    Client Challenge

    We have a call with the client this Friday and need some good advice to solve this. BHW support will be rewarded for what impresses our client with a thank you payment

    Background:

    White hat SEO client in a very competitive niche with black hat SEO done.

    Client just switched from classic ASP to .NET. Google was picking up the mobile version of site instead of the regular version & we assume Yahoo/Bing did as well

    Anyone seeing that they Yahoo/Bing merged has caused 1 search engine, as they both show the same organic results?

    6 days later Google re-indexed site and the Home Page/Rankings did come back.

    Bing still has not put back sites home page in the Search Results -

    What we have done so far:

    1) Did add the Meta info for Bing
    2) Logged in & submitted URLS that were not being crawled (such as sites's home/index page)
    3) Added the XML site Map

    In the Log files, it does look like Bingbot is hitting the index page.

    Will continue to focus on quality content & links etc. But anything else we should be doing?

    trying to keep the links natural with linkbait to earn them vs. link wheels. But for now just need to get them back in the search engine.

    This is as natural as it gets... it's no linkwheel.

    Unfortunately, the indexing process for Yahoo and Bing it's not the fastest by any means. The advantage there (my experience) is that
    you can climb up the rankings faster, especially if your URL carries your keywords.

    When added a good number of backlinks with proper anchor-text (white-hat:pR, articles, etc) the results tend to be fast.

    So far what you've done follows the right steps for the indexing, I would include some quality backlinks from sources I mentioned before to
    speed up the process. I have had good results with it.:)

    P.S. What BassTrackerBoats suggested is not unnatural... It's a great way to strengthen your rankings without "issues"
    because the links are not pointing to your MAIN site. They strengthen the properties that LINK to you. And if you are strong
    enough, no search engine will ignore you...my opinion.

    I think you have done what is required... Yahoo and Bing takes some time to update their results... You can do some basic things like press release and some paid traffic from them.

    If you do press release make sure they are picked up by Yahoo and Bing News and if buy paid traffic it should be from them...

    Some time paid traffic or press release brings more attention from them... :)

    That's the beauty of that structure... there is no blast of links to your main site, there is only one outbound link on each property and thus no footprint!

    Randomness=uniqueness.

    Get the thought of a "link wheel not being good" out of your head and follow the rule above and you can use ANY structure you see fit..

    Thanks for the advice and clarification BHW. The site is starting to get indexed again but we still need to get some of the original rankings back
