I have a quality website, no SEO tricks, millions upon millions of pageviews from Google yet Bing will not give me traffic. I have tried numerous times to contact Bing support but they don't bother to write back.

To be clear, my website sort of gets crawled by Bing (somewhat) and they give like 5 impressions here and there but basically it is being ignored.

Anyone have any suggestions or contacts for me? Thank you!

In my case Bing/Yahoo accounts for less than 1% of my total traffic.

First of all, and if I don't make mistake, Bing represents "only" 7% of search engine requests, Yahoo 8% and Google 75%.

Secondly, I feel like the users of Bing have a totally different profile as the users of Google. So it's possible that for such or such niche, the target audience is only using Google.

And finally, there is a matter of algorithm ranking, it's possible that Bing, in your case, is ranking your site totally differently than Google.

Personally, Bing represents 15% of my traffic, and I can tell that this is a higher quality traffic than the one coming from Google.

I see B Organic / G Organic often in the 5% to 15% range.
But I've seen it as low as 2%, and as high as 36%, depends on specific nature of website.
Yes, it can certainly range beyond that, but would have to be a special case for sure.

Careful how you judge quality, I've seen bots that can hit super high reported Conversion Rates.

You'll notice Bing's mobile pulls down the aggregate Bing numbers as well.

My situation is that Bing organic accounts for a tiny amount of traffic, and our rankings are poor.
But, Bing Ads produce good traffic.
