    What determines whether a hub gets traffic from Google or Yahoo?

    Almost all my traffic comes from Google. Is there a way to get more traffic from Yahoo?

    You can submit links to your hubs here http://www.bing.com/toolbox/submit-site-url To have them index your page

      But if Bing's already indexed it, there's not much point. Maybe check if they've indexed it first.

    Your title, content, keywords and so on. Basically you need to make it SEO friendly.
    Then you can submit your sites to webmaster like Google or Bing in order for them to index your page.

      If it's SEO friendly for Google, wouldn't it be SEO friendly for Bing? Do both sites look for the same type of content?

      Google is a lot better at analyzing SEO than Bing. Bing is garbage if you ask me.

    There are different criteria for both search engines. Google, the most popular, has a more complex algorithm when its crawlers get into our hubs. As far as I can tell (and I'm no expert!) Google really likes original content, fresh ideas, occasional updates and sensible SEO. There are other factors involved, like word count, duplication, links and so on.
    Yahoo or Bing sees things differently. It can tolerate haphazard SEO, deals with Flash much better than Google and has a different approach to links. You can get much more information if you look up comparisons of Bing-Yahoo and Google - I'm only a novice! It's a bit frustrating to find that you have a No1 Google rank with a hub but on Bing it is nowhere to be seen!
    Best of luck.

      Thank you for a very informative answer. I didn't realize there was such a difference between the two search engines, but it is frustrating that none of my hubs rank with Yahoo. There's so much to learn!

    Good quality Hubs that are original, as interesting, and or entertaining. Google has crawlers that access your Hub if you have adsense set up correctly.

    In my personal experience, When I use bing and yahoo, I get hits from bing and yahoo. If I don't for a couple of days, they fall off.

      That's interesting. I'll have to look into it.
