Is Bing SEO worth it?

Hi, is optimizing my website for Bing really worth it? The reason I ask is that I primarily only see seo experts talk about Google and not Bing

Thanks
Looking forward to a response

Firstly, both Bing and Google are both after the same thing. Quality.

So if you make a good website, made for users, both search engines should love your website.

But as for your question "Is bing worth it" YES! They are more than worth it. Bing has a much higher market share then you think.

Take a here look here: https://www.comscore.com/Insights/Rankings/comScore-Releases-February-2016-US-Desktop-Search-Engine-Rankings

Although reports are conflicting, I think it's safe to say that Bing have a market share (with their partners) of at least 20%. Which is a pretty awesome source of traffic don't you think? 😉

Good advice?

I have always taken the view you target Google as your main search engine as that is where 80% of your new traffic will come from but what you do to make your site rank better there has a knock-on effect in Bing yahoo etc. 

They both do pretty much the same thing in terms of what makes a site rank, Google tends to be a bit better at identifying spam sites but if your ranking well on Google it follows you won't be far different on Bing. 

Of course there are always exceptions but generally speaking target google and you won't go far wrong.

I have always found my search results to be quite different in Yahoo from Google. Google of course favors heavy links, while Yahoo/Bing is more about on-site SEO. And unfortunately, Google will penalize you for doing things Bing likes. Google doesn't let you get away with spammy tactics, keyword stuffed internal links and titles, while you can be rewarded by such in Bing.

Bing might be your business’s biggest untapped opportunity if you, like so many others, forgot that there are search engines other than Google.

Bing and Yahoo (which has been powered by Bing since 2010) together dominate 33.6 percent of the desktop search engine market share in the U.S. In certain industries, that number’s even higher: Bing and Yahoo process almost 80 percent of all searches related to education, automotive, and telecommunications, for example.

Yes, optimizing your website for Bing really worth it. I am getting a lot of traffic to one of my client's real estate website. So as per my experience I would say go ahead and optimize your website for Bing as well.

Thanks.

Guest Posting Service it just won't work for Bing. That means keyword research is going to be one of the most important steps in your optimization process.

optimizing my internet site for Bing clearly well worth it? The motive I ask is that I specifically solely see search engine optimization specialists discuss about Google and no longer Bing

As for me, it's a no. We need to focus on the bigger target which is Google, and just let the rankings fall wherever they do on Bing.

Actually you could probably increase your ROI if you looked at your target demographics. Depending on your target audience, that would determine if Bing is worth it. Google is the #1 engine for ages 13 to 34, single and or newly married, incomes in the 45k to 80k range Bing is the #1 engine for ages 45 to 55, disposable income 100k+ Yahoo is #1 in for ages 65 and over... So depending on what you're selling and what your ideal buyer profile is would determine where I would market the website.

Let me tell you the specific, on-page aspects that especially matter for ranking on Bing:
  1. Exact Match Domains. When you search for the keyword “best swiss knives” on Google, you get the following results.
  2. Exact keyword usage matters in H1 and H2 title tags, as well as in your meta description.
  3. Write high-quality content.

Yes, in my humble opinion, I think it's worth it. There might be differences between Bing and Google search algorithms but still, they are both search engines with the core fundamentals of how they work.

So if you rank high on Google, chances are you get high on Bing too.
