Is it just me or is it harder to rank for Bing and Yahoo?

    After going through my rankings of about 40 sites I realized that I can easily rank for YouTube and Google, but when it comes to Bing and Yahoo I usually don't break the top 100 and it is rare to for me to get a top 5.

    One example I have a site ranking #1 on Google yet on Bing and yahoo, it won't break top 100. Why is this?

    I'd say it's harder to obtain Google & Yahoo/Bing rankings simultaneously.

    As stated above, if you have a domain with a little age, Yahoo/Bing is still ridiculously easy to dominate with simply large blasts using automated tools- but this is likely to have reverse effects on your Google rankings.

    Just a different algorithm...I rank a lot better on bing /yahoo for certain words, and better on Google for others.

    Quantity of links generally wins through for Bing/Yahoo. My advice is focus on your Google rankings and Bing/Yahoo should follow over time.

    I always focus on Google, but I just found it mind boggling that I wouldn't rank on bing and yahoo.

    I find it much easier to rank for Bing and Yahoo as opposed to Google.

    Must be in a non-competitive niche

    Not necessarily - large scale spam blasts using SB/XRumer still works effectively for Yahoo/Bing, that's what they are probably doing- but the poster would be shooting themselves in the foot in terms of their Google rankings if they adopted this strategy.

    Bing has a very hard time indexing links that are not contextual nowadays. They don't seem to do it almost ever. Most sites in niches I'm in that are ranked on bing have millions of backlinks (mostly contextual), versus google which may have a few thousand nowadays.

    Bing requires a lot of backlinks to your backlinks in order for them to even index them. It's def not an easy task.

    Bing does NOT seem to be able to index nofollow links no matter what.
