I wonder about two things:

- the home page of one of my sites has been picked by Bing with the variable that I used in Google AdWords. Instead of www.example.com it uses www.example.com/?var=adwords
Besides 301, is there another way to let Bing know about this? Contact them? I don't see anything inside Bing webmaster tools, except to block URL.

- Index Explorer is empty even with Bing having at least full month of data. It shows keywords and traffic, and graph for indexed pages, but the Explorer is empty and says "No data available"
When should data appear?

Did you ever find a solution to this issue? I'm also having Adwords URLs being indexed in Bing (as my homepage, no less).

I too only see graphs and don't see where to manage the actual pages being indexed.
