I have a site ranking well in Google that won't show up in Yahoo/Bing. Any advice?

    This domain is over a year old. I took it over as admin about 4 months ago. I have a few keywords ranking on the first page in google, and several that are in the teens and 20's. I've submitted it to bing webmaster tools along with sitemap, etc, and I have 11 pages crawled and 10 indexed--in bing webmaster tools.

    For some reason, this site was just never cataloged by yahoo/bing and it appears there is still some sort of issue. I created yahoo/bing webmaster account about 40 days ago and started submitting the site, but still almost nothing.

    I've used all of bing's tools to analyze the site and there are apparently no problems.

    Any suggestions? I know there aren't many pages yet, and that's increasing a few a week with blog entries, but I would still think I should see something at this point.

    I use rank tracker every day and with regards to bing and yahoo, it's the same thing over and over: "Not in the Top 100."

    I've used spyglass quite a bit in the past but I never seem to get an accurate reading from it.

    Submit through Bing Webmaster Tools (10 urls per day max.).

    Bing/Yahoo is all about the quantity of quality links. Be careful because you can hurt your Google rankings trying to improve your Bing rankings

    If it's quantity that could be the issue. I don't have thousands of spammy links pointing at it, as I try to stay high quality. I guess I'll just wait and see as the links continue to build over time.

    I have similar issues with many of my sites. They are on page 1 of Google and yet not ranking anywhere on Bing or Yahoo.

    Same issue here for some of my sites. I hear that bing is all about website updating ie. regularly adding content and such.

    i think google is king and you get more traffic from google compare to bing or yahoo so i think you just work normally and your site will show up very soon in yahoo and bing good luck

    There's also a big lag factor with yahoo/bing search results and rankings. They just do not process new links or update their rankings anywhere near the speed at which google does this. I've had many properties ranking well in google, only to be followed up by yahoo/bing sometimes a couple of months later.
