Bing is hotlinking my full sized images and is ignoring both hotlink protection and frame busting at the same time. My traffic from Bing images has dwindled to near nothing despite good rank yet I am serving more images for Bing than ever, it's time to pull the bing image plug so to speak.
Bing doesn't have a separate image bot (that I am aware of) to block so how would I best go about blocking images entirely for BING ONLY. I am thinking that simply denying access to /images/ for bing via robots.txt will work best but before I do is there a better way? Will Bing ignore my robots.txt too?
