AOL Search Engine Traffic
AOL Search engine traffic? Until this morning I had no idea there was such a thing, but there it was, as bold as brass, on one of my Hubpages articles. On Hubpages you can see some stats which show you the keywords people used to end up on your article - and which search engines those keywords were used on.
So there it was this morning, just one search term, one little result, from the AOL search engine - traffic I had no idea really existed.
We all look at Google traffic as being The King - and are aware of other search engines, such as Yahoo and Bing, that can bring traffic to our wonderful words - but who'd have thought that AOL was producing any website traffic for us!
Well, deep joy. One view, from AOL. One. Better than a kick in the nuts as they say.
Courting the search engine results from alternatives to Google can be like swimming in treacle - other companies aren't so open in publishing exactly how you can perform well in their results listings, which is why, over the years, less and less importance has been attached to trying to win this free traffic.
Am I going to rush off to find out how to get more search traffic from AOL? I think not. That account has over 2,000,000 views and to only spot one AOL search result from that lot means it's not something worth pursuing right now.
