I'm getting tons of hits from yahoo and google. Zero - basically - from MSN/Bing. I don't hate Microsoft.... that much.
I hate Microsoft a lot, and Bing loves my Hubs, so perhaps you need to alter your strategy...
But really, it does seem that Bing likes the longer-established Hubs.
As much as I don't like Bing, I think it is becuase of the "age" of the huns, mine seem not to come up there as well, or at least I don't get traffic from that one.
So, I'll agree with with both people and say Bing likes older hubs. wait for a while, and see if it makes a difference
I've spent some time looking at the Bing high rankers in my niches. Bing seems to like very large authority sites. Haven't seen any smaller sites - or hubs in the top 50.
I'll probably look at other niches and see if there are some with some breathing room at Bing.
I've got several hubs that come up on Bing in the top three search results for some of their common key phrases.
I have had 4 hubs get 20 or more views from Bing in the last week. One is 4 weeks old, 2 a fortnight or so, and one a few days.
Quite a few of mine have no bing hits at all, though.
To give an example, I have a hub where part of the title is "how to dry lavender".
On adwords, it shows an average of 1,300 searches a month for that exact phrase, and 3,600 last month in the UK.
Searching in google for it, my hub appears three times. Last on the first page is my actual hub, and digg and folk (what's that?) links to it are higher up the page.
In Bing, my hub shows up at number 5.
When you check your google rankings you make sure your not logged in to any google accounts right?
Your hub does not appear on first page or even second, although the digg link to it does at position 8
You had 49 diggs!..now you have 50
2nd page for Bing when i search, perhaps there is a location priority, i havent heard anything about search customization with bing, so i dont know why we would have such different results
No, I was logged in, I'd not done that before, so didn't bother unlogging. Thanks for the info!
Hate to confirm that I have found the same for both Google.com (ranked 153) and Google.co.uk (ranked 154). Yahoo is better at a ranking of 7. Recommend 'Rank Checker' to do this, its a lot quicker than looking through Google results manually.
Plants and Oils is it folk or folkd? Folkd is a site a bit like Digg. Some of my hubs rank relatively low on bing, yet I do have one which gets quite a bit of traffic. However Google is where the majority of my traffic comes from (at least 80%).
hi BB, you are right, it is folkd. I didn't know about the site (and didn't put my hub there).
A relatively simple SEO tool for Firefox. I can use it to check where a particular search term ranks on a particular site. For example for the phrase 'hubpages earnings' by blog is 3rd on the Google.com search results. For the phrase 'Severn Barrage' my hub ranks 23rd on Google.com. And just for you the phrase 'plants and oils' returns your page at 6th place on Google.com and 8th place on Google.co.uk.
It can be downloaded (along with some other cool tools including a tool which highlights all no-follow) links from here: http://tools.seobook.com/.

I do okay ranking in Google for various hubs, but never do remotely as well in Bing or Yahoo for the same keywords.I have some hubs in which I'm the number one spot on Google for a decent keyword, but not even on the...

I need reassuring.Up until a few months back I understand, maybe wrongly, HP pages got additional boost from Google. That implies (to me) that Google wanted content farms to churn out pages so that every possible...

There have been several theories about what content Google is penalising and rewarding in the search results but at the moment it does seem a bit random (from my end). Let's compare notes and hopefully we can see some...

I may be naive, but tell me what Google actually has to gain from dissing this site?
