Image SEO Expert Knocks On Bing Image Search

A WebmasterWorld thread has Zeus, someone well known in the SEO forum space as tracking the image search engines, as not speaking positively about Bing Image Search.

The thread talks how Bing is slower than Google to index new content. Which is often the case, simply cause Google is much faster than most search engines. But Zeus breaks it out to say that their image search is even more disappointing.

Zeus said that typically he sees at most 10% of his pages or images in Bing Image search, sometimes only 5% or less. He said:

Bing Image which in my case has 45 images listed of 22,000.

Now, Bing has made some very good strides and I believe many are rutting for them to gain some more share. Heck, I even think it would be a good idea and I am an Apple guy.

yeah, i'm too able to sing a song about how slow and imponderable the process of getting images listed within bing. hopefully this will change sometime soon... at least the new google image search should be a wee incentive for ms ;)

I spent quite a lot of time taking a look at traffic from image search engines to write a post about how t measure it. If this kind of traffic is very low from Yahoo, the one from Bing is minus 0, http://dynamical.biz/blog/seo-technical/traffic-from-images-search-engines-29.html In top of that Bing referral URL from imag search only include the keyword triggering the results, not, the URL of image and URL of page where the image is allocated http://blog.vkistudios.com/index.cfm/2010/6/8/SEO-Images-Search-Analytics-PHP-script

I like bing. I think the results are far less spammy that that of Google. Also for a client conversions are much higher

Seems like Bing has improved quite a bit since this post but Google is still way ahead!
