    Bing Webmaster Guidelines Published

    First set of Bing's webmaster guidelines have been posted here:
    Webmaster Guidelines - Bing Webmaster Tools

    More of a high level document than Google's (aka geared to the business owner and not necessarily at the web master level).

    For those details the BING FAQ has more relevant details:
    http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...2B/WMC_FAQ.pdf

    No word yet on less-than-fluent quality raters being hired for manual reviews of sites like a search engine we shall not name....

    It appears at least from the 'Webmaster Guidelines' that Bing is using social signals to rank pages. Microsoft owns 1.6% of Facebook and unlike Google, Microsoft has extended their deal with Twitter. The deal allows access to the Twitter feed to display real time results.

    So do you think we're at a point that if you use Google Webmaster Tools for site tracking we need to do so on Bing as well?
    I'll need to take a renewed interest in Twitter this coming year!

    I don't think so ...

    If you are influential socially, this leads to your followers sharing your information widely, which in turn results in Bing seeing these positive signals.
    The signals being links from various websites to your site IMO.

    my keyterms are very targeted and in Bing I am killing it. but the traffic is minimal. I see Bing as a side effect , but no more.
