Bing is the sleeping giant of the SEO world.

By the end of 2021, Bing had 7.2% of the search engine market share!

And it doesn’t look like it’s stopping any time soon.

The platform has been growing and continues to grow all around the world-

bing search engine growth

(I call this moment the “Bing Bang”. It never caught on. But I’m still trying!)

This small but significant shift in power has created a new opportunity for SEOs.

So I’m going to show you how to take advantage of that change with my Bing SEO guide.

Is Traffic from Bing Valuable?

Many site owners feel mobile and desktop searches on Bing and Yahoo are not as valuable as searches on Google.

I’m not sure why this would be the case. They’re still people, right?

In my experience, they are just as valuable and even surpass Google.

I decided to dig into my own data.

Here’s what I found:

Bing SEO Traffic Performance

The data tells me everything I need to know.

Incoming traffic has:

  • Has a lower bounce rate
  • Visits more pages
  • Spends more time on site
  • Subscribes to my list more
  • Clicks more affiliate links

Check your own data before passing judgement though!

The Great Bing Optimization Advantage

The best thing about change is – people hate change.

Change pushes people out of their comfort zones and humans are wired to avoid that.

So for those willing to evolve with change there is a great opportunity here.

Bing Google Ranking Factors

Since 1998 SEOs have purely focused on ranking sites in Google.

 That’s two decades of focus on one platform! 

Because Google has the search market share, in turn results are highly competitive.

In that time Bing has been largely ignored.

And SEOs write off trying to improve their rankings by saying…

“If you rank well in Google you’ll also rank well in Bing”.

But is that the case?

Well… not quite:

bing visibility

Their algorithms are remarkably different.

Just compare results for the same term and you will quickly see what I mean.

It’s important to understand those key differences to take advantage of ‘The Big Bing’

(it will catch on).

Bing Ranking Factors

So what makes Bing tick at its core?

Here’s a list of the most important SEO best practices to optimize your website.

bing ranking factors

Let’s take a closer look at each of those points-

#1 – User Engagement

One of the strongest signals in Bing is user-engagement.

They measure this through a term known as ‘pogo sticking’ which is when someone performs a search, clicks on a result and then clicks back to return to the search results.

Bing Pogo Sticking

So similar to bounce rate but if lots of people visit your site from the search results and click the ‘back’ button –

This is a clear indication of a poor user experience.

However if lots of people visit your site from the search results and do not go back to them to continue searching – This is a very very strong signal.

#2 – Click Through Rates

Bing also measures click-through rates from its search results pages.

They use that data combined with the user experience data above to improve its conversion rate results.

For example: (all things being equal)

If the #1 position gets a 20% click-through rate.

But

The #2 position gets 40% –

 This is a clear indication that the #2 result is more relevant.

This means you have to write your titles and descriptions with humans in mind.

But you also need to be specific with your target keywords. Think keyword based click bait.

#3 – Social Signals

There is a lot of debate on whether social media signals impact Google’s search rankings.

I can categorically tell you with 100% certainty – that they do.
 
I’ve been using social media schemes to rank in the search listings consistently for the past 2 years.

I revealed exactly how at a recent conference.

Don’t get caught up in the change debate just make sure social signals are part of your social media SEO strategy now. They affect your rankings in both Bing AND Google.

But this search engine has a much stronger reliance on social signals than Google.

You should use the power of social media to your advantage and you will see benefits in both search engines.

#4 – Bing Authorship

Google famously introduced (and then killed) Authorship allowing people to claim content they have written.

This meant Google Analytics could determine who are the true experts in any given industry. Granted they have killed Authorship for now (but are still tracking who is who via entities & schema data).

Bing also had it’s own version Authorship after they integrated Klout verified snapshots.

But Klout is now dead as well.
 
So instead you should take advantage of the connected pages feature powered by Bing-

bing connected pages

Get started by adding all of your profiles and hit the verify button.

Easy!
 

#5 – Backlinks Are Less Important

Links aren’t held in such high regard as they are by Google.

But, they’re still playing a role in Bing’s SEO strategy.

To quote a recent article from Search Engine Land:

“A Microsoft spokesperson from Bing told us, “There are a variety of factors that come into play with ranking signals, links being one of them.” They also explained that links are still a very important ranking signal, and they don’t see that changing any time soon.”

I’d recommend that you continue to build links to your site but avoiding spammy link schemes, link farms and obvious link manipulation.

It will help you on the majority of search engines including Yahoo and Bing.

But pay close attention to Bing’s movements over the next few years.

#6 – Inbound Anchor Text

Bing places more emphasis on the anchor text usage than Google does.

If you want to rank for ‘Blue Widgets’ you need links that use ‘Blue Widgets’ as the anchor.

They aren’t as good as Google at keyword matching. While Google does well with recognizing synonyms and context around a keyword, Bing needs spoon-feeding.

The risk here is that over optimising your anchor text will trip the Google Penguin filter.

So the trick here is…

Make sure that the link count coming from high authority sites focus on exact match anchor text!

While the others use a mix of anchor terms.

That will allow you to rank in Bing while dodging Google Penguin.

#7 – Keyword Domains Matter

Having your target keyword in your domain name will help you to rank easier.

It isn’t critical but target keywords do help.

Bing Keyword In Domain

However Google does have a filter for exact match domain names.

So it is best to use a domain that includes your keyword but isn’t exact match keywords.

The only problem with that is…

#8 – Page Authority

The other thing that you will notice when comparing Google and Bing results – Bing doesn’t place as much weight on backlinks!

BUT: It does place weight on site authority.

It is much harder to rank a new domain in Bing than it is in Google. Domain age matters!

Having an aged domain will give you an extra leg up across Bing’s results.

 So if you have an older domain that includes your keyword – you are golden!
 
If you just have an older domain your still in a strong position.

Where you don’t want to be is with a brand new domain.

#9 – PageRank Is Irrelevant

PageRank is a measurement of authority created in the early days of Google. It is not as relevant as it once was and hasn’t been updated for a long time now.

However it is important to note:

Google PageRank does not seem to have any correlation with Bing rankings.

#10 – Content & Keyword Density

Bing prefers sites that have lots of unique content which is also of good content quality.

They place a much higher value on longer more engaging content than shorter content and their image search beats other search engines.

You need to use Bing with specific search terms you want your page to rank for.
 
It is much better to focus on 1 page per keyword.

But again be careful you don’t trip Google Panda by offering duplicate content and keyword stuffing.

They also tries to eliminate duplicate content at the point of indexing. Redundant content is recognized and eliminated from search market result pages.

But may still be available in the index.

#11 – Site Structure & Code

Bing offer a few interesting pieces of advice around your site structure and coding.

First of all, they advise that quality content should be organized close to the surface. In other words, no content Bing views, should be more than 3 clicks away from the home page.

You should also use a broad to specific structure flow. So you might go with:

SEO > Link Building > Strategies or Garden > Furniture > Chairs
This will keep the search algorithm happy when it comes to crawl control & site structure.

#12 – General Onsite Optimisation

Onsite optimization is similar for Bing’s search algorithm as it is to Google.

You want to ensure you use:

  • Meta title
  • Description meta tags
  • Exact match keyword.

They place a lot of emphasis on title tags but keeps the user-engagement signals in mind. You should only have one H1 tag per page to establish the main topic.

Then use the H2 and H3 tags to talk about subtopics.

It is also worth noting that sometimes Bing will swap out your meta description with your H1 tag in the search results so be creative with your headings.

Don’t just rely on exact headings.

#13 – HTTPS Is Not A Bing Ranking Factor

Google recently announced that HTTPS is now used as a ranking signal.

Although a very minor one.

Bing Lead Program Manager Vincent Wehren said that HTTPs is not a ranking factor. They don’t want to mess around with rankings based on a factor that has no real relevance.

(Check out my complete SEO checklist for 2024).

How To Get Indexed In Bing

Recently they announced that instead of sitting and waiting for your page to get crawled…

You can actually submit your URL’s to its search engine for crawl control and then indexing.

In the announcement they stated:

We believe that enabling this change will trigger a fundamental shift in the way that search engines, such as Bing, retrieve and are notified of new and updated content across the web.

Bing

So instead of 10 URL’s a day which was the previous crawl rate…

You can now submit up to 10000!
 
Let’s take a quick look at how you submit your URL’s.

This is a very easy process – get started by using the ‘Submit URL’s’ feature that can be found within ‘Configure My Site’ section in the Webmaster Tools.

Submit URL's To Bing

Or alternatively, you can use the ‘Submit URL API’ method.

Either way, using the new submission tools means getting your sites indexed FAST.

Bing Penalties

We don’t know a whole lot about Bing’s penalties.

What we do know for sure is they are a much friendlier beast than Google.

There are certainly no crazy black and white animal updates to deal with here!

The Bing-SEO Spam Filter

The Bing Index Quality team have published a few articles on the Bing Webmaster blog that are worth reading-

They show you actual case study examples with a lot of details about each update.

It is very important that you stay on top of your outbound link profile. Make sure that you are only linking to clean and related sites as Bing will punish you for this seriously.

Reciprocal linking will also get you in trouble.

If you have experience with ranking sites in Google you will know to avoid those SEO practices.

Spam detection methods are much further behind the times than Google’s.

How To Check If You Have A Penalty

Bing makes it easy to see if your site has a penalty. Go to Bing Webmaster Tools.

Click on the ‘Summary Tool’ then look at the ‘Site Status’ section – if it shows Blocked:

Yes – your site has been penalised.

If this is the case then take a look at this post from Bing Webmaster to get out of the penalty box.

Wrapping It Up

Now you can take Bing seriously and check if it should be part of your marketing strategy!

Check your own data, review your traffic source and decide whether the search engine is worth it – It was for me!

(If you’re looking for SEO tools to check/monitor your Bing rankings, take a look at my list of the best Bing rank tracker tools).

You can use this part of the guide to optimize your site for Bing traffic if a chunk of your target market use Bing.

We covered:

  • Why Bing optimisation is valuable?
  • Free tools & resources
  • Bing ranking influences
  • Bing penalties

Now it’s over to you!

Do you get any traffic from Bing’s search engine and the Yahoo search engine at the moment? If you do – how does it perform compared to Google traffic?

Frequently Asked Questions

If you want to increase your Bing ranking, then you need to review what the search engine wants and ensure your website is optimized to those factors. Bing Analyzer is a great tool that gives you a list of suggestions to improve.
Yes. Bing and Google are different because they have similar ranking influences, but they place a stronger reliance on different ones. Bing focus on their users and social signals whereas Google put a strong focus on backlinks. Optimizing for these factors will give you a boost in both search engines.
To get your website indexed in Bing you can go to the Webmaster Tools, and within the ‘Configure My SIte’ section you can use the ‘Submit URLs’ feature. Add each URL (one per line) and click ‘SUBMIT’. You can add up to 10,000 a day!

  1. Hi Matthew, Great article and I was trying to access your Bing video (“Jump Start Your Bing SEO With This Free Video Training Course”) and after verifying my email address, it’s not listed as a resource. Could you help me here? I’m really interested in watching it. Thanks!

  2. The chart is dramatic, but what does the chart for total market share look like today? Is Firefox 34 adoption moving total search engine market share significantly yet?

  3. I am glad that this happened. So the search engine traffic starts to spread a little more. We can’t just depend on Google.

  4. Great post, and very thorough. Bing has always been a bit of a mystery to me. Although our page ranks very well in Google I always found it odd that the Bing/Yahoo results were totally different (and generally worse). I’m going to go through your list of tips and see if I can figure some of this out. Interestingly we get more traffic from Duck Duck Go right now than we do Bing…

    1. Oooo that is interesting, can’t say I have ever had any traffic from there so you must be doing something right

  5. I think it still needs a few months to see what actually happens on this search war. “Creating sites that users love” should be the ultimate goal for everyone on the IM world.

    1. I’m not really one for waiting to see what happens, I’m going to put everything in place so if it does happen – I’m already there.

  6. Agree with Matthew, there are a lot of users who don’t bother changing the default search engine. If they search for a few things and those searches give them the results they were after, they are more likely to continue just using that default. Hence this really is a HUGE thing for BING. I wouldn’t be surprised if Google saw a huge hit to its revenue from this as well.

  7. Great article on Bing. Lots of folks overlook this great resource for traffic. Google may be at the head of the pack right now but there is still a lot of potential with Bing and folks are missing a lot of opportunity by dismissing Bing.

  8. Hey Matt, Great post…I heard this was coming about a week ago and I was so happy because I hate google. I been using Bing for months after google robots kept busting my balls with their capcha… while trying to do research…Bing Banged Google square in the kisser I love it… this made my day….

  9. Hi MattNice post and appreciate the share.We are already spending a lot of time focusing on Bing, as a hedge against all the increased Panda/Penguin challengesI think the big one would be if/when Apple changes Safari to default to Bing like they have on SiriThis is kinda a medium sized loss for Google.To put this change in perspective, Firefox has 13 percent roughly of desktop traffic.So if half of Firefox users become Yahoo searchers, this would move 6.5 percent of desktop search away from Google to Bing powered search.Significant, but not a giant game changerFirefox is not a player at all in the mobile market, and half of search now is mobile and growing.Google is default in Android search, which is majority of mobile market.

  10. Hi Matthew, you really kick ass 🙂 This is the kind of clean and latest news information I totally love. To be honest, this “little” Firefox Update just hadn’t got through to me before reading your post.I, too, consider this to be an interesting shift in the SEO landscape and I appreciate more pressure to be wielded on Google. In my opinion, they rely on their almost monopoly status and focus on their ambition to dominate loads of different technology niches, way too much. In my eyes, the quality of the search results has diminished.When it comes to the quality of Bing traffic, I have made the exerience that Bind Ads in fact did not convert very well, but this is not true for the Bing organic traffic. Keep up the great work and stay tuned!

  11. Matt,Just had a conversation about Bing a few weeks ago where I made fun of its importance. I also knew of the Firefox & Yahoo deal but didn’t put it together!Am now furiously working on getting all of my client sites up to date for Bing search.

  12. I was just in Bing webmaster tools yesterday and was wondering what was up with the big jump in impressions from Bing all of a sudden. I thought it was something I had done.Thanks for the timely write-up. I pushed it over to reddit for you as a thanks ;).

  13. I can confirm the news WITH PROOF Matt! I do a lot of bing ads, and yesterday my clicks were THREE TIMES more than EVER before!I am sure a direct result of more people on bing…

  14. Hi Matt.I have also read a study where they say that Bing values ​​the “meta keywords” to filter spam!What do you think ?

  15. Hey Matthew, great post again.I’m loving this, although my site might be a tad new (8 months-ish), the domain isn’t (around 2 years old) – might affect things a bit?The one thing that really stands out for me is that you can actually contact Bing and get things sorted out, unlike the big G that seems to be a big brother type, concealing info and not wanting to help the little guys. Good news, in my book.

  16. Nice to see Bing getting the love!I’ve also noticed a big lift in Bing paid search volume on a client project I am working on. It now brings in over 20% of the PPC volume. It used to be more like 10%. It is definitely getting more market share. The traffic is cheaper and with half the CPA’s of Google. Quality is lower though.Organic wise, I still find it hit and miss but now I now the share is improving will pay more attention.Plus you get to see keyword data!Nick

  17. Delighted for them. I like a few of the commentators above have sites that rank very well in Bing but do piss poor in Google despite trying everything in the book.So do you thing this will hamper all the plans for big authority domains that people have been harping on about if they can now get just enough traffic from Bing / Yahoo with crap sites instead. Is it worth the effort??Gaz

  18. Fantastic news, Matt.And informative post.I recently submitted my sites to Bing, just few weeks ago…Finally the revenge against Google is coming.I am on the side of David. Will he defeat Goliath completely?

  19. Thanks for the awesome post Matt! I’ve definitely been dragging my feet with Bing, although I do I have a Web Master account setup at least 🙂 Still, time to start taking it a little more seriously I think!

  20. Bing is eeeasy to rank on. On page all done properly and PBN links will shoot you to pos 1 on Bing in no time.

  21. If the above statistics is true (bing+yahoo have 35% of US market) that shows that perhaps the time has come to change leader google from his throne. In Russia, yandex is dominated, and in China is baidu, so for google remains only European market where there is no competition unfortunately.

  22. Great post, and the move by FireFox is hardly surprising. I am one of those crazy people who manually sets Bing as their default search engine in browsers. Yes I know! My reasons for the switch are mostly because when I want to research something or really look for it on the web, I need a search engine that hasn’t been gamed by SEOs to appear high in search rankings. Interestingly, since the beginning of 2013 (when i switched my search engine to Bing) I see more relevant results in Bing than Google which is why I dumped it (google has improved btw…but still not enough). With Google I would click on links that appeared to have answers only to be fooled into looking at a completely non relevant page or worse have nothing of the sort anywhere on the page. It was truly frustrating. Anyhow, now I only use Google, if I cannot find on Bing which is probably only 10% of the time. Even then Google is mostly unable to help so its a wasted trip anyway.

    1. Very interesting – it’s a switch I’ve considered as Bing results are generally better but change and all that 😛

  23. Awesome writeup Matt. Never thought Bing would surface like this.BTW voted for your article on GrowthHackers. Thanks.

  24. Hi Matt, Thanks for the update about Bing SEO.No doubt that i saw an increase in traffic to my blog through YAHOO/BING.Everyone is surprised because everyone have been focusing on Google and their update.I have learned a lot from this. Take care and have a nice day ahead. -Oloyede Jamiu

  25. Hi Matthew,When it comes to search traffic, i never considered Yahoo and Bing. I am even not sure whether my blog is properly submitted to Bing and Yahoo or not.After reading this Big Bing theory, i am going to make sure that i am on every search engine.Regards,

  26. Alright! A new playground. LOL Even if it drops a little, there’s still money to be made. I updated but Google was still the default se. I like that Bing is more transparent. “The Big Bing” is really cute!

  27. But this is only a change in Firefox users.And Firefox has been steadily losing popularity over the years as Chrome and mobile increased.I just saw a stat that said 24% use Firefox and it’s 25% on my blog. I’d say Google let this go because they don’t see it as important long term. Or at least not important enough to outbid Yahoo.My back of the fag packet calculations say… at the very most a 6 point swing for Bing overall assuming all Firefox users accept the change… which they won’t.I’d say we are more likely to see a further fall in Firefox popularity and at best Bing/yahoo gets a boost of a couple of points.Bing and yahoo combined already had just under 30% market share in the US and this change should get them above 30%, but it’s an incremental change i think not a revolution.Perhaps a bigger threat to Google might be how well Windows 10 works out as a mobile operating system.

    1. True and there is always going to a browser war but underneath all of this is the point that when change comes, it comes – we need to be ready!

  28. Voted and shared. Great, thought provoking read. Their BWT while similar in concept to GWT offers a wealth of useful info. I wish GWT would sit up and take note.

  29. Thanks for the great insights. I have also noticed the bump and fall recently. May be Mozilla is gaining more power against the Chrome. Mozilla now can suggest which search engine I intend to use.And, when it comes to organic traffic does it matter either it is from Google or Bing? All that should matter is what they were looking for. So, bing results and conversions are also as important as Google’s. Thanks for clearing that part too.

  30. matt i am a silent reader of your blog and your blog is one my fav. Sadly i opted in to get to the Bing SEO training course but i was not redirected to any bing related course..

  31. You said user engagement was important, that if less people clicked the back button you would rank higher. Do you think it could be possible to have multiple ips go to your site from bing (so that the percentage of people who stayed on the page would go up) and make yourself rank higher?

  32. The Big Bing! Nice one Matt. Great analysis on your Google Analytics. Im sure the volume isn’t the same as Google, but Bing certainly can provide quality.

  33. Thanks for this Matt, such brilliant information that I have just been and signed up for Bing webmaster tools and submitted my site etc. None of which I had bothered to do before, great stuff!

  34. HA the Big Bing Theory ;)Those are some crazy numbers for Google to drop by.They have to be doing something to pull that around because it has to have a monetary effect on them surely?Perhaps Google will buy firefox? ….stranger things have happenedWill be looking forward to your video info on the subjectDanGreat write up Matt, just saw this over on inbound also

  35. That is a crazy amount of change for 24 hours. More than I thought it would be when I heard about it as I thought that Chrome had more browser market share these days.Personally, I like Bing traffic and have found it easier to get ranked (even with new domains) than the Big G. It’ll be interesting to see if they get power hungry as their market share grows.

    1. Hahaha then please help it catch on :POnly $300 million? Heck I’m going to get them to change the default search to this blog!

  36. Great article Matt as always. Matt having never really looked at Bing in the past, I see one of my small sites which now days is nowhere in Google is position 1 and 2 for the EMD. Is there a tool to check the monthly traffic for the keyword along with the PPC ?Kind regardsJoe

  37. Whoa that’s a huge difference in US searches. How did Google let this slip, I think they were supporting Mozilla for years 😀 Anyway, competition is definitely good for us, because one day by getting penalized by Google we might not lose our entire business…one day…

  38. I love your quality content, good thing you bring to the community these changes on Bing.So I can get ahead of my competitors in Latin America, I have little following your blog and it is more advanced than I have seen. In the Latin market there is nothing similar to your information, Latinos gurus always all the information for themselves are saved, they are too selfish, sorry for my English, I understand 80% and I’m using the google translator.Thank you for your golden information, I’m getting ahead than all my competitors thanks to you :)Now I will focus on all search engines :)Greetings from the Mexican Pacific Coast.Johnny

    1. Hey,Well I’m pretty sure a lot of my readers use Firefox so they should have spotted it :PHablas ingles muy bien, pero mi espanol is no bueno mas de tiempo!

  39. But can’t the users of Firefox just change the default search engine to Google. Like when people using internet explorer goes from Bing to Google.

  40. That’s funny, when my sites got slapped years ago from Google my Bing traffic remained steady-ish. In fact, to this day Google rarely sends traffic and it all comes from Bing. A couple of my sites rank really well, some 1st SERP for some keywords and this is all with the Good Old Days of Over Optimization.

  41. Wow great post Matt, thanks for the work.If you had to describe Google and Bing with one concept or idea (I mean just one or two words) what would they be?”Search Engine” is cheating :DI mean something like Google: Links, Bing: Authority.
