I guess I never optimized for MSN either, Google has always been my focus.

Hmmmmmmmm. I Don't Think That Bing and Google are ranking websites in same way because when my website was not well optimized then my website on google on second page or third page and on msn and yahoo my website was on always first page. now my website in google on always first page but on bing and yahoo my website is 2nd or 3rd or 4rth page

I think the title relevancy carries more weight on Yahoo then Google; maybe it's the same for Bing.

Well it might also be similar on how we rank in Google and Yahoo.

I completely agree! We never focus on Bing because of the search volume on Google. Most of the time when you have optimization on Google, the others follow!

They say that Bing pays more attention to the authority of the site.

I think the <title> tag is given more weight by bing...

I've seen my company's website page ranked #1 for a certain keyword and this page is full of images with one line of text irrelevant to the keyword.

I cannot wait to get more specifics and info on the bing algo. I think it is too new for anyone to know exactly. Give it some time and we can dissect it much better!

With such a large search volume, everyone is after the Google rankings so most people won't even optimize for Bing or Yahoo nowadays but I think creating a mirror site, optimized for Bing and Yahoo will easily increase the referral traffic to any site.

I would love to the know the Bing algo, I like the clean look of the search engine plus the daily photos are very cool.

I think the only thing that changed with Bing was the name.

It's still the same. Just continue working on your site. However, Bing updates quickly that is why many are still puzzled if there is a special technique for Bing.

Bing appears to put a lot of stock into how long ago a domain was registered. For marketers, this means that you may look to purchase older domains if you want to get on good position in Bing.

NetSol is already promoting howlong a domain is registered effects the search engine results. So when you buy a domain next time Net Sol suggests to get a five year registration so that Search Engines know that this is a proper site.
