    Google wannabe stuff =| ….I’d love that Bing had a more original or different point of view, philosophy or a different way to rank sites but this is not more than another copy-paste of the same Google’s bla bla bla zZz zZz … Nice to read in the comments how people are interested in what Bing says :sarcasm:

    I have to ask what they now think the old Bing Webmaster Guidelines were supposed to be.

  • robthespy

    To be fair, they aren’t claiming these are new guidelines. They are publishing them now. And it’s smart.

    I think most of us can agree that Google’s results aren’t all that different from Bing’s, in terms of relevancy.

    I’m actually impressed with the approach Bing is taking in engaging SE pros and end users (searchers). They are doing it very agressively and intelligently- IMO..

    Yes, much of it is stuff Google has been doing for years…but google has taken more heat over the last year than they were prepared for. Not to say they’re on the ropes, but they’re no longer cute- “Hey, look how cool we are…Doooodles!”

    bing smells blood!

    Finally, bing is trying to establish some kind of standards for webmasters to follow.

    “publishing them now”. I don’t think people realize they have been publishing guidelines for webmasters for years.

    What’s a Bing? I would trust the seomoz beginners guide to seo over their crap

    I have gone
    through the guidelines yesterday. Found nothing different from Google webmaster
    guidelines. But i am happy to read because Bing also want to improve search
    result and try to prevent spamming. I have account in Bing webmaster but not
    enough time to maintain it. Now i am thinking why not giving Bing chance to
    rank my site because i am watching few traffic is coming through Bing. By the
    bye guidelines are helpful for webmasters.

    I actually think that Bing is being more transparent with their SEO (link building section) guidelines. They appear to speak black and white, unlike others who still leave a lot up to interpretation.

    Good point @JasonDiller:disqus I totally agree with you!

  • http://twitter.com/AlexHemedinger Alexander Hemedinger

    I second that. I mean who really forsees Bing being used more than Google. Without using Bing’s webmaster tools, you will still be indexed. :)

    Aw, I think it is really sweet… maybe soon they’ll restrict access to keyword data, just like daddy….

  • A1 Brandz

    Finally one more Webmaster guideline to follow (except Google). Yes, Bing is now going to set some standards like Google does.

    I think their further plan will be some algorithm Update like Google Panda or Penguin….

  • treepodia

    I do agree with this. It’s so ho hum, unfortunately.
