Wonder which search engines are most popular?

Google owns over 92% of searches worldwide, while their biggest competitor, Bing, only gets 2.5% of searches, followed by Yahoo and Baidu.

Why is Google so popular among internet users? Because they give searchers what they are looking for, and they do it quickly.

SEO-wise, all search engines have slightly different signals they look for when determining rankings, but Google is the gold standard for determining searcher intent. That’s why most digital marketing companies use Google’s best practices.

Most search engines base their SEO ranking factors off of Google, but they’re usually just a few years behind in the A.I. Which is why basing your SEO efforts on Google’s best practices is definitely best strategy. In the process, you “lift all boats.”
