    I get the most from Google, then Yahoo, then Altavista/Netscape.

    #1: Yahoo-Google and normal Google
    #2: Altavista
    #3: Dogpile

    #3 is very weird IMHO because dogpile = go2net (i think so, at least) but i only get hits from dogpile... odd but nice

    Have a great day,

    Hi there members,

    I have noticed a great increase in traffic from Netscape & AOL.

    Three months ago I decided to build a games site, just to see what happened with it. I didn't spend a dime for marketing, hosting, etc. simply relying on the search engines. In three months time, the site is generating over 50,000 hits per month. http://www.allfun-games.com

    The one thing that I have noticed about AOL is that once you achieve a high position, it tends to stick. For example, the site I designed for my mother http://www.earthmuffinzz.com has been changed, deleted, redone etc. and has remained the #1 site on AOL for the keyword baby clothes for three years. To me it's unbelievable, but I am guessing that they are not going back and reviewing these sites, just adding new ones.

    Earlier this month, I noticed that the same positions that I hold on AOL, are the same positons I hold on netscape. This seems to only hold true to newer submission, but not to older ones like the http://www.earthmuffinzz.com which cannot be found on netscape for baby clothes. Yet, another site I did, http://www.adz-baby-gifts.com holds the #7 spot in Netscape, but nothing in AOL. This site was submitted about a year ago.

    Now myself and another Sitepoint member own two sites that are exactly alike they are mirrored. http://wwww.absolute-marketing.com and http://www.buy-opt-in-email.com. The first site is #1 in Netscape and carries no position in AOL, but the Buy-opt-in-email.com site is #1 in AOL and carries no position in Netscape.....go figure. These sites were submitted about 6 months ago.
