    From the data it looks like ads on Bing, Facebook, and other places effects how people are searching on Google. Interesting and informative read...

     

     

     

    We keep it no secret around here that Google search is big business. With a healthy majority of the search market share across the globe, it’s critical for businesses to be present and successful when their prospects are searching on Google.

     
    But as large as the search giant is, it’s not a monopoly on the media your customers consume!
     
    Google’s most obvious competitor, Bing, makes up roughly 1/3 of the US market share. Showing up on the Bing SERP is certainly important in its own right, so you can reach those 5 billion searches a month, and advertising on Bing has plenty of additional benefits. Interestingly, most of Bing’s users aren’t exclusively searching on Bing. Over 100 million searchers rely on both Bing and Google to deliver their search results, so what they discover on Bing may later impact what, or who, they search for on Google.

    I have found that Bing ads can work well for certain niches. From what I have seen the demographic of Bing users tends to be older and less tech savy than the general population. Bing ads tend to be cheaper so if you are targeting the correct niche they can be profitable.

    Is there enough traffic to be had from targeting Bing? I had thought that its market share was small enough that it was a bit of a waste of time to work on it.

    It depends on where you are. In the US Bing has around 30% of the search market so that is still a fairly substantial amount and because many people do not bother to target Bing the traffic you can get tends to be cheaper. In other parts of the world Google has a much bigger market share up to around 90%, in those locations targeting Bing is less attractive.

    Some of my sites get quite a bit of traffic from Bing. As MM said it is somewhat niche dependent as a lot of the people how use Bing just use it becuase it is the default and they never change it. So targeting tech niches do not do as well but craft niches do pretty good as well as health related niches.

    I have a few sites that get a decent amount of traffic from Bing and then others that get practically none at all. To be honest I have never dug into why the difference and just count the Bing traffic as a bonus. It does make sense that some niches and demographics would do better on Bing so that is probably what is going on. Other than doing ppc on Bing I am not sure there is a good way to target the search traffic other than doing what you would already do for Google.

    The more searches on Gooogle aspect really seems to be people checking you out on Google after they find you on Bing. I bet that reviews would be a big part of whether or not that helps you or not. If you do not have any or have a bunch of bad reviews then you are not going to get any extra business.

    Well that is going to be true whether people are coming from Bing to check you out or just find your site via keywords on Google. A large percentage of searchers will check out a site's reviews before buying so having bad reviews is going to sink you no matter what.

    Very true there is a reason that Yelp and other review sites get so much traffic. People want to check out who they are doing business with which is why you need reviews. In a lot of people's eyes having no reviews at all can be as bad as having bad reviews.
