Yahoo winning the local traffic battle

Filed in Google, Local Search, Statistics, Yahoo by Matt McGee on May 25, 2006 0 Comments

Interesting chart from late last week on the HitWise blog — it shows (in the bottom section about Maps) that Yahoo Maps has a big traffic advantage over Google Maps — almost a 3-to-1 ratio.

That’s worth keeping in mind if you’re using local search to grow your small business. And it’s further justification to take advantage of Yahoo’s new “Local Featured Listings,” which I wrote about late last month.
