    1 - Google
    2 - Yahoo
    3 - MSN/Live
    4 - ASK
    5 - Altavista / AOL / Lycos

    The 5th isn't really worth worrying about in my experience as they have such a small amount of market share and I'm sure I've read somewhere that a lot of them use engines from one of the top four anyway.

    I like most places you can concentrate on the top few only.

    Many thanks - it's much appreciated.

    I didn't know that ask would be so high.

    Many thanks Dave, just wondering . . . . . . How different would that list be for people in the UK using the search engines ?

    I'd hazard a guess at them being very similar and whilst the numbers may vary slightly I'd usually consider Google as the number one player followed by MSN/Yahoo with everything else in the distance across the world.

    There are obviously variations on that depending where abouts in the world you are and one of the other major search engines that you might not have heard of is Baidu which is the leading search engine in China.
