Talk about search engine dominance

Just how dominant is Google as a search engine portal?

Let’s just say of the 221,721 search referrals to my blog over a nine year period 95% are from Google, 2% from Bing, and 1% from Yahoo!. The remaining two percent is made up of various smaller search engines.

While the true market share of the search engines are 72% for Google, 10% for Bing and 7%  for Yahoo! it just goes to show if you are small fry like me it still pays to be better known in the main search engine.

Either way Google still is dominant beyond belief.

Blog revamp

I have changed the title of the blog to my name – Warren M Tang – and upgraded the blog design to reflect the new direction this blog is heading.

While the blog originally was about corpus linguistics only, I have personally moved on to other areas, and so a more generic title is necessary. With the new title and new look I can now do more in other areas.

I will move away from focusing on just corpus linguistic tutorials and concentrate on making this blog more useful as an information and resource site for corpus linguists, cognitive linguists and English as a Second Language researchers.

This blog is going through a revamp. Material is being added as well as simplifying content output. After all blogs are supposed to make content production easy.
