Can Yahoo and Bing be helpful in overcoming the decrease in page views

    Question. Does anybody know how to "make use of " Yahoo and Bing?

    In response to dipping views someone mentioned "using" them more. I don't get it. I've kind of felt that we are all at the mercy of the search engine people decide to use, Google being the most popular.

      I don't think so. Bing and yahoo don't get close to the huge numbers of people use google

      To make use of Yahoo and Bing, to me, would be to submit your hub url to their search data base.  Eventually, they will pick up HP hubs, but submitting yourself will speed things along.  Even with Google, I use Webmaster Tools and submit my newly published hubs during the "Fetch with Googlebot".  This will speed up Google crawling your newest material.

          You are welcome. Hopefully you will get some other ideas on that.  I speak only from what I do and have seen that work in my instance.  Never have I researched the issue however.

    I don't believe getting hubs indexed by Google is the problem.  Getting the Big G to rank them is the bigger problem. smile

    It's always good to have multiple traffic sources that earn you some clicks. After google privacy policy changes and shutdown of scroogle many users are moving away from google, so yes, bing and yahoo traffic does help to some extent.
