Yahoo Image Search Now Sending More Traffic Than Google?

Aug 2, 2010 - 7:57 am 2 by

We see stats on image search usage, comparing Google to Yahoo to Bing to even sites like Facebook or Flickr. But which sends webmasters the most traffic? Google Analytics doesn't make it very easy to filter search referrers but image search engine, but those that rely on image search as a traffic source keep close tabs to that metric.

Zeus, a forum personality that I have come to respect in terms of any image search topic he posts, wrote a post at WebmasterWorld.

Google recently redesigned image search leading to webmasters complaining that they may receive less traffic. Zeus said that is happening and due to that, Yahoo is sending him more traffic via Image Search than Google. Zeus said:

We all know that google images has made some unnecessary changes to there layout and here the last weeks time Yahoo images has taken the first spot in my stats for the first time ever, in just a week.

Has anyone else seen the same?
