I blog daily for numerous websites and receive the majority of my traffic from Google. Rarely, I'll get great traffic from Bing but I'm not sure what i should be doing specifically to help improve my article rankings in bing.

I'm on page one of google for a number of blog posts but i can never seem to rank in Bing.

Can anyone offer any advice?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld ModelRania

Firstly, check that bingbot is actually crawling your site. If it's not, then that's where to start.

Consider Bing's Webmaster tools as it'll help you explore the problems you may have.

From my experience, make sure you have good, unique page titles without making them spammy. Good anchor text links will help, and you could consider using h1 as it does work.

In addition, good incoming links from sites that bingbot crawls will always help.

That's just for starters.

I suggest you to keep these three points in mind:
1. Bing prefers editorial links.
2. Exact-match domain names count more in Bing.
3. More content on the page and on the site.

I think Bing also takes social media data from FB and twitter more seriously than Google.

Google loves all kinds of links: links from directories, links from articles, links from blogs. Links in blogroll's, links from resource pages. You name it, Google values it. Although Bing follows all kinds of links to discover new content, and does place some value on all types of links, the links that Bing values the most -- by far -- are editorial links. By "editorial link" I mean a link that appears within a block of content. This includes, primarily, links within the content-portion of web pages and the text of articles and blog posts. Bing doesn't put much value on links from directories or resource pages the way Google does. So to rank in Bing you need to put more focus into gathering these kinds of editorial links. Fortunately, all of these additional links you gain in an effort to rank in Bing will also help your rankings in Google.

Bing has been applied Yahoo search technology, as you can search one keyword in both the 2 engines, you will find the rank of some domain are nearly the same. So bear in mind, pay more time on the title, keywords and description on your blog.

Bing more concentrates on on paging factors, so for ranking in bing according to mine we should include good unique quality content in website, update site with fresh content regularly.
