Bing Ireland Search Question

Discussion in 'Bing SEO (Microsoft)' started by ADVERTISINGGUERRILLA, Jun 7, 2010.

  1. Hi, our business website is for Irish street advertising. But it will not show in the 'Ireland only' bing search despite good rankings in the general listing for our keywords.

    How can I get the site included in the Irish listings?




    Woops, should have posted this in the SEO forum, could a mod move it for me please. Much love.

    Is the site a .com or a .ie?

    If it is a .com, where is it hosted?
     
  3. .com and France. Can we get round this???

    Yes and no
    Yes in that you can put plenty of text on the site that indicates it's targetting Ireland
    No if Bing is using geotargetting based on the site's location ie. its hosting - I've no idea if they do or not
     
  5. Hmm, I bet they are geotargetting.

    Does that mean we would have to switch to an Irish server?

    Thanks Blacknight.

    Have you logged into Bing Webmaster tools and changed the location?

    I believe bing supports these tags/uses them as hints in determining your location.

    <meta http-equiv="content-language" content="en-gb" />

    <meta name="country" content="gb/uk" />
