Thanks to Shannon Paul and Chris Brogan for this very cool link.

“Google is the most popular search engine on the Internet. But you probably didn’t need me to tell you that. According to April 2008 stats, Google is used by about 60% of US Internet searches (Yahoo is #2 around 20% and MSN around 10%, AOL and Ask are about 5% each). They maintain their huge lead because they return the most relevant results for a search. If they didn’t, we’d use a different search engine. So how does Google do it? How do they know what are the best sites to refer you to for your search?”
