    How much does your traffic rely on SEs?

    How much does your traffic come from Google, Yahoo, etc? Does it make all that SEOing worth it?

    I was surprised when I saw this:

    Direct Access/Bookmarks: 89.9 %
    SE Links: 2.7 %

    (from awstats)

    Don't forget the traffic many of us rely on from Adwords or Overture.

    One way or another, and it's safe to say nearly all of us are slaves to Google and/or Yahoo in some way.

    Just imagine for fun if for whatever reason Google and/or Yahoo conspired to destroy your business. They have the power to completely obliterate any online business. It's really scary when you think about how much of your biz is in the hands of just 1 or 2 companies.

    What's funny to me is when a site sues Google for some reason and they are still found in the natural rankings. If I ran Google and some site tried to sue me I would definately delete their site from every appearing in the natural ranks.
