A nice stats round up from Danny

Search Engine Land - Ouch. Again, Google is stomping on everyone else in terms of number of searches it handles (the scale shows billions of searches handled per month).

Hey, are the regexes you’ve posted official? If so, Yahoo! is being screwed for a wrong reason, I think. See http://enkirukkal.blogspot.com/2008/06/yahoo-getting-screwed-by-regex-bug.html

Yes, they are official -- provided directly from Compete. Glad to have them out there so that people could dissect them more.

Thanks for the confirmation, Danny Sullivan. I’m sure Yahoo! Searches get undercounted by at least 25% then.

Steve from Compete has confirmed the bug and says they’ll recount and update the market share numbers.

I don’t think starting a search engine now would be a great business idea.

Sundar... thanks for doing the research there. Surprised you didn’t get a hat tip past "a reader" in the updated article at http://searchengineland.com/080619-143511.php

Thanks Burgo. I’m mildly surprised too that neither Danny nor Jeremy at Compete chose to acknowledge me by my name or link to my blog post.

No problem Sundar. I see that I wasn’t the only one, and that sza commented similarly here: http://sphinn.com/story/54313#c45595
