  • costaryan,

    I recommend three sources of information for Bing:

    1. Bing Webmaster Center's online Help topic Guidelines for successful indexing.

    2. Bing Webmaster Center's blog -- especially those articles in the SEM 101 series. The first post in the series was Search Engine Marketing 101, a new blog series and it builds up from there. One article in particular that rounds up most of the pertinent blog content on SEO is the article Search Engine Optimization for Bing. That will be of interest to you.

    3. Check out the great SEO tool from Microsoft called the IIS SEO Toolkit. You can learn more about it in the blog article IIS SEO Toolkit 1.0 hits the streets!

    I hope you find all of this helpful in your efforts to optimize your website! Good luck!

  • Hi

    For some specific advice related to your site could you please post the URL?  Use a URL shortening service if you don't want it to show up in searches.

    This guide is very useful for SEO tips.

  • Thanks.I had submitted my website to Bing.The other links are of huge interest.

  • My website url is "dunbooctiv dot com"

  • Agree with Rick DeJarnette. Also, read Google's SEO Starter Guide:
    http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2008/11/googles-seo-starter-guide.html
    I took a quick look at the source code of the homepage and noticed that the keywords had not been separated with a space after the commas, h1 was missing, the two sentences in the description should be separated by a space after the period etc., so try to pay more attention to details when you write HTML code. The HTML code should be SE friendly. That's just my personal opinion.

  • You 're right.I think i disregarded more than allowed in writing HTML code.This may be the major reason which makes Google only index my home page.I'll keep an eye and pay more attention in future.i guess the header tag(H1) should be writen into body tag instead of head one.I would like to know whether h1 must be used before h4 for instance or it does not matter.Thanks for links!

  • The site has a total of four (4) backlinks and that's far too little to help rank the site better on SERPs. Your site needs to be seen by searchers to drive more traffic.

    So, it's high time you started to accumulate a good number of quality backlinks to your pages. Good places to get backlinks are through blogging, forum posting, article and directory submissions, web 2.0 profile pages like this one: Mexabet profile in Tumblr.

  • If your music site provides video, you can get it included in Bing video search through Media RSS (mRSS) feed. This blog post gives details of how to do just that: http://www.bing.com/community/blogs/webmaster/archive/2008/11/21/pubcon-2008-video-engines-new-kids-rocking-the-web.aspx

  • Thanks a lot. As it's a new website nomber one spot would be an illusion.But i'm working it through Facebook,Twitter, Youtube,Digg,Myspace.I'm going to follow that link above.

  • I wish I knew this myself. Every web site I create seems to fade into oblivion :)

    Greets,
