    I have recently put up a site that I have been trying techniques on to see how quick I can get into the top 10 of google, and hold a spot. I was able to accomplish this already with a few keywords, and have been holding for about a week. My question is how come I do not show up in any of the other search sites at all. How long does it usually take for MSN, YAHOO, ETC to catch up with google? Are most of these blackhat techniques usually aligned to what google likes to see?

    I wish I knew about Yahoo (they take forever), but I do know that if you add scraped content from MSN to your page, the MSN spider goes nuts for it. I mean, constant spider bombardment. I guess MSN just likes itself in the mirror...

    Create a dummy rss feed, then open some accounts on Yahoo, load your feed into My Yahoo and ping it a few times. I added mine to yahoo through 4 accounts, used feedburner and just updated the rss feed 4 times or so in a few days. I personally find Yahoo, from a spider sense, more active than Google, especially if your site is php, which Google seems cautious of.

    Anyway, when i did that yahoo's spiders hit within 24 hours, can't remember how long it took to get fully indexed, but at least it woke the spiders up.

    I do this for all the search engines. I feel like it's my little trick! :D

    yahoo does things at its own rate and loves some quality links to each page, msn on the other hand seems to like blog comment spam... hows that for a laugh?

    I never target Yahoo/Bing, but I've heard they like exact match anchor links more than Google. Also know you have to submit your sitemap through Yahoo Webmaster Tools, which is a fucking nightmare.

    If you target Google and can rank on it then let other search engines take their time and come in.
    Fact is Google is the pacemaker when it comes to search engines so if you can index Google you will with
    Bing and Yahoo. Usually they are slower at indexing your pages than Google.
