hmm incredible now Bing makes the same mistake as google, they only show the image not the site anymore, dont they get it, that sites with images have a lot of bandwidth to pay for so they are dependent on ads like CPM ads, they need real impressions, not just hotlinking.

this is placed instead of your page : Displaying this page may force you to leave Bing Images. Opening the page in a new window will prevent this.
Open in a new window | Open here

On google a script worked to redirect to real page, but how to do this with bing any suggestions.

I wish I could figure out how to get Bing to stop indexing my images.

Seems there is no simple solution, like with Googlebot.

i have thought about all kind of solutions, but i cant figure it out, so i would recommend every one to block Bing image to save a lot of bandwidth.

How do you block Bing image


Block image directory in robots.txt? That's what I do on pictures I don't want to appear in images search.

To block image indexing in Google add this to your robts.txt file.
User-agent: Googlebot-Image
Disallow: /


To block image indexing in yahoo add this to your robts.txt file.
User-agent: Yahoo-MMCrawler
Disallow: /


To block image indexing in Picsearch add this to your robts.txt file.

User-agent: psbot
Disallow: /


To block image indexing in MSN/Bing add this to your robts.txt file.

User-agent: msnbot
Disallow: /*.jpg$
Disallow: /*.jpeg$
Disallow: /*.gif$
Disallow: /*.png$


To block access to your /images folder add this to robots.txt

This all assumes a well behaved crawler.
