What's the deal with Bing? I get low traffic from Bing and frankly it seems out of whack with what Google likes and ranks me for.....

I just dont rank at all on Bing.....but I dont really care.

Point is, what is the Bing problem, should I, do you, optimize for Bing? Is it growing, is it worth it?

Google seems that it is still the leader so it makes sense to focus 99% there right?

Point in case - when was the last time someone said "Hey, just bing it..."

Probably in a Bing commercial or a conference room in Redmond.

I see it as product placement in some TV shows too.

 

But yeah. Real people don't really use Bing :)

Except maybe those people whose browser defaults to Bing as its search engine, and who don't know that they can change it. (In fact, they probably think it's Google.)

Yeah, that's true. In fact, it's what I deal with. Bing and Yahoo combined work out to very nearly the amount of traffic the sites I work on get from Google, and I believe that's because the majority of our users are on IE. Another factor leading to this situation is that our sites need a lot of work before we're going to see a decent amount of traffic from Google. I've been there for five months now, and we've got a ways to go.

Owing to the struggle and desire to gain market share, If I worked for Microsoft I'd say, "Bing it on..."
