I was just curious
I don't use bing and don't know who does
Microsoft has spent alot of money on the new site but I don't seem to be getting any hits no matter what the venue
what about you?
I've been seeing Bing.com traffic since about three days after it went live. And it's slowly increasing. Not only that but doing some key phrase searches showed some of my hubs have good standings in their ranks.
According to my stats I've had 151 views from Bing....compared to 20,000+ from Google. I personally don't find that search engine very useful and don't use it either. Obviously some people do, but I think it's people like my mom who claim "My new computer with Vista makes me use Bing!" (She doesn't understand how you can change the default search lol)
Bing doesn't even come up in my search results, hmmm?
I did type in a few of my hubs & they don't come up in Bing at all.
I just found this neat article : http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/07/24/ar … gle-users/
And, I agree with the author...after I read this I went to Google Analytics. Sure enough, my eCPM from Bing is double that of Google's and about 35% higher than Yahoo traffic....now, if I only I could get more Bing traffic! Even though the eCPM is really high, I've only had about 150 views since inception, so it has the potential to earn...I just need to get the traffic.
I once read somewhere that older people tend to click on ads more, and I'm wondering if Bing has an older group of users, like my mom, who can't figure out how to change her default engine.
I got enough hits from bing, the first day it was out, for it to show up in my statistics. I have used it a bit, and think it works well.
I am getting good traffic from Bing. There's one time when I got around 34k traffic from them in one day and my stats really shoot up. Now I am trying to duplicate that.
My site gets more traffic from Bing than it gets from Google. Yes people use Bing. In fact the ones who used MSN now use Bing. BTW when you search something on MSN it automatically redirects you to Bing.
Amazing. If I had to venture all of my websites and blogs and Hubs, I would have to say that Bing is less than 5% of my traffic. Google is #1, other referring sites are #2, Yahoo #3 and so forth.
I have noticed, though, that there are very, very different search results between Bing and Google. I know what Google is looking for (aka backlinks and quality content), but have no idea what Bing values.
This site I am talking about don't get any traffic at all from Google. But Bing and Yahoo send enough traffic to pay my bills off.
Congrats! Whatever works, I am SO into it. It just doesn't work for me! Do you have a handle on what's driving it? If so, please share!
I don't really know. Just optimized my site in general according to the laws of SEO. And every single search engine ranks me high in their SERPS other than Google which has penalized me without any reason at all. You can read my hubs about penalties, backlinks and SEO.
For the past 30 days I've had 55 bing visitors compared to 6924 from Google, 1410 from Yahoo, and 2402 more from assorted intenational googles like google.co.uk etc.
Keywords are similar to google and yahoo.
I've had a few hits from Bing, not many. Some of my pages come up there now, which is is very recent--at first none were showing whatsoever.
As for usage, I go there on and "only if" basis--i.e., can't find what I want in Google or Yahoo. Sometimes just the fact that they produce different results has helped. A little.
At first they were clearly fast-fast-faster in returning results (on my slow Hughes Internet satellite system) than Google, but Google must have been lying in the weeds just waiting for that. Within weeks, Google was snapping out results in virtually identical time.
So I pretty much went back to (a) Google, (yawn-b) Yahoo, and then (c-oh fooey, must I?) Bing, in that order.
I have had 124 visitors from Bing and it seems to be growing daily !
For the last 30 days, my hubs have had 36K hits from Google, nearly 10K from Yahoo and a little over 2.5K from Bing. I think it is sending me more traffic than MSN did, but to be honest I never paid that much attention. I will take whatever traffic search engines want to send me
Funny thing is, I have yet to even look at Bing. I suppose I should type it into the address bar and have a looksy!
Yes I am getting some traffic from bing on my blog. It is not huge but decent.Hope to get more soon.

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...

Most of my traffic from search engine used to come from Google. However, over the past month, my Hubs are getting more hits from Bing and Yahoo instead. In doing SEO research, I generally try to play to Google, so I'm...

I have read many forums over the last couple of months on how traffic to HubPages has dropped considerably since July. After much investigation I believe to have figured out what has caused this drop (and I don't think...

I need reassuring.Up until a few months back I understand, maybe wrongly, HP pages got additional boost from Google. That implies (to me) that Google wanted content farms to churn out pages so that every possible...
