I registered as a site master with Bing.com, verified my site and submitted a site map almost a week ago. But still it shows me that the last crawled date is 'N/A', indexed pages are 'N/A' and domain score is 'N/A.' There are no errors or 'crawl issues.' What can I do? Am I just being impatient?

It takes about two weeks if www.yourwebsite.com/robots.txt file is placed correctly in root directory and set up properly. Bing is very sensitive about robots.txt and verification <meta name="msvalidate.01" content="0D3E8........1048FE...." /> tag. Make sure you copy exactly your verification tag to Notepad and paste it without any changes to your home page "header" where you see all other <meta> tags.

You can just upload a file to your server instead of the meta tag for Bing. Much easier IMO.

Never went looking for Bing. Found me all by itself... and hits relentlessly several times a day, day after day, week after week (etc...)

It a new site, be patient. Bing is scaling UP these days. You will be found. And indexed.
