Just a thought, with all the Panda stuff going on I was wondering if anyone has tried going this route.
Yahoo and Bing use the same cues as Google to tell if a webpage is relevant to a search query. Keywords in the text, alt and title tags in images, meta descriptions, appropriate title and h tags, etc. There's really nothing you can do differently to make a page show up higher in Yahoo than what you do for Google. Also, Bing's search results are nearly identical to Google's.
I have no idea if this helps or not (and I wouldn't know how to optimise for Bing, either) However, of late I've been submitting new pages to Bing and have been receiving much more traffic from Bing and Yahoo than I ever have before.
Here's a question that shows my complete ignorance: how do you "submit a page to Bing"? Do you submit a hubpage article to Bing? Thank you.
Sounds like a good next project for me. The only reason I haven't already done that was I didn't know if it would actually do any good. Thanks.
Actually I do know that Yahoo places much more weight on keyword density than Google does, and, where Google will delist you if your KW density is too high (5% ?), Yahoo will reward you with a top SERP listing.
If you search for 'electric smoker' on yahoo, an eBay page is first with 'electric smoker' on the page about a zillion times, whereas on Google the first listing is a page with a low density for that KW. Or, in other words Yahoo lists a page first with no real text, just tons of KW, while Google lists a page with tons of text and a low KW density.
Now with Bing, I have no idea at all.
I guess the question is, with all the shakeup with Google rankings lately is anyone trying to rank for Yahoo, yes, less traffic, but much easier to rank with long tail keywords, so you'll at least get some traffic.
Well I certainly wouldn't do something to rank on Bing or Yahoo that would lose me rank on Google. To the extent they differ, you have to aim for Google.

Does anyone write for Bubblews and if so what do you think of it? Would it be a good idea to take the hubs I have that aren't performing well and put them on there?

I only had it for a day and I haven't had any views at all since I deleted it. Could it have screwed up my settings in here?
