I've launched a number of sites recently (8-12 weeks) that are getting tons of traffic from google search at an increasing rate (both image and web), but they are getting absolutely nothing from bing or yahoo. what gives? what are some tricks to get yahoo and bing to send some search traffic?

Do you appear in their results? –  SLaks Mar 1 '11 at 12:23

FYI, Yahoo search is now powered by Bing. –  John Conde Mar 1 '11 at 14:03
    
My sites appear in search results and in 'webmaster' tools for bing and yahoo. My sites are all targeted at engineers in manufacturing, but we for sure get a lot of "regular" people as well.. assuming ad click topics are a reasonable measure (which they may not be). –  T.

Check out stackoverflow.com traffic sources in 2010 less than 1% of traffic comes from Bing.

Is the problem Bing/Yahoo not ranking your site well, or no-one using Bing/Yahoo?
