    How is it you can get your hub on the first page of Google results but not Bing or Yahoo?

    All the three being search engines doesn't mean they should fonction the same way.
    Personally, I advice to focus on your google rank. The number of people using the other two is just insignificant to be worthy.

      Thanks for that. I agree to about loads of people using Google, they seem to be on the top.

    Yahoo no longer has a search engine. Since 2010, its search results have been powered by Bing – which means that they are Bing's search results.

    Google has the highest market share for all search engines and you can see the recent figures on my Hub at this section:

    Google and Bing use different algorithms to determine search results.  Google has spent more money investing in its search quality and its search engine is the most used and most trusted.  Since you are ranking well on Google, I wouldn't worry about Bing.

      Thank you for sharing that. I had no idea about any of this.  That's good news then, Google obviously rule the web.

    My understanding is that the algorithms focus on different aspects, they are developed differently and you'll get better results on certain topics in each one.

    Google is of course the best to make page one on since it's got 80% market share.

      Hi ilikegames, I agree with your about google. I think most of us rely on it.

    I agree with "ilikegames" in that the most likely answer is algorithms. Google has a very very sophisticated algorithm that does in fact search different aspects of your page. Bing and several other search engines have been trying to play "catch-up" for a long time.

      hi how2makeablog, thanks for commenting.  At least we can rely on Google to support our hubs. Maybe those other ones will catch up eventually with them. smile
