3 SEO Tips to Optimize Your Blog For Bing
BING, the new search engine from Microsoft, has come blasting on the search engine scene and taken the Internet by storm. However, many Internet Marketers and Bloggers are unsure of how to optimize their blogs for it. Here are 3 tips to help you optimize your blog to get the huge amount of traffic that is using BING.
Tip #1 – Use your keywords in the domain name. I’ve had some new sites rank very well in BING simply because they have their keywords in the domain. This is something you want to keep in mind when registering new domains.
Tip #2 – BING loves backlinks. Just like Google and the old MSN search engine, BING loves anchored backlinks pointing back to your site. It seems they may have taken a few pages out of Google’s page book about ranking websites.
Tip #3 – Lot’s of text. From my experience, the blogs that are doing the best have very long post. It seems that BING puts a lot of importance on the amount of text on each page. While I do have pages ranking well that have the average amount of text on a page, the ones that are really doing well have more than 600 words of text on them.
So there you have it. My top 3 tips on getting your blog ranked in the first page of BING search engine. To my surprise, the traffic that BING is delivering has converted really well. It’s too early to tell yet whether they will be a real contender to Google, but I’ll take every bit of traffic they’ll send me.
