  8. Good post! Ignoring Bing is a big mistake.

    Getting multiple backlinks on Bing is very productive.
    Quantity of links is more important here than on Google.

    Don't forget long-tail keywords on Bing. It is easier to
    find good demand/low competition long-tail keywords on Bing
    because so many people neglect Bing.
