I'm baffled by the difference in results for my (fairly new) website between Bing and Google. On Bing, my website comes up #1 no problem when I search for my name (simply First and Last name). But on Google my author website is nowhere in sight unless I include my middle initial. Why is there such a big difference? My site is verified with both search engines. Does it just take Google longer to crawl new sites?

Google's index is roughly a bajillion (hyperbole!) times bigger than Bings. It will truncate a lot of it's results so as to remain relevant, and new sites without so-called "domain authority" will get lost in the crowd. As in pushed to the very end of it.

Google's index--the most extensive in the world, by far
Ranking on Bing is therefore easy, and some would say largely irrelevant, since their market share is so low.

With a more than 90 percent market share in 2019, Google claims the top spot with ease.
SEO specialists focus on Google for a reason.

Thanks for the responses. I checked this morning and found my site is #1 on Bing and Yahoo and #7 on Google. Oddly, Google does not bring up the home page but the "about" page. I'm surprised by the difference, although after asking about I've come across plenty of experience online with people getting frustrated about variations in their rankings on the different search engines.
