    So after getting hammered in google I decided to try and see the perspectives of bing/yahoo potential power. I have been searching through the board for some tips about it but I managed to find only phrases like 'EMD`s helps a lot' and 'their algorithm is a bit different'. I hope this thread will be helpful for all of the guys that can`t deal with google and got their websites hammered. Thanks for your share in advance.

    The algorithm is different but the same methods still work for the most part. You still need keyword rich content, backlinks, time, etc. I could use some tips too, if someone is kind enough to share. I have some sites ranking perfectly for google but not bing, even though a lot of work was put in. Then some URLS ranking for bing but not for google. The first case occurs much more often though

    They have a slightly different algorithms but you should essentially do the same thing for all 3 search engines. No need to change your optimization strategy for them.

    It is relatively easy to get rankings in Bing (Yahoo uses the same results as Bing now) than compared to Google. Building a good amount of backlinks + content on your site should easily work. Besides that there isn't anything else in regards to optimizing for Bing. And yes, EMD's are loved by Bing.

    Traffic from Bing is more converting as compared to Google, so get your Black Hat on and start building links.

    EMDs, and link anchor text. Yahoo/Bing eats it up...
