Google wins your vote

Spartan homepages are no obstacle to web success

Voting is finished in the latest PC Advisor online poll, and Google has emerged victorious from the battle of the search engines.

A massive 48.7 percent of voters thought Google was the top destination for information on the web. Google, with its basic no-frills design, proves successful search engines do not have to be located in large, multi-function portal sites.

Of the 497 people who voted in the poll, 242 of those voted for Google.

The next most favoured site was Yahoo, with a comparatively meagre 14.3 percent of the vote. AltaVista was next with 9.1 percent, closely followed by Ask with 8.7 percent.

But the poll was bad news for Microsoft. The firm’s MSN search engine took only 5.2 percent of the vote.
