MSN, and AOL.

One reason for this I think is that Google searches now include blogs (web logs), such as this one. In fact, the things I write about in this blog are picked up by Google within a day of posting.

With this inclusiveness, Google, so far, is staying way ahead of the pack. As a general search engine, Google is by far the best.
