BING and Me and ActiveRain

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Liberty Homes RS-#62825

I kept hearing about Microsoft launching a new search engine called BING.  Google has always been the search engine of my choice and I often check other search engines to see how well my placement is.

Well, my husband and I were talking about it last night when I accidentally typed in the top search bar for something and up came "BING".  I was actually searching keywords for my website as I had made a big goof and had to go back to the backup from a week ago and redo some stuff.

Anyway, while typing in one of my keywords for Hawaii Relocation who should pop up on the first page of BING. NINE ...yes, NINE places out of TEN!

The first few spots on this first page were my website, a woohoo sally spot, website and Localism!

And then I kept scrolling down and saw the following.....Localism, ActiveRain, ActiveRain, Localism spots of my posts from different times and topics. I was jumping up and down. I am in the top spots on BING too!   

If you notice, I also put arrows on the right sides of these screen shots as well. For each topic they have a little pop up screen for each website. For the first shot it showed all the links on my website too! For Localism it showed the first snippet of the post.

Now...how cool is this?  More Juice for my ActiveRain and Localism posts.

It's not that ActiveRain was losing Google Juice...it's that it just may be that this new search engine is picking up the GOOD websites :) :)

What do you think?

Kemp:  Go to bing.com and type in keywords you use in your posts so people can find you.

Norma: what kind of keywords are you using? Are you being consistent in all your posts with your titles, tags and keywords for specific things you're writing about?

Russ: Not quite...but work hard at what I have :)

Jennifer: It sure is Microsoft :) ...and I've been registered with Windows Live for years....but finally did my profile etc. Kind of like Google profile :)

Steve: I'm sure there is competitiveness....even in the search engine world. Aren't we?

Bill: I'm sure it will. I mean... it's just like each of us..we all have our likes/dislikes and for me even IE is better for me than Firefox. Why? I like simple...and I don't have a bunch of stuff runnning in the background to mess up my use.

Joe: Hahah. I'm not changing my google habits...I'm just stating that other people may use other search engines more than others....so let's all take advantage of ALL search engines to see our placement :)

Kat: I bet you do :)

Woo Hoo! Hi I got your invitation but it only seems to work with hotmail ( no surprise with Internet Explorer). Would do me a favor? Would send me another invitation to my hotmail address, TheRealEstateTextBook@Hotmail.com. I am sure that will work.

Bada Bing!  Good for you, Sis.  I haven't even heard of Bing.  I suppose I should get out more;)  I'll be checking to see where I may or may not rank.

I was watching TV on hulu.com (as usual) the night of the Bing rollout. I didn't know what they were talking about, the week before. But I watched the excitment for a little while on hulu, then the next day, it was everywhere!
