What is a Search Engine?
Hey guys. I’m Jeremy Ashburn with PushLeads. And we continue to make videos about SEO and answering common questions about SEO. So in this video, we’re going to talk about Search Engines. What is a Search Engine? Essentially a Search Engine is something that crawls the internet, that finds different pages across the internet and organizes them in such a manner to where people can go to that Search Engine and find things on the internet.
Of course, the web itself is billions and billions of pages. I think it’s 12 billion pages and counting. So essentially, there’s so many pages that people can’t find exactly what they’re looking for. And so Search Engines organize that data in such a way where we can find what we’re looking for.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Hey guys. I’m Jeremy Ashburn with Push Leads. And, right now we’re just gonna ask ourselves some of the main questions that clients ask me throughout the year. So, the very first question is, what is SEO?
#1 Back in the 90’s
And even way back in the late 90s when I was actually studying graphic design and learning about Search Engines myself, I really found that Yahoo was not as such a good Search Engine as Google was. And back then, there was something called Netscape and that wasn’t as good as Google. And so I remember going down through every computer in the Mac lab at that time, we had a Mac lab with a bunch of like 20 or 30 computers. I remember going through and changing the homepage of all the computers to Google. Because I was thinking, if I search for something, I find what I’m looking for a lot better with Google.
And so Google, of course is the number one Search Engine out there. I think it accounts for like 80-90% of the total search traffic. So if we’re thinking about optimizing your site for search engines or we’re thinking about making your business show up in search engines, we’re really talking about making your business show up in Google. Yahoo and Bing and all the other ones only account for 10-15% of the total search engine market sharing.
