100's Of My Pages Indexed On Google But Only 1 On Bing?
Posted 12 December 2009 - 11:04 AM
I am a little perplexed why my site (see signature) has over 100 pages indexed on Google but only 1 on Bing. Any ideas how I can improve on this?
Many, many thanks - Leao

As to reviewing your site, if we have to look at it, it falls under our website reviews section which we have very strict rules.

Jill - thank you for saying what so many of us have been thinking! Just out of curiosity, have you (or others) published anything explaining this reality in layman's terms? I have an internal "customer" who has latched onto Bing as his litmus test for our SEO efforts, and I'd like to be able to back up my assertion that Bing rankings should not be his highest priority.

And there are countless posts on this forum you could point them to detailing [url=http://searchengineland.com/080131-071244.php]Why Rankings Are a Poor Measure of Success[/url]

Since others will be reading this in the future, rather than link directly to one of their reports I'll link to their Press Release area. They release the search volume reports quite often. Right now you'll see the December 2009 reports there. It shows all Microsoft properties delivering less than 11% of all searches in the US, and Bing specific searches coming in at just 6% of the total searches.
Those numbers, when compared against the likes of Google and even Yahoo (double MS/Bing) should help to explain why relying on Bing to be a gauge for anything probably isn't a very wise position to take.

But hey, "a company can be ruined on a bad sandwich" and that report has maggots in it!
