    Hi there!


    I am running a blog from last one year. My average traffic is 2000 - 3000 page preview and 1000-1200 unique visits. About 95% of traffic I am getting from Google search but nothing from Bing & Yahoo search engine.


    I have submitted my site about 8 month ago in Bing webmaster tools. In fist 15 days I got 45-70 unique visitor from Bing & Yahoo. But later time it stopped to send my any traffic. Even a single visit :(. I have checked my Bing Webmaster Tool dashboard but there is no crawl error. It indexed all of my pages.


    I am running my blog from Blogger with custom domain.


    Please help me... :(

    As long as you're getting visitors from Google you're good. Bing and Yahoo are drunk.

    Bing and Yahoo traffic always dwarfs Google traffic. I have a site with almost 80k impressions/day and thousands of clicks and yet Bing is like 50. lol

    I've never seen Bing bring in anything considerable on any site.

    I do mostly local SEO, but I get 80% of my stuff from google. It just is what it is, and the niche also makes a difference. Google is king for now.

    There's nowhere near as much info on how to rank for bing and yahoo here on the forum than for google.

    Honestly in my experience and bing or yahoo ranking is a bonus. I'd just focus on G as that's where most of the traffic is anyway.

    I still remember one of my blog ranked on the first page of yahoo and bing with just few backlinks in the starting days. But it was on page 15 in G. I always focus myself to GOOGLE instead of wasting time and brain with yahoo and bing

    As you said, getting 95% traffic from Google search then why you worrying about Bing/Yahoo. Keep concentrate on Google traffic it will be better forever.

    i don't know why you are so worry. it is the fact that almost 80% of the traffic is always from google, and if you are not any traffic from yahoo bing then this should not be the problem for you. for safety purposes just login to bing webmaster tool and check if they send any private message, if not again re submit your site's xml site map there. hope you will get results.

    No need to worry about Bing or Yahoo rankings. They have little traffic. 80% to 90% of the traffic comes from google. There are a lot more people using google than bing or yahoo. Just focus on ranking on google, any rankings on yahoo or bing is a bonus.

    I know there are a lot of people saying screw yahoo and bing - and only worry about google.

    I wonder if maybe that's an area that can be exploited. Look for niches that normally would have extremely high traffic (and in turn are extremely competitive). Then, instead of trying to rank on google, try to rank on bing / yahoo. In theory, there would be less competition. Ultimately, even on those high volume keywords, there is still enough volume on bing / yahoo to make it profitable.

    80k impressions a day from Google and 50 from Yahoo & Bing?

    GTFO. One of the most disgusting lies I have ever read.

    No shit why you are banned.

    Bing traffic for me is the best.

    I don't know why.

    If you're getting absolutely zero from yahoo/bing then something is a bit broken, as they'll fall for every old seo trick in the book. On the other hand, if you are getting a few clicks from them, but 90%+ from google - relax, probably just means you understand search better than they do!

    I have a hyphenated emd this happens to. Bing and yahoo lap it up (page 1 #6), google won't rank it at all (apart from random LT terms)
