    Do Bing and Yahoo! search engines dislike HubPages?

    I have noticed that I receive large amounts of traffic from Google - some of my articles are even at the top of the search results. However, Bing and Yahoo! do not seem to show my articles in their search engines. Is there a reason for this? Do these search engines just dislike HubPages?

    70% of all search traffic goes through Google. This isn't on HubPages, this is for everywhere. Most of the time, that number is closer to 90%. You don't get traffic from Bing because for the most part, people don't use Bing.

    As far as hubs/articles being on the front page of one and not the others, they use different algorithms to determine rankings. Nobody can really answer that question, because for the most part, nobody except Google and Bing know how they work. There are quite a bit about them that people do know, but as far as specifics go they don't release that.

    Another reason that I like social media for driving traffic. I get most of my page views from my 8500 twitter followers. I tweet a teaser linking back to my article and they often get retweeted like crazy.

      How do you do this? I have maybe 70 followers, but mostly friends and family. How do you build to over 8000?

    There are times where I seriously think they do hate hubpages but at other times it seems like the love it. I guess it is just hit and miss.

    I'm not sure if Bing necessarily hates HubPages. I'm ranked #1 in Bing for one of my top hubs, as opposed to #3 in Google of the same hub. I think it all depends on what that search engine has indexed.

    Bing and Yahoo just don't get nearly as much traffic as google does. I wouldn't worry too much about those search engines.

    No they don't! The job of every search engine is to crawl the WWW and find content that it can display in its search results. Fresh content is every search engines hunt. Google is the leading search engine and so you get to see large amount of traffic from it.
