I have a small business website and blog that cater to a very specific crowd (a very technical job within the film industry).

 

I've noticed mostly all of my search engine referred traffic is comming from Google (about 30-50% of total traffic a day) while I think I've maybe had one referral from Bing and none from Yahoo in the 6 months I've been in full swing. I know I'm on both their search engines though.

 

Before I dig deep and sign up for Bing Webmasters, etc., and invest a lot of time, is this just a simple side effect of my audience? Bing and Yahoo seem to cater more towards less tech savvy.

 

Can someone with some technical and non-technical sites comment on this kind of search engine referral result?

Not really, it just means that more people use Google search  than use Yahoo/Bing as a search engine.

My audience is mostly technophobes.

They either hate tech or at least are not enamoured in any way.

My Bing #s are probably around the 1% of the traffic received.

The SERPs are fine.

Just no Bing users.

 

M$ bleeds money keeping Bing alive.

M$ tax write off.....

 

say that to a Linux geek

M$ tax begone!!

good riddance and all that

 

but then if there was no Bing would Google lose it's intensity?

So the US taxpayer keeps your Google rankings honest albeit by rewarding incompetence.
