My site has just been indexed in Bing News. And I like it.

Unlike Google News with an approval process, we didn't apply to them. And they're indexing our news site as well as blog (our blog hasn't been able to get into Google News yet).

I just noticed an uptick in retweets of some of our pages, and I couldn't figure out where they are coming from. I got the clue when a Google alert showed a site publishing feeds from Bing News with my content included

Unlike Google News, though, Bing News seem pretty selective with what they put on their News site. Much more selective than Google News.

And sometimes delayed. A 2-day old content was just put up in Bing News 2 hours ago. I'm not complaining - just surprised to see a rush of retweets on the post.

Anyone else has any experience?
