    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.
