It surely doesn't hurt to rank well in the major search engines, and search engine traffic is on the rise.

Searches by people in the United States were up 55 percent in December over the previouis December according to Nielsen/NetRatings. Google remained the number one search engine.

Google had 48.8 percent of all search traffic, which is up from 43.1 percent the previous year.

Yahoo had 21.4 percent, which is down slightly from 21.7 percent the previous year.

MSN had 10.9 percent of all search traffic, and that is down from 14 percent the previous year.

This could play a role in why Yahoo is considering paying people to make it their primary search engine http://www.geekvillage.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30032 and why MSN has started to offer people a chance to win prizes by using their search engine http://www.geekvillage.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30073
