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.

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.
