    Ok, 42 posts in and I am just starting my first thread on here as I didn't want to come across as a noob (well not too much anyway :D )

    The thing is...I do pretty well on Google for all of my sites and to give an example:
    Site A - 403 pages indexed
    1700 yahoo BL
    Aged domain (2002)
    Sitemap

    I rank on page 1 at number 1,2,3 for all of my 11 targeted keywords but here is the rub...I only have 4 pages indexed in Bing and I don't appear anywhere.

    Hasn't bothered me before but I am getting the impression that Bing is becoming more important. Any ideas on how to rank or should I keep waiting and let nature take its course?

    I not pay much attention or effort to BING, Google is King, don't worry.

    From what I have seen, it looks like Bing is a huge sucker for aged domains.

    The only thing Bing indexed for me is a link to a zip file of the sitemap to my site. Click the link and the download box shows up...lol.

    I'm ranked #1 in bing and #2 in yahoo for my site (less than a year old) and #7 in Google. I don't get any traffic from bing or yahoo. It all comes from Google.

    Thanks, I know what you are all saying because I only care for Google too but I think I need to keep an eye on Bing as you never know, it may become more important and a traffic generator.
    I think if I can do something about it now then it will save a bit of frantic pain in the future.

    the things you need to do to make you rank in bing hurt your ranks in yahoo and google, ignore it and move on with life
