What do you guys think are some of the biggest differences to rank on Bing & Yahoo vs. G?
Bing and Yahoo do not tend to penalize you for spammy stuff. At least not to the degree that Google is. I have plenty of sites penalized in google due to various cutting edge seo experiments that still get decent traffic from Bing Yahoo and are ranking high. Too bad that's only a fraction of what google can offer.
To add to what Nick Flame wrote above, ranking in Google now takes longer than it used to and it's much more difficult now, whereas in Yahoo! and Bing it's still fairly easy to get a first page ranking with a good amount of spammy backlinks.
Thanks guys. For anyone who has paid attention, what % of traffic do you see from Bing & Yahoo?
I would say most of my current traffic comes from bing and yahoo, 80% the other I'm trying to get my bad links revoked, so google at the moment is f#@# from behind
BingHoo usually provides anywhere from 10-20% of Google traffic (depending on the niche obviously)
Binghoo = Spamming G like it's 2010... Spam heavy anchors and you'll be fine. I've yet to have a test penalized in Binghoo...
There are still some high volume niches with competition in Binghoo, but for the most part it's easy to attain.
I agree with Nick Flame. Ranking with spam is much easier with Yahoo and Bing. Just had a site hit #4 on Yahoo and #7 in bing. It is at #134 in Google.
For bing and yahoo, all sorts of links still work, but for google, its always back and forth.
