Searching for buyer enquiries and supplier details using search engines Home
By using the various search engines effectively, you can find buyers and cost effective suppliers at no cost . However, the techniques used by search engines to find relevant enquiries are widely known. These are easily manipulated and often result in irrelevant search results. Though most search engines will give millions of search results for some topics, but you can actually open a maximum of 1000 results only.
Most widely used search engine on the internet
Simple interface, fast , easy to load
Good for searching information on subjects that do not change much over a period of time - like medical problems
A website is ranked according to the number of websites which link to it (Page rank). Older a website, more websites are likely to be linked to the website. This may be useful for finding the most relevant information about toothaches. But if you search for buyers for your product, you are likely to find enquiries posted in 1998 or 1999. Generally , 30% of email addresses become invalid within 10 months and orders for products are often finalized within 2 weeks
HTML version of Acrobat, Word, Excel files is available, which opens very fast
The details shown on the search results often differ from actual information on the website, resulting in a waste of time . This practice is called 'cloaking' by SEOs
Even after using the French/Spanish to English translation option, most of the page remains in French/Spanish
Not very useful for searching for websites of small manufacturers , exporters or importers - since these websites have very few visitors
Widely used email service and popular website in most countries
Good translation tool/software (especially for Spanish to English - but did not work when we tried it recently)
New websites with latest information, enquiries are listed. Also gives more relevant results if you are searching for the website of a small company - a manufacturer or exporter , who is not likely to have many visitors
The quality of the search results has become poor. Earlier, more free trade leads websites, which do not require login and payment were listed in the search results.
Since Yahoo is a portal, the home page has other details like news and advertisements. Takes longer to load and has more distractions
Fewer websites are indexed compared to Google
Many websites listed in the search results cannot be accessed and it is very slow at times
They have introduced a feature for blocking pages which has been misused. The most useful page from our websites (based on our visitors feedback) has been blocked from Yahoo search results. Also after this feature was introduced, we have found that the results are more irrelevant.
