Search Engine Optimization has different technique for different search engines. For example: If you are trying to dominate on Google, you work on quality backlinks and that is not a case in Yahoo and Bing. Do you consider optimizing your website for all of the search engine or just Google considering Google drives the most of the web traffic. What are your views about it?
I cross-reference for some, but for the last 2 years I mostly go by Google. Throughout experience, I found that most of my clients and my client's client's use mostly Google, although lately I've seen increase in Bing. It is always useful to consider who the end-user of the website is; if it is mostly gamers or sudens on MAC, it would be one result, if it mostly business professionals within medical field using PCs, it would be something else to consider.
Absence of a result is a result, unless defined otherwise.
Every search engines give results based on their own algorithms then Google rankings are based on quality of content and back links. It is sufficient for making target for Google only but we can target other search engines for better results.
Absolutely right. Google want consider quality backlinks. but first is what's client want with u. Client target only for google traffic. Accept google term. And client want other search engines target other search engine terms. simple!!!
also every seo has his/her own point of views.. for example.. link wheel VS link push.. which is better.. Wordpress VS Blogger... but there is also a saying "It's easy to say that your're an SEO, but It's not that easy to say that you're an effective one"
