What still works after al lthese animal updates from G?
Is Bing and YHOO worth ranking for?
nobody knows or it's secret?
Get links from relevant, aged, authority sites with unique content similar to the niche you're promoting.
Ideally you want your link to be placed on an important page of the domain (a page that is linked to from the domain's homepage).
As you can imagine, it is fairly difficult to get these type of links, but they are worth it in my opinion.

There are lots and lots of SEO strategies still working very well. A lot will come down to your goals, budget and resources. What types of project/businesses are you working on?
Bing and Yahoo provides me approx 5% of the traffic, although the bounce rate is always quite high:
good social presence!
I think you should focus Google. Trust me - if Google rank it, Bing and Yahoo will rank it too
Bing and Yahoo value quantity over quality compared to Google recently. They also seem to value EMDs quite heavily. I wouldn't bother 'trying' to rank for them. Rankings will come naturally for those Search Engines, plus the traffic is negligible compared to that of Google.
Ditto for bing and yahoo on my site.. imo not worth focusing too much attention.
my current strategy is trying to create awareness of my website brand name through offline methods (direct traffic) to be independent from SEs.. not sure if its working very well for now..
Creating content, content and content works best. Get 1 or 2 links a month and you score well. Forget link building.
High PR, niche relevant, guest blog posts. Score these for the win.
Bing and Yahoo have ~25% of the market, so they're definitely worth ranking in. Whenever I push Google SEO, I always end up ranking well in the other search engines automatically, and usually a lot quicker.
My favorite strategy right now is the following:
Light blog commenting. Low OBL. Don't worry about PR. Only Highly Relevant Sites. High Anchor Text Variety.
Some Web 2.0's, updated weekly with 750-1,500 word articles. Perfect English. No spinning. 100% unique, and only posted on one site. Build some decent links to these sites. The goal is to push these up to be an "authority" which further pushes your site as the ultimate authority in the market.
Social Media. Post a few times a week. Try and get interaction with your audience. Maybe hold a contest to try and get more retweets, likes, etc. Definitely include Google+.
And there's a few others, but those 3 are definitely the base of my strategy.
Hope that helps. ~englandrm
