    Hey all,

    I was just noticing how easy it is to rank in bing/yahoo, and how after my sites got hit by penguin, alot of my traffic comes from bing/yahoo... Their results also seem more accurate, as they basically rank those sites with the most links, unlike the new google algorithm. So I've been thinking, what if all blackhatters started using BING? There can't be many people who use a search engine as often as internet marketers, so why not put those searches to good use. Bing has gained market share 8 consecutive quarters, and is at an alltime high lets keep that going.

    This has several benefits:
    1. Since Blackhatters are often at the top of results on bing, it would be supporting each other.

    2. It would increase bing's market share slightly, possibly scaring google away from all their crazy algorithms that do not work.

    3. It would diversify the search engine game, so that even if you were hit by one, you would likely do well on another.

    4. I actually think bing has better, more relevant results in most cases.

    I know that we aren't a huge community and it would make a small impact, but so is it when there's something big that needs to be changed.

    Let me know what you think.

    Bing only gets about 20% of the sort of traffic G gets. I havent found it as easy to rank there as you...Sometimes its taken a long time but the upside is once I hit page 1 in Bing I know Im staying there.

    But yes google first, but you want your sites listed on all serps

    Of course. Yahoo/Bing combined get about 30% to google's 65% of the total search market share. but if that begins to shift to being more equal, it will ensure google changes the way they do things, and will create alot more balance. I see google spending way more resources on fighting blackhat then bing. Bing seems to be working more on helping the user experience, which is why they are gaining market share.

    If ya can't rank in Google, it's cause you don't know SEO .... Use EasyWPSEO or SEOPressor on ALL pages, get your kw density up, then do a press release with an SEO optimized PR that is focused on your main keyword ... Be sure to build a couple high pagerank Twitter profiles and tweet about the pages, and share them on g+, and facebook, and linkedin. You should also use theming well, and seo-siloing as well.

    Honestly I won an SEO contest..well I came in like 3rd for ranking for the kw SEOPressor, and to be honest ^^ that is all I did, and it was a PR3 blog page that one, and it did not have seopressor in the domain name.

    It's not about what internet marketers use, it's what people use. And they don't use Bing!

    This does not help at all, I obviously know the basics of seo.. However, ranking for seopressor, is very different than ranking for an extremely competitive niche. haha if it was that easy my portfolio of websites would all be ranking #1, and this forum wouldn't exist.

    Ranking on Bing/yahoo is HARDER than ranking on google. That being said, you aren't as subject to the whims etc therein.
