Bing rankings

    I don't get this whole Bing thing. Take my Nutella hub, for example. If you search for 'easy nutella recipes', it ranks 1st in Yahoo and 6th on Google. It even ranks 2nd on Alta Vista. (Does anyone even use that anymore?) But in Bing? Nada. Zip. Zilch. Zero. Is there something I'm missing? Should I even care?

      I've got a hub that the main key phrase returns as #2 result on Google and #3 result when searched for on Bing. 

      Although Bing is just starting out in the SE game, when I look at my last 24 hours traffic, Bing is now the #6 traffic source and moving up slowly but surely from a few weeks ago.

      They've been advertising like mad on tv tonight. Especially their price predictor tool. I'm waiting to see if Google changes their algo and model. It's making me very nervous, if they are going to focus only on large brand sites.

    Same for my hubs mate. I don't think that you should care for one reason and one reason only..... it's just another attempt at trying to break something unbreakable. That is to say, Google will remain king!

      You are right. Google is my main focus and will remain that way. But any little bit of extra traffic is always a good thing! smile

    I get a whole lot of traffic from bing(Not talking about HubPages traffic as I am new here and haven't got much traffic to do the analysis)...

    So, to my website main traffic contributors are Yahoo and Bing and my site ranks no where in google.

    So this is normal for search engines that one search engine won't show a page in its SERPS when other search engines will show it at 1st position in SERPS.

    I just checked some apparel/clothing keywords that I've been targeting, and it seems that Bing's algo goes for the really big names. macy's, nordstrom's, shopping.com, sierra trading post, ebay, etc.

    There weren't any affiliate sites in the Top 50.
