    So in regards to SEO and organic traffic, everything seems to be revolved around Google or at least that's what I seem to notice.

    Is the ranking system any different for Yahoo or Bing? Google seems really competitive for certain keywords, but would you get the same amount of competition in other search engines? Are there different ranking techniques for the different search engines?

    I've always wondered this, but never really found a clear answer so now I'm asking :D

    If anyone has any experience or knowledge about ranking in search engines other than Google I would very much appreciate it if you would be so kind to share your knowledge.

    Thanks!

    It is just for the reason that G brings more traffic (more traffic = more money). If Bing ever start to take over as the most popular search engine, then everyone would start talking about them in the same way.

    Now that Bing, Yahoo, and facebook are the same thing I think 40%+ of the market is now held by Bing.

    The big difference between Bing and Google is that Bing puts a lot more weight on domain age and backlink relevancy. Which makes it a lot harder to spam your way to the top like you can in google(in my experience).

    Bing also puts a crap load of weight on the keyword being in the domain name. You may want to start using the the keyword meta tag again. The down side would be the that your competitors can snag all your keywords in seconds instead of minutes...

    Thanks! So if I was ranking high for a keyword in Google then I should be at about the same place as in the other search engines? Or can the other factors have such a big impact that I can be maybe a few pages off?

    Absolutely not. Some page can rank pretty high on Yahoo but banned on google and vice versa.
    Take a look at this
    Code:

    However, as Google have over 80% search traffic, people have little to no reason to optimize for Bing and Yahoo.

    This is 100% false. I did a Xrumer blast on a newly registered domain, and ranked #1 in bing for extremely competitive keywords within two months.
