It looks like I can't see that in my stats but I get A LOT from google.com and google.yahoo.com

My site has pictures, wallpapers and caricatures of a lot of soccer players so people searching for something like "(player name) pictures" find my site on one of the first pages, often on the first.

Jubii is Danish

I also get quite a few from them

Jan,
Who's Goo? Never heard of it before. Is it the search engine powered by Inktomi or other?

hahahaha, I have no idea! that is why I put (goo!??) after it.

I have no idea what Inktomi is, even though I have seen it mentioned a few times since I have been here.

(There is a lot I wonder about, I keep hoping that it will all fall into place some day so I don't have to ask ,I am sure people would soon tire of me asking questions, like, what is co-registration? Even though that has been 'explained' in another forum here in the last day or so, I still don't understand )

Just checked the SEs on another page and Goo! features again!

Yahoo 30.04%

Goo! 22.28%

MSN Web Search 16.11%

Altavista 11.54%

Excite 9.22%

Lycos 3.05%

Dogpile 1.92%

Goto.com 44 1.45%

I did a search for Goo! in Google ( http://www.google.com/search?q=goo%21 ), and came up with nothing but Japanese sites. I doubt 22.28% of your visitors are from Japan, so this can't be the answer.

Annoyed by you? No, just ask away. The only silly question.. is the question unasked.

"Co-reg" is short for co-registration, and it is just that. For instance, see the second page of http://www.winfreevideos.com/ . The goal of that site is to get people to register for other mailing lists while they register to win a video, etc. The same co-reg process is used by funpage sites. For instance, when some one clicks to e-mail your "A Taste of Life" page to a friend, they are inevitably given the option to check and uncheck boxes for special offers. (see step #3 at http://www.ezrefer.net/viptellafrien...ecial%20Offers ). Often people can purchase co-registrations for 4 cents a piece at places like http://www.kibble.net/ (run by Jon Prywes, whom I assumed was name John Kibble the other day ).

Goo is one of the major Japanese search engines also spidering non-Japanese web sites.

I think that's the engine that you get into Inktomi the fastest. But how on earth do I submit? Is there an English version of that site?

Thanks for that explanation OC, much appreciated!

Welcome to Thomas

I don't exactly understand how Goo! features so prominently in my previous stats.

Japan is placed 22nd in my country domains at 0.10%

I just looked at SE stats for another page and goo! isn't there at all, but google sure is

Google 64.86%
Yahoo 28.12%
MSN Search 3.50%
Excite 2.09%

I just went to GOO and found the submit page.
This URL:http://www.goo.ne.jp/help/door/url.html
all they ask for is your URL and your email address.
Pasting the URL above into Altavista's translate tool will also give you a rough translation.

Hi everyone!

Jan, did you try to search for your web site on Goo, is it included in their database?

The best way to have Japanese sites translated into English is using Excite Japan's tool, much better than AV's Babel Fish. Sorry, I don't mean to advertise my site, but have a look at the following page expanding on how to translate URLs:

http://langsupport.japanreference.com/trans.shtml

Btw, these are my yearly stats (note AV still at the top!):

Altavista 30.31%
Google 23.13%
Yahoo! 13.62%
Lycos 6.66%
AOL NetFind 4.94%
MSN 3.98%
Excite 3.33%
Netscape 2.48%
...
Goo.ne 0.59%

The monthly stats:

Google 53.53%
Yahoo! 18.82%
Lycos 6.47%
MSN 6.47%
Excite 3.53%
alltheweb 2.94%
DirectHit 1.18%
Dogpile 1.18%

AV has hit rockbottom...

Interesting question...

These are my stats from September. NOTE: FG gets 12-15,000 visitors per day and SE Traffic only account for about 11% of my traffic.

But of the top eight SEs to send me traffic, here are the percentages:

MSN 52%
Google 30%
Excite 5%
HOTBOT 4%
Lycos 3%
Yahoo 2%
DogPile 2%
AOL 2%

hahaha, yes I just did a search, and it came up. I didn't bother with the translator.

Or maybe it said no sites found :-) but the page was there, the only English link I could see. Why do the Asian sites only show little rectangles?

Babel translation CENT..? @......? Igoo... *. CENT........? B? UMLAT......? Igoo
