I get Tonnes of Traffic from Google but just a few from Bing, yahoo. I am beginning to wonder if I should manually submit my Profile link (url)....to other Search Engines, but what if it has a negative effect? (some say don't submit to many Search Engines)
This question has been raised in Q & A Section, but no one has been able to answer it.
I hope my Hubbing Guru's can advice.
I don't believe it can have a negative effect. If it did, one could harm a competitor by repeatedly submitting their information to all search engines.
I generally don't bother. Most of the traffic will come form Google regardless of what you do, and all the search engines will find the page within a few days to months.
Of course it's really not what I would consider an issue, as someone has to be the search leader, whether Google or someone else.
I think what you and many others are concerned about is being so heavily reliant on Google, who with one decision can knock you for a look.
What is even better than search results, if you can get it, is to attract repeat traffic.
That was an interesting aside to the megaupload debacle. So many people liked and used the site, that only 2 percent of its billions of visitors came from search sources.
I read somewhere that 90% of UK traffic uses Google UK lol
I never submit to search engines, but I have found that Yahoo and Bing pick my hubs up very quickly, sometimes within a few minutes of publication, and that they get a 'boost' for the first day or two, much like Google used to do, when they used to notice I existed.
Since most people use Google, most of your visitors would come from Google.
Since most people don't use the other search engines, most of your visitors won't come from the other search engines.
If you're already indexed, submitting your hub won't increase your visitors. Only good keywords, content and backlinks will.

My Hubs get very little traffic and earn very little. Even adding my Hubs to Network Sites, did nothing. I am not that knowledgeable about how to increase traffic. I have posted them on Pinterest and Flipboard,...

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.
