|Bing and site: operator|
3 times as many pages as exist
| 12:31 am on Dec 11, 2009 (gmt 0)|
Is there some trick to using the site: operator on Bing?
When I do a site:mysite.tld it returns at least 3 times as many pages as my site has.
I'm probably around 3,100 hundred pages and the site: search returns over 11,000 (but that nuber changes for some reason).
I do have the non www redirected to the www. version of the site.

No one else has experienced this, has any insights on it?

Did I explain this so poorly no one understands my question?
Is the thread just invisible?

use an http response header checker to check to see if your 404 page really IS giving a 404 response. Otherwise, Urls with tracking strings can cause this problem.
If your site has a search function, then this might also cause this effect.... sort of a honeypot for spiders... where infinite URLs are possible, for search results.
Sorry... tried to answer this days ago... but went under a tunnel on the train.

Thanks, here's a bit mmore info.
This is a dedicated server. The only other sites on the server are a couple very small sites of mine.
I have no site search on the site.
All pages are static and have only one url
I just ran a header check and got this response:
|HTTP Status Code: HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found |
