    Do you just focus on Google and then let Bing do its own thing?

    I just wonder whether there is anything SEO wise I should be doing for other search engines. Or is everything we do for Google enough for Bing?

    Well if you want to Rank in both then yes what you do for Google should be fine for Bing and Bing will follow suit eventually. BUT, you can game the Bing SEs by adding tons of backlinks. But keep in mind if the backlinks are really bad/black hat and you get penalized in G, Bing will follow suit as well most of the time.

    Both Google and Bing have their own algorithms and so a web page result will differ in the search results on both Google and Bing with placements in the search engine results page (SERPS) being either higher or lower than that of the other.

    That being said both search engines still aim to provide the best results to the user and although Bing may rank sites using different criteria than that of Google the same general rules apply across the board: Provide high quality original and relevant content and build high quality back links.

    If you focus on getting high quality contextual links from blogs, you will find they work very well for both Google and Bing. Bing actually credits social signals for ranking too. So get the page Tweeted and Shared on Facebook. If you want to rank in Google over the long run, then skip the spam. Bing is much more forgiving with spam than Google is in my experience.

    And yes, for SEO, I typically forget about Bing. More times than not, if I am using contextual blog links, Bing will end up ranking my page number one before Google does. You still won't get much traffic from Bing though, at least not usually.

    Focus on bing. Bing is highly undervalued by people. Bing for me as an internet marketer has 40% conversion rate.

    I will usually focus on Google since the majority of users are there currently and usually if I do well on Google in terms of ranking, I will be doing well on Yahoo/Bing too. Still, whether which SE gives the best result, only you can decide. You can try paying for Bing Ads and Google Ads to see which one converts well for you.

    I totally forgot Bing. I've started a site in this month and try to build link in Google only. What should we do with Bing? DOes provide Search console enough?

    Me too, I don't focus on Bing, just only on Google, however maybe I will try Bing in the future if I have good ranking in Google first.

    These things will usually go hand in hand. Although we don't focus on Bing as a secondary platform as we're a Google Partner we still find that, from an SEO perspective, what we do for Google often winds up being mirrored on Bing as well.
