My site is top of the listing for "my town my business" search. However I'm not in the local businesses section. Anyone know how I get in this - is there a system in place like Google has?

Same as live search, just change live.com to bing.com...

Here is the new URL [ssl.bing.com...]

Ah thanks. Sadly that only seems to be for the US and I'm in the UK.

Finally found the page - in case anyone else ids searching for it it's [ssl.bing.com...]

edit - oops, that just sends you to the page rusty mentioned which is US only.

US only, that's not very intuitive, especially considering Gov Schwarzenegger is closing down everything in the state this week. Won't be much of a local left here soon, hehe.

I too would like to know were the UK results come from or how to add my site to the listings

During submission process, it still asks for Windows Live ID .. is there some identity crisis? What good is Windows Live without live.com alive any more ;)

Hmm yes I realise, when searching bing.com you get local listing. If you click on the UK tab, you don't get local listings! Which of course is somewhat back to front!
Interesting question as to where they got the listings from!

Not when I used it, it didn't (UK form).

Windows Live still exists. It's just the search side that's called Bing; and, Bing only does search.

How big a player is Bing these days? How much traffic do they get?

Not sure how big they are, but would still be interested in a UK local listing!

[ssl.bing.com...] doesn't support Chrome, only firefox and IE. Pathetic. Manageable, but still pathetic.

Lots of MS services (such as AdCenter) don't support Chrome. Strange coincidence, isn't it?

Nor Opera, I might add.

I miss Opera's User-agent faking feature where you could actually edit the real user agent, and not something detectable like 'Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; U; en; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061208 Firefox/2.0.0 Opera 9.63 '

found my own answer, you use the "Mask as [browser]" User Agent.
