SEO on Bing and Yahoo!

Bing may not be the most popular search engine in Spain, but it has a not insignificant market share. As for desktop, the latest available data assigns 8.94% of searches. If we add this to Yahoo!'s 2.46%, we get 11.4% of the total number of searches carried out on desktop search engines in Spain and worldwide. In addition, the introduction of artificial intelligence in Bing through the implementation of ChatGPT, makes it highly likely that this market share will increase in the coming months. All this makes Bing web positioning a must for any project that wants to succeed and not miss any opportunity. The data shown corresponds to Spain, a country with very little implementation of Bing so far. But for projects with a vocation to work on international SEO, working on SEO in Bing is practically essential.
Bing SEO is different from Google SEO

Bing SEO is different from Google SEO

The fundamentals of SEO in Bing are similar to those of SEO in Google, giving great importance to quality content and on-page technical SEO. However, Bing has some particularities that force us to work on positioning in a different way. It has its own tools such as Bing Webmaster Tools or Bing Places, and the weight of the variables associated with technical SEO in the algorithm are different to those of Google. For example, Bing gives greater importance to the social interactions of a website when it comes to generating its ranking. On the other hand, the incorporation of ChatGPT opens up a new world of possibilities in SEO.

Is it easier to rank on Bing than on Google?

Yes, firstly because Bing is more transparent in the positioning factors than other search engines like Google and, above all, because most of your competitors put little or no effort into positioning themselves on Bing. There you have a huge opportunity, and it is important to rank well before the rest of the competitors start working on SEO for Bing.

How many people use Bing in Spain?
In 2023 Bing and Yahoo! account for 4.25% and 3.99% of the search engine market share worldwide and in Spain respectively. However, this number rises to 11.41% and 11.46% respectively when we analyse desktop, numbers that by themselves justify working on the positioning of your website on Bing.

Thus, by working on SEO in Bing we can rank in dozens of search engines at the same time.
