    Hey Everyone

    Most IM people focus on ranking in Google. However, what I have not ever really seen, is a good discussion about how to rank in Yahoo and Bing. I will be the first to say, I have no clue at all. If anyone has any actual experience with ranking them and maybe some golden nuggets they could share, it would be appreciated.
    Make it a great day!

    Honestly - alot of the factors that get you to rank well in Bing/Yahoo might get you penalized in Google. Take your pick. Over-onpage-optimization, exact match anchor text spams, etc etc. Their algorithm is pretty outdated compared to Google (think Google 3 years ago), without caffeine. However, I've found that getting ranked on Google you will eventually get ranked on Bing/Yahoo. I've heard rumors that Bing carbon copies Google for a lot of terms, and this has been proven by my team on a few terms. It's rare, but it does happen.

    I would do the exact same things to rank in Google as I would to rank with Bing/Yahoo.

    One big difference between them is that Bing/Yahoo do not as many of your pages as Google does. I've always found that annoying. Getting their search bots to visit my sites is not the problem, getting the pages to show up in SERPs is.

    But I don't lose any sleep over it since Bing/Yahoo traffic is only 3%-5% of total monthly search engine traffic.

    I've heard & read that the number is higher than that.

    Actually I find that most of the time, Google and Bing rankings are very opposite. When you improve in Google you seem to go down in Bing for a while. This isn't always the case, but it happens quite frequently. Also new pages can rank very quickly in Bing for no apparent reason.

    I've been wanting to do some Bing tests. I just don't have a clue how Bing works. They seem to be a totally different animal than Google. I've got a few pages ranking well on Bing that have no business doing so.

    I thought Bing/Yahoo get now 30% of search volume. This is widely reported

    3-5%?

    The numbers for Sep are 30.2 which is actually down a bit from the summer. Bing is up slightly but Yahoo has dropped a couple of percentage points.

    You would think since the numbers for Bing/Yahoo you would get about half the traffic for the same position that you get from Google but it really does not seem that way to me. Except for a couple of niches even a #1 ranking in B/Y does not bring in anywhere near that.

    Not sure why that is, anyone have any ideas why the traffic is so much less? or is it only me?

    Sometimes I have a link in my signature to a product. If I do assume it is an affiliate link and I might make a couple of bucks off it...................................
