Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

It's really low.

You can see some stats here; nothing has really changed since then, except the names.

(Well, it's not true that nothing has changed, Google is now up to about 90% of our overall traffic..)

Basically, if all the other search engines (other than Google) on the planet were destroyed in a fiery cataclysm, it would make virtually no difference to our traffic at all.

MediaPost: Bing's Growth Accelerates

Adding in and MSN Search along with Bing, the combined search engines have grown at an average of 16 percent during June 2009. Hitwise estimates that Bing grew faster than the three other prominent search engines for the month.

I happen to LOVE the commercials... but I don't 'bing as often as I google though. Habit.

I appreciate the link. But I was hoping (pipe dream maybe) for a pie chart or something of the sort. – jjnguy Jul 10 '09 at 15:27
Found you a nice and pretty chart :) – Sampson Jul 10 '09 at 15:50
My bad. I'm guessing you though I meant search traffic to any site. I meant only to SO. Oh well, that's an interesting chart none the less. – jjnguy Jul 10 '09 at 16:01
