  1. 1. How to Drive More Traffic to Your Website in 2019 By: Greg Kristan
  2. 2. In 2018, Bing Drove 30% of Organic Traffic to TM Blast
  3. 3. By Device Breakdown • The majority of my overall organic traffic comes from desktop search which Bing makes up around ~20% • This percentage makeup is similar to what GS statcounter calculates for Bing desktop traffic in the U.S. See next slide
  4. 4. Search Engine Market Share in the U.S for Desktop Search GS Statcounter is my trusted search engine market share calculator. Their tool says if you combine Bing, Yahoo, and MSN, they have seen Bing cover 15% of the search engine share You should use this number as a baseline for your website via desktop market share. Bing Ads numbers on the bottom right are interesting, but don’t believe the 33% number as that is misleading
  5. 5. Where Is Bing On the Web?
  6. 6. Bing’s Footprint in Windows 10 • Bing is a critical component in Windows 10 devices. Bing is the default search engine in Microsoft Edge (new browser), Internet Explorer, and Cortana. • Bing is also built into Office 365 applications like Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote to name a few services.

  9. 9. So How Should I Optimize My Site for Bing?
  11. 11. Bing Webmaster Tools
  12. 12. Bing Webmaster Tools • Crawl Error Report • Crawl Control • Submit XML Sitemap • Ignore URL Parameters • SEO Reports • Manually Fetch Key Pages by Bing • Geotargeting • KW Position and CTR% Report • Disavow Bad Links
  13. 13. Bing Webmaster Tools: Crawl Error Report • Bing has a unique crawl error report in their dashboard that illustrates what type of errors their bot has encountered when visiting your site • Cleaning up 404 errors may not seem like a big deal in SEO, but giving Bing (and Google) URL’s that should be seen by bots and people can make a difference • On TM Blast, I work to have a report that reads like this to the right. You can see no errors which means Bing has a clean crawl on my site
  14. 14. Bing Webmaster Tools: Crawl Control • Crawl control is your way to limit how often Bing crawls your website. • The middle of the day is when my site receives most of it’s traffic, so I tell Bing not to crawl my site during that time. • The thought process of this is that I don’t want Bing to make my load time longer when my audience is coming to TM Blast.
  15. 15. Bing Webmaster Tools: Submit a Sitemap • XML sitemaps are something that Bing looks at when visiting websites. • Bing has specifically stated that they do not like XML sitemaps that have “Dirt” in them. Dirty sitemaps are XML files that have 404, 302, 301, and 500 status codes in them, so get rid of them!
  16. 16. Bing Webmaster Tools: SEO Report Checklist • Bing has a SEO report that they run every two weeks for your domain. These reports may uncover hidden opportunities like areas that Bing is having a hard time seeing when they come to your site • Check this report every two weeks to see if any new errors are present on the domain.
  17. 17. Bing Webmaster Tools: Ignore URL Parameters • Don’t overlook this section within Bing Webmaster Tools. Bing’s bot at times can run wild on domains and crawl all sorts of URL’s. • To prevent Bing from crawling and wasting their time on sections that don’t matter via SEO, you should manually block them in Bing Webmaster Tools
  18. 18. Bing Webmaster Tools: Manually Submitting Bing to Crawl Specefic Pages • Bing has a feature like Google Search Console where you can manually fetch pages via Bing bot for crawling. • Bing may be slower to see new content when you compare it to Google, so get in the habit of fetching pages as Bing to get faster rankings in their search engine.
  19. 19. Bing Webmaster Tools: Geo-Targeting • If your website and or business has one primary location, you should specify that to Bing. • Use the Geo-Targeting tool in the dashboard to let their bot know your location preference.
  20. 20. Bing Webmaster Tools: KW Position and CTR% Report • Having the ability to visualize the difference in CTR (click-through rate) when achieving a better position on Bing can be huge in SEO. • You can use this report when forecasting how much additional traffic from Bing you are able to get if you achieve a better KW ranking.
  21. 21. Bing Webmaster Tools: Disavow Links • Links from external sources play as a ranking factor for Bing just like Google. Bad links from bad places can demote your site in Bing’s view. • You should audit your backlink profile in a tool like SEMRush and disavow URL’s or domains that you don’t want Bing to consider when ranking your website.
  22. 22. Bing Ads Intelligence
  23. 23. Bing Ads Intelligence: Keyword Expansion • Using Excel, you can conduct Bing keyword research in the matter of seconds. • This example to the right expands on the root term “SEO Expert” and gives me additional keywords to consider as well.

  28. 28. Bing Places for Business

  36. 36. Case Study: 2 Current Clients
  37. 37. Case Study: 24% of Bing’s crawl results in Error Fix • Bing gives SEO reports every two weeks for your website. Here is an example of a notice I received that told me that Bing basically a quarter of the time came across errors when visiting my site • From a technical perspective, we were losing out on 24% cleaner pages via a crawl since Bing was wasting their time getting to 404 and 500 errors.
  38. 38. Case Study: Query Parameters Causing Duplicate Content • Query Parameters can cause major problems for Bingbot when trying to rank your website. If Bing see’s multiple versions of a URL (and other elements are not clear like canonical tags), you can run into duplicate content and thus not rank well in Bing.
  39. 39. Case Study: Removing Errors that Bing Came Across • This picture to the right illustrates the amount of crawl errors Bing encountered when crawling the website. • By using the crawl report, I was able to see what URL’s were 404’s and 500 I created proper 301 redirects to reduce crawl errors on the site.
  40. 40. Case Study: Removing Unnecessary Pages in Bing’s Index • Bing was wasting their time crawling unnecessary pages like UTM URL's, query parameters, and other facet URL’s. • Using the ignore URL parameter sections, I was able to reduce unnecessary bloat for this domain to help Bing’s crawl control
  41. 41. Case Study: Keyword Ranking Improvements • By using Bing Webmaster Tools and address technical errors, I was able to improve every target keyword for my account. Many terms improved to page 1 in Bing from technical work • SEO takes time, so I encourage you to track your performance to spot trends like this
  42. 42. Final Recommendation s Bing does not use HREFLang for different language / country specifications, so you will need to use Meta Lang Content tags Bing has difficulty with JavaScript, so make sure you are serving important content in an HTML format. If you are unable to do this, you should look into JavaScript rendering for Bing specifically Bing can use Meta Keywords as a spam indicator, so don’t use this tags to mass copy and paste the words on every page. Use the site:domain command in Bing to see what URL’s are in Bing’s index. You should compare this number to Google to see if there are any URL’s that are in Google that should be in Bing, but are not.
