Any tips on getting Bing and Yahoo to recognize your hubs?

    When I post my hubs....I register them with Google, Yahoo, and Bing....but only Google actually puts them in the search results...very quickly I might add......Bing and Yahoo pretty much act like my hubs do not exist....any tips would be greatly appreciated.

      I have done the same and stopped bothering with yahoo and bing.

      Can I ask a really STUPID question (apologies): what do you mean by "register them with google" etc?  Is there a step I need to take besides hitting "publish" on my hubs?

        Most of the search engines(I guess all SE's) allow you to submit your site to be indexed . Just google submit your site to google bing yahoo .

    Although Bing is gaining some traction, it is still of minute importance and likely will remain so.

    Aside from the fact that few people trust Microsoft to deliver honest results, their programmers are among the sloppiest in the world - almost all of the good ones got rich and went off to start their own thing.

    Management doesn't help either: they have too many eggs in too many baskets (most of which are losing money) and no idea what to do.

    This will probably outrage some, but Microsoft is looking more and more like a company whose days are numbered (and no, I am NOT the only one to say that).

      I would suggest you Google the terms 'bing market share' and 'bing yahoo alliance.'

        I understand that Bing is rising.

        That's one of Google's greatest concerns.

        However, Bing is still barely on my radar.  Analytics Search Engine visits over the past month:

        google     205,659
        bing     3,963   
        yahoo     2,930   

        ask     356

        But sure, I started giving them their sitemap anyway.. just in case.

    I have also been wondering this for quite awhile.

    I mean, what is it with those slackers?

      Bing the term 'become a fighter pilot' and see how many content farms come up. Or Bing 'site:hubpages.com' and see how many hubs are indexed.

    bing seems to be quite age driven. I was working on a bing optimization article for awhile - but I never really figured anything out worth publishing sad

    def Age seems to be highly weighted - and on some of the terms I watch .. Bing and gogole are really not that far off, Iget Bing traffic at about the same percentage as the user market seems to be.

    I odnt know about hubs - but yahoo is highly slanted by domain keywords, with many of my sites ranking in the first week for the target url term.

    Again, traffic limited by user base.

    As far as SE's go - G is still the only game in town

    I have been wondering if such a small percentage of my traffic comes from Bing because few people use Bing to search, or because I don't carry any ads that Bing might favor in its search algorithm -- or maybe a little of both. This could shift, though.
