Question: Should we try using different search engines for our websites to see if the search results are different or will most of the analyses shown today be the same across different programs?
Answer: Generally, Google is 70-80% of the search market. So for all intents and purposes, you should concentrate on Google. Once you set up Google Analytics, you will also be able to see how people are getting to your web pages, and whether BING is important. Note that BING now is the search engine of Yahoo – so essentially it is a BING vs. Google World.
Usually, if you do well on Google, you will do well enough on Bing. So I don’t worry very much about Bing at this point. I am more interested in Facebook and Social Media (Yelp, for instance) – these are very important aspects for your Internet marketing strategy.
