    With all of the changes Google is consistently making, Submitting to Bing, (Which has an ever growing search user index) may be a good idea. They have webmaster tools and in you focus more on getting traffic from alternative methods, It could potentially save you some grief.

    I understand that Google owns search right now. It's just a fact that if you open yourself to more promotions in other search engines, it could help!

      I usually do submit to Bing and Yahoo, you can't use their webmaster tools with HP though, as we don't own the website. I think with Google's recent changes, it's just a matter of time before searchers start searching for alternative search engines, if you know what I mean. smile

        Don't count on it... Google is giving the searchers exactly what they want, it's the content providers that are getting frustrated.

          I disagree, Google is giving searchers paid advertisers, not informative content. Try finding a really descriptive piece about nike trainers, you'll probably get a review from an Amazon customer.

    I don't think Google is giving searches what they want..... it is just out of habbit. I have Google as my homepage because I search directly when I get online.

    Even though the percentage of search from Bing and Yahoo may seem small, It could be huge soon and if your site or article is targeted well enough, getting high search results could mean a windfall of traffic.

    Can't hurt to make an effort. We have to adapt to grow. I will continue to rely on Google also but will work harder on spreading my reach to additonal alternatives.

      I'm agreeing with you as regards Bing and Yahoo, but I disagree that Goggle is giving searchers what they want.

      Actually, Google and other search engines are looking to provide the best information to the searchers.There is no need to manually submit your blog to the search engines, just send it to Facebook or Twitter, or just leave a great comment at a blog that links back to your hub.All you really need to do is write excellent content and you will be fine, forget about SEO..Keyword stuffing does not work anymore.For more information, I highly recommend reading Matt Cutt´s blog (Head of Google´s web spam team) http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/

    Sorry Hollie but there are only 10 positions per page in the SERP's and most people that are familiar with searching on Google know the difference between the 'sponsored' ads and the what they are searching for.  If you're going to use a generic search term you're going to get the generic search results.  This is the whole reason we are now targeting long tail keyword phrases.  I can do a search for grilled cheese and not find what I'm really looking for.  I can get closer if I add the words 'where to get' and even better results just for me if I search 'where to get the best grilled cheese in Chicago.'  Knowing how to search is only half the battle... the other half is knowing how searchers search.

    OP though I agree Bing and Yahoo can be beneficial, your best bet will always be to optimize for Google. The other SE's use a lot of the same parameters as Google so if you are optimized best for G then you will certainly be optimized for the rest.  If you have your own blogs then you should definitely make use of Bing's webmaster tools and upload a sitemap.  I think Yahoo is a paid service so I haven't even tried to do anything there but I still get a pretty good bit of referral traffic from Yahoo.

      I disagree with that statement, too. Most searchers arn't researchers, they don't make a living from finding information from the internet. They have a short attention span, want instant gratification (not to do multiple searches   to find basic information) and will switch their loyalty if they find search engines which are more user friendly, at the moment, Google isn't user friendly.

        And yet its Google that powers about 85% of the search queries in the web, and not some other search engine. And what exactly make them less user friendly? They have the simplest and the fastest search interface among all of the search engines
