I made a video specifically for the Bing Toolbox because it has brought me a ton of search traffic and hope this will help you with your website.

Thanks Ryan! I have been missing out on lots of potential traffic by not being registered with Bing. So many thanks to you!

I didn't realize it either and this helped build my Google traffic as well. The results bing brought me led me to better rankings in Google.

Thanks for making this video! There was a day I had given up trying to verify my website as I couldn't figure out how to get it in the Wordpress. With your help, I verified with google and bing in less than 5 minutes! Incredible!

Hey Ryan.

Thanks for the training! I had totally forgotten about registering with Bing. Came just at the right time. :)

One thing though that caught my attention:

I submitted my site now and looked around a bit. I was a bit surprised that you used the "Diagnostics & Tools -> Fetch as Bingbot" function to have your site crawled instead of the "Configure My Site -> Submit URLs" function.

And then I checked back and saw that you apparently didn't have that option in your menu.

This is what it looks like in my Bing Webmaster Tools:

I have no idea if that feature is new or why that isn't showing up on your site. Just wanted to at least let you know.

Cheers
Peter

(And btw: I just checked and the site seems to be immediately indexed and apparently even ranked with some of my long tail keywords (even in a private browsing window))

Lovely! On Bing I am now top of page one for a particular key word. Google doesn't seem to know I exist.

Their algorithms are quite different. It remains to be seen which is better.

Traffic is traffic no matter which search engine it comes from. Google definitely still owns more searches but the pages I'm getting good traffic from Bing are moving up on Google because of comments and social media interaction.

Thanks

Thanks for the video. It's very helpful info. I appreciate the point you made that depending on the type of viewers/traffic you're trying to attract Bing or Yahoo may be better than Google. Are there demographic studies online about who uses what search engine, by age for example. The audio on this video was choppy by the way so I missed some of it. I will read your blog. Looking forward to the next training video. Thanks again.

I'm glad you liked it. My equipment and software are far from professional and so am I as I have only been in IM for almost 3 months. One day when I can afford the good stuff I hope to have even better videos.

From talking to Kyle he gave me the impression that bing was definitely a blue collar search engine and yahoo is very big in the cellular industry as it is the default browser for popular companies like Samsung.

Thanks
Ryan

Hi Ryan, do you only need to do the fetch pingbot for just one page or post from our site?. Or should we manually do every page/post that's published already?
Reply
ramccracken Premium
You can fetch the whole site by sending it after the domain. From that point on it is up to you if you keep fetching each URL. If you submit a sitemap and yours updates with every post then bing will already know about the post in its weekly sweep. If you want each page indexed I would submit them after you do the post, especially if it is time sensitive material.

If you fetch your domain it will Index the whole site. If you submit a sitemap it gets indexed faster and should update the spiders of all your pages. If you have time sensitive material I would index each URL as you post them

Thanks

Quick question: Why did you copy and paste the tail end of the URL and then copy/paste the whole URL? Wouldn't it be better to copy and paste the entire URL one time?
Reply
ramccracken Premium
You need the whole URL. I was thinking about google tools where you only need the tail.

Oh I see. No problem. Just wondering. Once again it was a very good brief training.

Good video. Initially I thought that you actually had to own your website (your own domain), but now after seeing this I realize that is not the case. Okay so I will give it a shot. I am getting minimal traffic already so doing this can only help.

The great thing about WA is they give you free domains to start and then you get free hosting too which saves 10$ a month.

There is also plugin to verify your site....like myself digging around in the editor may be above some...I find the plugin easier....thanks for the reminder about Bing.... Verify Bing Webmaster Tools...plugin

There are also several themes that include a header submission box that allows you to add the meta tag. For this example I needed to use a method that would work for all websites and the meta tag does that. This video was originally created for my YouTube account but I decided to share with WA as well.

I'm not a huge fan of being in the editor either but for something this simple and it makes the video more versatile. That is a great plugin and I have used it and many like it to stay out of the editor.

Thanks for the feedback and great plugin.

Unfortunately, I am unable to work with video because my sound system went out on my computer, and it may be several months before I can get a new case and PS. Do you have any other way to do the training.?

I will transcribe it for you tonight. I'm sorry you are having difficulties with your computer. I'll leave it under the training video and send you a link when I finish. Best of luck

It is definitely worth investing a few minutes to do so you can get extra customers in the door. Or i Guess it would be on the landing page in our business.
