If you’re an SEO or simply a web developer, blogger, or online publisher, then understanding that in’s and out’s of Bing is important. For starters, it’s important to learn how and what you can do in order to rank well in Bing. In order to do that, you’d need a Bing SEO Guide. Where can you find one? Simple. BingTricks.com.
BingTricks.com is a site I discovered the other day on while reading an article on PCWorld.com about Bing. It is a simple self hosted WordPress blog owned by Sorin Guleac from Romania. The site seems new, but then again, so is Bing. So as Bing grows, I am sure the blog will too. So far in Sorin’s development, he has worked four building up categories: Bing News, Bing Tools, Bing vs Google, and Tips & Tricks. In the tips category is where you’ll find a very detailed Bing SEO Guide.
The Bing SEO Guide is great. It gives you a very detailed explanation of Bing and how to optimize your site. The guide includes technical recommendations, which basically offer suggestions on how to use HTML, robots.txt, permalinks, and watch for malicious software. Also included in the SEO guide are guidelines. These guidelines offer tips on how to attract people to your site from Bing and how to fill your webpages with valuable content. The last section informs you about forbidden things on Bing. I found this section to be helpful because it’s important to understand what’s allowed and what’s not. I get quite a bit of traffic from Bing and I’d like to keep it.
All in all, if you’re looking for a nice resource that will help you learn more about Bing and how to optimize your site, I’d take a look at BingTricks.com and perhaps subscribe to the RSS Feed. I know I’ll keep this source added to my Google Reader for awhile.
