Beyond Google: Link Building for Bing and Other Search Engines

Table of Contents

Google might be at the top, but there are other search engines to focus on if you want to boost your

site’s visibility. Exploring Bing and others can uncover hidden traffic opportunities and ensure your site

stands out everywhere. Here’s a straightforward plan to master link building beyond just Google.

1. Get to Know Bing

Bing looks a lot like Google but works differently under the hood. It likes precise keywords, domain names with key phrases, and quick page load times, and it prefers websites that have been around longer.

To win on Bing, make your content valuable, ensure your site runs smoothly, and provide a great user experience.

2. Use Niche Directories

Look at niche directories; they’re still valuable. Find well-respected directories specific to your industry and add your website link. This can help you connect more meaningfully, improving your site’s link quality.

3. Engage on Social Media

Though social media doesn’t directly affect rankings, Bing pays attention to social signals like shares, likes, and comments. Be active and engaging on social media to boost your visibility.

4. Guest Blogging

Guest blogging works differently with Bing than with Google. Writing valuable content for other sites can help improve how search engines see your site. Choose platforms that matter to your field, make a good pitch, and offer something valuable to their readers.

5. Connect with Influencers

Knowing the right people can help a lot. Build relationships with influencers in your industry.

Engage with them and their audience, share valuable insights, and when the time’s right, a link from them can significantly boost your visibility across search engines.
