Google owned a 65% share of U.S. Web searches in April | Technology | Los Angeles Times.

Google led search-engine traffic in April, with 65.4% of Web searches taking place on Google-owned search sites, according to the research firm ComScore.

The Mountain View, Calif.,-based company’s search traffic, while dominating, was down slightly from March when Google-owned sites took up a 65.7% share of the market, ComScore reported.

Coming in second place last month was Yahoo, which accounted for 15.9% share of online searches, up 0.2% from March, the research firm said.

In third came Microsoft search sites, which were also up 0.2%, taking up a 14.1% slice of the market, ComScore said.

In a distant fourth place slot was the Ask Network, which nabbed a 3.0% share of online search queries, followed by AOL which had a 1.5% take in April, ComScore reported. Ask and AOL’s April numbers were each down 0.1%, the report said.

Yahoo and Microsoft’s search sites are powered by the Microsoft Bing search engine. When Yahoo and Microsoft’s search sites are combined, Bing powered a 30% share of the online search market.

Like Microsoft, Goolge too powers searches for sites it doesn’t own, one of them being AOL.

When AOL and Google’s performance is counted together, Google’s numbers rise slightly, accounting for 67.3% of searches in March and 66.9% in April.

“The Future Of Real Estate Lead Generation – Building Lead Generation Machines”

….Darin Persinger

We wanted to post this article we received from Darin. This is a great article and really reminds you how far technology has come. Darin talks about building a machine of sort for lead generation.

Enjoy the article and tank you Darin for the email and  your personal experience.

I got my real estate license in 1997.

Things were different then. Much different.

My real estate lead generation consisted of phone calls to expireds and fsbos.

I did print ads and I literally had to take the ad to the newspaper because we couldn’t fax, scan or email the pictures.

Real estate lead generation was all about “spray and pray.”

The Future Of Real Estate Lead Generation

The future is now and the future of real estate lead generation, I believe is about building machines.

Lead Generation machines.

The great thing about inbound marketing is that it is a machine.

You build the machine, aka a blog post or social media strategy, implement it and it can run on its own. When you wake up in the morning, you have leads from people that registered on your IDX or people that opted-in to your On Demand First Time Home Buyers Webinar.

Sure, back in 1997 I might have had a voice mail waiting for me in the morning on the office voice mail system, because of an ad I ran in the paper. But every week I would have to run another ad. Every week another trip to the newspaper. Every week another few hundred dollars spent.

Building A Lead Generation Machine

What I did in 1997 was truly grinding it out. I wasn’t really building a business. Sure I could create systems and processes, but if I stopped showing up, the leads stopped showing up. I was in the business of real estate lead generation. You shouldn’t be.

You should be in the business of building lead generation machines, and then let those machines go and do the real estate lead generation.

Back in 1997 if someone sold 100 homes a year, they were a balla! Now  you hear about many real estate agents selling 200, 300, 500 homes a year. Sure some of it is because of big REO contracts, but its because they have built lead generation machines.

Technology, the internet and social media have giving you an opportunity to building lead generation machines.

The question is: Are you taking advantage of this opportunity? RealtyGo – Your Real Estate Listings Best Friend!

Also, keep in mind my belief is you can automate tasks, you can’t automate relationships.
My suggestions is go to work on the building of lead generation machines and focus on the relationships those machines create.

Stay Productive,

Darin Persinger

Comment from an independent individual – “I bought a laptop for my wife about 6 months ago and set up my mother’s laptop today so that she could print 🙂

Anyhow, both had a Bing toolbar preloaded. I’m wondering if the increase in market share has to do with other factors other than consumer choice…”

What’s the verdict? is this post true or false? Microsoft has made no such announcement.
