New webmaster tools strategy and a partnership with Yahoo will make Bing more significant.
Will Bing SEO be as important as Google SEO? this has been the hot debate ever since Bing was launched. Soon Yahoo and Bing will come together forcing on-line marketers to take Bing more seriously in SEO positioning.
At the SMX Advanced conference Janet Driscoll Miller of Search Mojo spoke on this topic. Her main point is that some businesses are already seeing better results from Bing than they do Google, eventually Yahoo will start using Bing for searches, this will see Bing’s share of the search market grow dramatically. If you think Bing is already powering facebook searches it really does become unmissable.
Bing has now added a tool in its Webmaster tools that you lets you see the types of links that point to you. You can actually see the value of each link letting you judge its worth and this will help you to go after similar links.
We all know that Bing’s Webmaster tools have not exactly been great since its inception but they are undergoing a redesign. The new tools will provide webmasters with a simplified, more intuitive user experience that provides a comprehensive view of how Bing indexes their sites.
Google is the leading search engine used by on-line marketers and SEO companies to promote products due to its easy to use and accessible Webmaster Tools. The Bing search engine is now no longer insignificant, once Bing has teamed up with Yahoo and launched its new Webmaster tools it is going to factor into the working of all SEO businesses.
