    I'm not a *specialist* for bing, but you are welcome to ask questions.
    a test i've made about a year ago, comparing some factors in bing and google, I arrived to these results for bing:

    put more focus on number of links rather than quality
    more focus on domain name and urls - this is very important.
    meta title
    domain age
    on page less less important than off page (comparing to google).

    what bing is not falling for like google:
    blogs
    wikipedia links
    less capable than google in of identifying synonyms

    hope that this will help, if you have any other Qs hit me up.

    Thanks, I really appreciate your answer.. For backlinks, so you said we must focus on number not on quality, but I read somewhere else that we supposed to focus on quality, based on your experience, what kind of backlinks is recognizable by Bing? is it from directory submission, article submission, forum, blog comment, social bookmarking or anything else?

    I'd have to agree with "somewhere else" on this one. I've noticed with my own sites which have only a handful of quality links often perform well on Bing. There's usually a delay of a couple of weeks vs Google (e.g. if you rank well within 2 weeks on Google, expect it to be 4 weeks with Bing).

    All other advice I'd say is spot on, though I'd say Bing pay less attention to keyword inclusion in the domain than Google seem to be doing recently.

    I'm always pro quailty links - and in general, for white hat SEO - quality links are the name of the game. Quality even surpasses the relevancy (in my point of view) on link building campaign.

    Regarding bing, with tests i've made, comparing to big G, I've noticed that bing is more interested in number of links rather than their quality. Since bing still pays attention to the "no-follow" attribute, you got to choose your blog commenting wisely.
    other than that - directory submissions, artiles, SMOs - all help.

    you can test this for youself, check for your competitors in some micro niche, see what backlinks the top 5 have.

    anyways, good luck with that man.

    From my personal experience B*ng seems to give weight to links of all types and seems less worried about quality than G. So you can throw in some of those directory links maybe using some of the free automated submitters posted on this forum.
