      Hi Jane,
      I'm not really familiar with Bing. What are the benefits and is it a monetized option like HP? How do I find you on the site?

              Super glad to hear it my friend. Thanks for the "luck" I need it with all of the hot hubs being entered.
              Do you use Bing Cags?

                Sorry, I seem to have missed your post. I apologize. Actually, I haven't, but am planning on doing as some others have, submitting my hubs.

                Just to test it out and see what kind of results I get. wink


                @Misty - what's up? You back home? smile

                  Hi Cags, yep, back in Guernsey again, missing the holiday of course, but weather pretty good here right now, so getting growing my veggies as usual smile

                  PS. Can you answer my question about submitting hubs to Bing Cags??

                  1. Cagsil profile image82
                    Cagsilposted 7 years agoin reply to this

                    I would think that Bing would, but it is unknown how pages/hubs/sites Bing lists?

                    The last time I checked, Google was up over 300 Billion pages, in total. Bing- I don't know anything about or how it indexes?

                    That is why I'm contemplating submitting a few hubs to see what happens. wink

                    I hope you get a great deal from your garden. smile

    I am not a huge fan of Bing, but I think that they have significantly improved over the last few months.

    I didn't like Bing in the beginning as well but since they have more accurate searches than Google now, I am using them and submitting my hubs

    1. mistyhorizon2003 profile image93
      mistyhorizon2003posted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Won't their 'bots' and 'spiders' find our hubs without us submitting them manually, because I really don't fancy submitting over 300 of mine one by one in order to get them listed with Bing?

        rebekahELLEposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        yes, they find hubs. my Bing views have increased since all of this google craziness. I've never submitted a hub. I didn't realize it was an option.

          mistyhorizon2003posted 7 years agoin reply to this

          Maybe it just speeds up the process, but I think I will have to play the waiting game as submitting all of mine one by one would take forever.

          I have also been noticing more traffic from Bing since the Google Panda Update. But it might be due to what I did to improve my hubs to survive the changes. I'm also seeing more traffic from Yahoo. But Google traffic? That's another story...way down today! sad

    @Stacie L and mistyhorizon2003

    How do you go about submitting a Hub to Bing - or to any other search engine?

    1. mistyhorizon2003 profile image93
      mistyhorizon2003posted 7 years agoin reply to this

      I wish I could answer this question Aficionada, but to be honest I have never done it, which is another reason I am not keen to start now! Perhaps Cags or Stacie L can answer this and enlighten both of us smile

    I've been looking around over there and the images are amazing. It has improved since I last explored.
    I found this page which includes the link to submit an URL.
    http://www.bing.com/toolbox/webmasters/

    It looks like you can submit your profile page and it will pick up hubs. That's all I'm doing for now, and will see what happens.

      That's what I just did. I submitted my profile. lol


      Edit: Thank you for the link smile

      Thank you for the tip. I just did that. It made me cry, because I had to make over 20 attempts at typing in the jumbled letters and numbers since I could not make out what they should be. I wish they would at least present real words, that way, if not every letter is obvious, at least it is possible to make an intelligent guess.

      I have been submitting my sites to Bing since it opened.
      You can submit to Yahoo, but if you submit to Bing I dont see the use really.
      But here's the link to Yahoo anyway.

    Thanks, I didn't know there was a link to submit my profile page...I just saw my hubs ranked higher on Bing.  Now, lets hit Yahoo!
