    What Search Engine Do You Currently Use?
    I know the regular stats, just wondering what people in the business use.

    Now I'm talking search engines, when you want to search the internet. I know people use other things to search for information, like Twitter, Wikipedia etc. but they don't crawl and index the internet. So the question is just for search engines.

    And then Bing is supposed to power Yahoo shortly anyway so...

    I use both Google and Bing. And I mean personally. Not just to check rankings, etc.

    Definitely 99.9% Google, for me, using my PC and my iPhone.

    Google 99% of the time
    Google 99% of the time. On *very* rare occasions, Bing or Yahoo. But, I get 90+ % of my organic traffic from Google and I can see how they crawl my web sites. Far better than Bing or Yahoo. :-) If I assume, I assume Google crawls other web sites better than Bing or Yahoo do.

    I use google by default but I also use yahoo some of the time and bing very rarely. It's because I have gotten used to google.
    Once upon a time I preferred yahoo over google but that gradually changed.

    Shoppers determine what has value and they like coupons. Stop manipulating who set the cookie just because you do not like coupon and promotional sites.

    I almost exclusively use G.. bug when I want something real time, I'm starting to use Twitter. For example, my host was having issues and all their servers were down. I couldn't get through to support but the people who did posted updates on Twitter. It was great!

    Google all the way
    Most people use Google so I was always checking rankings in G and backlinks in Yahoo. Got addicted to Google and in love with Gmail.

    I'm trying Bing as default the last few days and I haven't been disappointed. Been doing mostly technical searches and it's been good.

    Bing?
    Seriously, does anyone even get traffic from Bing or Yahoo?
    I get so little.

    @Oakland79 - I don't get much traffic from Bing or Yahoo either. It's even worse as I'm in the UK and Google have even more market share than they do in the US of A.

    On a tangentially related note: I visited my parents this weekend and was searching on their iPad. They have their default search engine set to 'Bing' and I wouldn't have been able to tell the difference in quality of results between them and Google had the search box not made it clear.

    Surprisingly impressed was I (I've no idea why I've written that sentence like Yoda but I like it so it stays!)

    I can tell the difference. Google is the one where it is not unusual for four out of the top ten search results to lead to 403 errors when you click on them.

    This poll was started two years ago. Things have changed a little. Bing has powered Yahoo. I'm getting used to search stuff on Bing more often then two years ago. I would say 50G/50B at this point. I set up Bing webmaster tool to check my sites status as well.

    I was actually very used to using Google, but they started to ignore my words in queries. Changing my words and showing results which I never requested. This made me use Bing even more.

    Pretty much always google. Yahoo was nice at one point, but now too bulky. Or so I remember with all the extras I didn't care for.

    duck duck go and ixquick. Google-like results without all the spying, personalization, and privacy issues.

    But I'm not recommending them, if they get too popular, G 'll make them they go away...
