    Dear Hubbers My Hubs Are Not Getting Traffic from Microsoft's BING Search Engine ? What are the reasons for this low traffic from BING and How I can increase this.

      you might have thought i was joking...BING gives older domains higher ranking and seems to value age strongly (or at least at a much higher proportion than the others)..so your under a year old hubs dont stand much of a chance of seeing great rankings

      personally I hope BING tanks and never gets popular...

    Huh? I don't know about BING - can someone fill me in? Are we supposed to get traffic from there and how?

    I've never heard of Microsoft's BING... Now I am curious.

      Microsoft's BING is one of the top search engines. Google and Yahoo are the main competitors.

        I am sure what you really meant by this is that Google is by far and away the top search engine, with Yahoo in a distant second and Bing trying its best to catch up to Yahoo. smile

        Bing is a NEW search engine from Microsoft.  Literally it used to be MSN Search and one day that switched off and Bing switched on.  It's not necessarily a top search engine yet.  But it's the default that MS users were just given over the summer.

        It tends to like older Hubs better than new ones, most likely because they were in the old index that the new engine was built on.

    Bing is a search engine, like Yahoo, Google, etc.  I haven't got much traffic from there yet either, then again, I have written much as of yet.

    I don't think many people are getting traffic from bing because bing is not very popular.  The only time I ever use it is on my mobile phone since it compresses better.

    I actually had a check of my hubs on Bing the other day and a lot of them aren't indexed yet - I think that it is a waiting game

    Bing isn't really top, It's horribly slow to index or it indexes them on a weird ... scale.

    In example, I have an article for the VaporGenie When I search for it on Bing. I find my submitted  post to digg (9,1st page with that search term) before I even come close to finding the hub. (Buried in the abyss)

    Since google is the top player in the search engines game, I prefer to see Google indexing all my hubs than worry about Bing.  As long as the readers come, I dont really care where they come from.

    the age thing is interesting to know. I have been getting very little Bing traffic to my websites too, but the ones I was looking at are less than a year old so thats probably why.

    Bing is the default search engine on my work PC and it's weird.

    I tried searching for my belly dance site and all it found was the "contact us" page.  Just out of curiosity, I tried searching for a long-established furniture company website and got told it didn't exist (I then check the website and yes, it does exist).  I don't trust Bing at all.
