Sorry buddy, but your message doesn't make sense, especially this sentence : "I have seen many guys use their technique they are got a good result."

If you've seen guys using their techniques successfully, then you already have the answer to your question, use their techniques then :)

edit : do not hesitate to share these amazing techniques you've seen others using :)

However Dimitri, I am interested in how to rank on Bing.
It seems we have been so focussed on G that B ranking has evaded us.
I would like to rank on B!

edit, I see this is in Link Building not Bing. Oh well.

Indeed, this is why it would be a good start if the OP would mind sharing what "these many guys" are doing :) ...

By they way, Bing seems to like when page are easy to interpret.

edit: this should be in the Bing category.

They also seem to like EMDs (based purely on casual empirical evidence subject to other possible interpretations).

The best way is to tell Bing you have a new URL or an update to an existing URL.

<snip>

When you ping bing (LOL) you are telling them to come check out your new content. I have found they respond rather quickly. I have had new articles show up for targeted long tail keywords rather quickly.

Bring is far more aggressive on the indexing than others that "finding you" is not the problem. The problem is "do you have anything worth indexing in the first place".

Sadly, too many asking these "how to rank" questions have not looked at their own content with a jaundiced eye ... or have convinced themselves they deserve to be #1 in the serps for simply having a site. Unfortunately it does not work that way. (sigh).

I've been saying that SEO != Google optimisation for over a decade. Almost nobody listens.

If one has specifically optimised for G - or any single SE - then by nature of each algorithms differences one has probably de-optimised for others. Finding the sweet spot, a general foundational optimisation plus specific optimisations that don't discombobulate one or more others is a matter of trial and error. And needs to be reinvestigated regularly as algos change over time. No one is likely to share such hard found knowledge.

In my experience, Bing referred traffic:
* converts at at least twice Google.
* traffic is at least 6-times more transactional than Google.
* bounces less, visits more pages, and spends more time on site.
* is primarily via IE/Edge so optimising site for same is critical.

Bing: has a somewhat different demographic than Google:
* almost entirely US.
* less tech inclined.
* more blue collar than white.
* mostly over 35 with children.
* pretty much 50/50 split male/female.

That said, speaking generally about Bing:
Note: please note cautionary words, i.e. may, appears; consider the following my opinion only. However, I do get ~15% of total traffic, ~30% of search traffic from Bing :)

* CTR of SERP appears seems to be powerful; if result two gets a higher CTR than position one they tend to reverse, two moves to position one. Therefore both title (to catch eye) and description (to convince searcher) are especially critical.

* user engagement: pogo sticking, where a searcher clicks a result then returns quickly to click another may be a negative metric. On the flip side if they do not return within that time threshold it appears to be positive metric.

* longer content is better. There are indications that this is tied in with SERP CTR and user engagement above.

* Bing appears to weight page and site authority highly, part of which looks to be age of domain.

* backlinks are important but not in the same ways or weightings as with Google. In some ways they are much as Google was years ago, so once again a tricky one to get Bing while keeping Google.

* backlink anchor text appears to be weighted more perhaps because Bing is not as conversant with synonyms. This is a tricky one to get correct as Google tends to devalue/penalise above threshold repetitive anchor text.

* Bing takes your external aka outbound links seriously; if they go to low quality or hazardous sites site rankings will tank.

Yes iamlost, great post. We have been optimising for what we thought would do well in G and not considering anyone else. So apart from the page content, we also have GA code on every page which Bing might not like.

Well in fact we haven't really been optimising for G, rather we have been putting up content that we thought our visitors would be interested in. But, whatever, we rank well in G for quite a few terms, but are nowhere in Bing which irritates.

Despite that we are in an industrial B2B niche sector I know there are searchers of relevance in Bing because I also run Bing Ads which often collect them. I would estimate in the UK there are probably 10-20% as many relevant surfers on Bing as there are on G in my very focussed niche. So not massive but nevertheless I would like to appear for them and not just rely on the B Ads.
