I have many articles ranked fairly highly throughout Google and Yahoo but haven't found a single one via Bing. Has anyone else experienced this as well?
Oh i see another search engine. I would submit your site to them.
I have found a couple of mine on the first page, give it time they will start ranking, no worries. O.K. I checked bing and I have found 92 hits have came in through Bing and a few of my articles are on the first page.
I have received a fair amount of traffic from Bing, nothing like Google or Yahoo, but not bad
13th on my list of traffic sources in the last 7 days - only 21 hits.
19th with 20 hits
but i think the response that was most appropriate was
Its a google world
I've just ignored Bing, and it never occurred to me to pay attention to whether my stuff shows up. To me, it's just - like - a big mess. I like Google.
Not as good as google and yahoo, but I get "ok" traffic from Bing. I wonder if someone compares MSN livesearch traffic to Bing traffic.
I get about 800 referrals from Bing in the last week. Seems to be starting out just fine.
I got one hit through Bing, and I was actually surprised to see it. Microsoft is always lower in the search engine ratings.
Bing is a new search engine that should start picking up pretty heavy as more people start to submit websites. Its nice to have multiple places for exposure on the web.
I read somewhere you need a page ranking of 4 to get listed by bing. I have photos listed by bing which bring in quite a bit of indirect traffic but none of my hubs are listed directly. You can submit hubs but I wonder if the page ranking of 4 still applies?
I've just checked and it is my top referrer today - perhaps one of the hubs I submitted has been listed?
Yes just checked with Bing and one of my hubs I submitted is now listed (page rank 3) so submitting hubs may help to get listed.
Not true. I've got quite a few Hubs listed with them that are not PR4. In fact, I've got one which right now has a PR of 0 'cuz someone copied it (I DMCA'd them good too!) and it comes up as the first listing returned when I search on Bing for it's main key phrase.
If you search for page rank there are free tools available including plugins for search engines like Firefox. I downloaded a plugin and it gives me a page rank toolbar which tells me the rank of any page I look at. My hubs are all 1 to 3. Hope this helps.
Pagerank is strictly a Google measurement. I doubt MSN or Bing takes it into account because they certainly wouldn't have access to the algorithm(s) that Google uses to determine PR.
My analytics account for the last week shows
If you want to see if a site, or page, is listed, on any search engine, regardless of rank you can use the search term
in the search box replacing yoursite.com with the site or page you're interested in. For example if I search for
on Bing it returns 28,300 results for all the pages including hubs it has listed for Hubpages. The same search term on Google returns over 2 million results!
If you dig deeper by searching for
replacing your-hub with the exact page for your hub, you will see if your hub is listed or not. It won't tell you where but it does tell you if it's listed.
As of right now Bing is my fifth highest traffic source.
Seventh in the past seven days and seventh in the past 30 days.

I noticed that 98% of my hub organic traffic is from google, why not from other search engines, specifically yahoo search engine and bing?

While I was in the forums, i saw a lot of hubbers complain about the effect of the Google Panda on their traffic and earnings. Some even so disappointed that they were thinking about quitting hubpages. I was wondering that Google is not the only search engine in the market. Google has strong...

Hey Guys and Gals, Man, I have just about had it with the traffic issues here at the Hubpages. I have published over 100 hubs here in two years. I have won several awards, I have had over 10, 000 views, and I have a following of over 200 people. When this whole traffic loss debacle first occurred,...

There has been a lot of discussion in the last few days about HP changing the rules and people being un-featured or even un-published for spam and over promotional activity. So I just want to add my thoughts......Whether people (writers) like it or not most of their traffic will be coming from...

I have never seen this before! Analytics shows that I have traffic, but HP's traffic sources is showing all zeros. Anybody else having this issue?

Bing is the new MSN Search Engine and is already being well received. Some are calling it the "Decision Maker".Obviously it has a long way to go to surpass Google, however it's only been out a couple of weeks and is has surpassed Yahoo search engine in terms of market share.Make...
