more profitable to rank in bing?

Considering the difference in traffic for the #1 spot and the say #3 spot (and everything below) is so extreme, would it make sense to try to rank #1 in bing and compete with nobody as opposed to trying to rank #1 in Google and competing with everybody?

Of course a ranking in bing probably comes down to similar factors (links...), but I bet for some websites moving from #3 to #1 in bing b/c of actively optimizing for it (on-page factors, etc.) could increase traffic (and hopefully sales) by more than trying to get to the #1 spot in Google that everybody has their eyes on.

PS: I used to think that way, about yahoo no idea if it'd still be a good idea for bing if it continues to receive that kind of attention

Re: more profitable to rank in bing?

Now sites listed top postion in bing are toss-up. May be they get few visitors but solid customers. Things would be changing as Bing search users increases and SEO's get to it

Best,

With the Yahoo-Bing Alliance this is going to change.
