Different Search Engines give Different Results
The number of search engine results can vary depending on the search engine that you use. One would think that a search is a search, and you would get the same number of results no matter which search engine that you use. I found this to be untrue. When putting in a search for ‘about’ (as in the ‘about page’ on a website), Google returned 9 billion in Firefox, while Safari only returned 600 million.
This is something to consider when you are either doing a search yourself, and when you are trying to optimize your site for better ranking. You need to be clear on whose rankings you are going after.
While Google remains the dominent player in the search engine market, it is only about 70% of the market – so just a quick note that not everyone sees the same results when doing a search.
