For businesses in Denver and throughout Colorado, who are interested in promoting their services utilizing the Internet, this weeks news that Bing + Yahoo is now over 30% of searches should not go ignored.
The Bing Yahoo combo picked up over 6% while Google fell 3% in Search traffic. These are big numbers, but they still represent the “gross” numbers. We will be watching to see if we can get more industry specific statistics. It should be noted that on a very small scale we have seen Bing searches (Clicks) pick up in the home improvement area last month, but, far to little data to make a definitive statement.
What to do? Check your Bing SEO rankings. Make sure you read information (specific) on Bing optimization. Make sure you use the Bing web master tools, and have your local company listed in Bings local program.
If you are using Google exclusively for pay per click it may be time to divide the budget and spend 30% with Bing- Yahoo. Or add 30% and use them.
We will follow up with a few specific tips on SEO on Bing for Denver and Colorado Businesses over the next few weeks.
