    I own this relatively new site (about 3-4 months old) in the health/fitness/bodybuilding niche. About 50 pages of quality, handwritten content with images, videos, links to related authority sites (sources in every article). The articles are also interlinked together wikipedia style. All the articles are clickable on the sitewide top menu. I've done zero link building on this site.. basically shared my articles on reddit.. some went viral and got me natural links from bodybuilding and fitness forums and websites.

    I'm getting 1000 visitors a day from google.. and increasing pretty much every day. But I'm getting like 5 visitors a day from bing and yahoo combined.. Is there something I'm doing wrong here ? google has indexed every single one of my pages and yahoo/bing have indexed 6 or 7 pages. I'm using xml sitemaps plugin by the way.

    Any ideas why bing and yahoo hate my site? I also own a completely spammed to death black hat site in spanish and the same thing happens.. 300 visitors a day from google and 2-3 from bing/yahoo.. lol

    Leeshoes,

    Rkwebs has hit the nail on the head. Bing works differently than Google and since they have control over Yahoo's traffic as well I don't think there is much difference. Bing just has different methods and therefore the same kinds of tactics don't have the same results across different search engines.

    Here is a pretty good post on the topic,

    Best,

    u can always email yahoo and bing and ask the reason why. most of the time they are more than willing to help unlike google

    thanks for the article that sounds pretty much on point. So I'm guessing high pr blog network contextual links are the way to go in Bing? These would be the editorial links talked about in your article

    Don't forget that Google index the pages faster, that's one of the main reasons
