  1. Is your site listed on Baidu(most used search engine in China), Yandex(most used search engine in Russia) and Yahoo (most used search engine in Japan)?

    My site Promotion Era is listed in all of them.
  2. I'm ranked about the same in Baidu and Yahoo as I am in google, however Yandex, I am ranked severely higher than google. I'm on the first page for the biggest key word (Which I'm struggling to change in google). I'm loving Yandex XD. Also, I didn't know Yahoo was used most in Japan. You learn something new every day :)
  3. I am one of those guys that love numbers :)

    Baidu was going to conquer Yahoo in Japan, but they gave up to early. Now Google is using his power to advertise everywhere in Japan, they are already hating it haha.
  4. Honestly, I'd rather popular English search engines to index my site, over non-english users. As for Yahoo - it's actually powered by Bing, so if you're indexed in Bing you're indexed in Yahoo.
  5. Theoretically, they are working together but it doesn't mean that they are the same. Their ranking is completely different, and the indexing is different too. If you don't submit it to Bing or Yahoo, they have to find your site by a backlink but don't they don't exchange URLs together most of the times.

    Also there is a difference between ranking higher in a search engine and being listed. Let's say one of your user clicked your backlink and enjoyed your site. Later, he wanted to check back but don't remember your TLD, he types it on Baidu and can't find it too. Of course he is not going to check it on Google because China calls it a porn search engine. That means you lost 1member :(
  6. They aren't working together, in July 29, 2009 Microsoft and Yahoo said that Bing would power Yahoo search, meaning if you're indexed in Bing, you're indexed in Yahoo, yes your SERPs may vary from Bing to Yahoo but that's the same with Google and Google and filter bubbleing.

    Yes, that's Search Engine Results Page, I never said there wasn't or anything about SERPs, your topic was asking about being listed (which you seem to confuse with being indexed).

    I'd be quite interested to know why they use Baidu over something like DuckDuckGo or Google, or if they were Chinese, why they would be using an English site.
  7. We talk a lot :p
    By working together, I meant the search engine. You already said in what they work together: "meaning if you're indexed in Bing, you're indexed in Yahoo" but if you don't submit, they act on their own by backlinks.

    No, I gave you an example of what I mean which is the next quote. I didn't said you are misunderstanding it, but you misunderstand the post.

    I am a Portuguese, why shouldn't I use an English site? China uses Baidu, Russia uses Yandex, that's how it is.

    Back to your second quote "Honestly, I'd rather popular English search engines to index my site, over non-english users" you should index your site in other search engines like Baidu and Yandex, but rank higher in English search engines.
  8. I am on all of them except Yandex, but I just submitted my site to it. Despite these countries being dominated by languages other than English, many in all of them still speak English as a second language so I can see why ranking high on their search engines could be beneficial.
  9. You guys say "submit" like you have to actually enter a site and submit it. I might be thinking of search engines as working totally different than they are, but I thought you just optimize your site as best as possible and then just hope it gets on the page. Is there a faster way of getting that done?
  10. I know back around 2009-2010ish google had a 'submit your site' button on their page. After submitting it a bot went over and checked out your page. I'm unsure if they do that, but I'm sure smaller Search Engines probably still do this :)
  11. It's listed on Yahoo, though I haven't ever gone to Baidu and Yandex, they index my site a ton though so I am assuming I am on there somewhere. xD
