There are 2 big search engine optimisation differences: Bing and Yahoo still use the keyword meta tag while Google doesn't. Bing and Yahoo focus more on link popularity than Google. Links are becoming less and less important to the search giant because they can be artificial and probably most of them are. Number one ranking factors for Google are now content, social "votes" and authorship.

If you are in the US, something like 80% of American searches use Google so that’s what you should mainly concentrate on. Most of the same techniques that work with Google will work with Bing as well (the algorithms may be different, but they aren’t THAT different), and since Google is the most commonly used search engine, just go with your existing practices and you should be fine.

SEO for Bing – Google and Bing Indexing Differences

"Bing and Yahoo are now (mostly) sharing their search functions and further integration will occur over the next several months. This combination has resulted in a 25% market share of the Search landscape for Bing/Yahoo! If you have so far ignored the growing importance of Bing, now is the time to start looking at how to optimize your website for Bing search results. This post will take a look at how indexing occurs with Bing.

Google is clearly the leader in the Search space and a very mature and sophisticated search engine. They do a remarkable job of indexing a wide variety of content. Bing, on the other hand, is still in its infancy and has yet to develop some of the rich indexing capabilities that exist with Google. Some of the more compelling differences between how Google indexes websites verses how the Bing crawler operates include Canonical Requirements, Page Size , 301 & 302 Redirects, Meta Refreshes and Backlink Requirements."
