Bing SEO

Most of the marketers don’t consider that the second most used search engine is Bing because it has lower competition. There are Google analytics, algorithms, and updates like Hummingbird, Penguin, or Panda.

If you have a new site, do not wait for Bing to crawl your pages on its own. Make sure your webpage is indexed correctly as soon as things are up and running by submitting it to Bing. By using Bing's webmaster tools, you can also customize how often you want Bing to crawl to your site, and thus your site's indexing frequency.

A sitemap is also a tool and source of motivation for driving traffic to your website. Bing search engine demands a clean sitemap if you want this to favor you with its traffic. Create a fresh current sitemap and links to all the pages on the website. Bing puts heavy emphasis on social signals more than Google. If your website page has a high number of shares, likes, and Tweets, it will perform better on Bing than a comparable page with less social activity.

Valuable backlinks are essential for SEO strategy; Bing is following suit behind Google and evaluating the relevance or value of links in a similar manner. Bing search engine is still looking for relationships that contain relevant keywords in the anchor text. Identify the top-performing keywords in backlinks that are point to your site.

Bing likes media. While the flash is a major stumbling block for Google, Bing has no trouble reading this type of content and using it to rank your site.

Bing favors local content, delivering results that are physically close to the user above those located farther away. If you have a brick-and-mortar location, ensure Bing knows where it is.
