Site not ranking in Bing

Site not ranking in Bing

I have a site, and its not ranking on Bing & yahoo. However ranking at the 1st page on Google, on very competitive terms.

I have added site to the Bing & yahoo webmasters; submitted sitemap to them. Every posiible activity to it indexed in these 2 search engines.

Later i came to know that my home page was not indexed in these 2.

Please let me know how can i resolve this problem.

Thanks !

You can submit up to 50 URLs/domain every month and all of them will be included within 24 hours. After inclusion they might drop later if the contant and usage metrics is bad.

Well, I am unsure whats happening with Bing, I listed my site on bing almost 9 months back, but I hardly receive traffic from Bing. I dunno whether other sites are getting traffic from Bing or not.

I also have the same question... some sites rank well in G for competitive KWs and not in BING.

Where can I read about?

Zeus, what exactly was the robots txt issue? What did you do to resolve it? How long till you recovered? And was it a manual reincludion?

Hmmm, not appearing in Bing or Yahoo, but #1 in Google? Must be a thin content web spam site. ;^)

I will add my situation here also. I am gasping for air (organic traffic) and have recently been checking bing. To my amazement, many of my sites, when doing "site:" searches simply don't exist in Bing. This seems crazy to me. I've added those urls and am still waiting. In 2012 I would have assumed Bing was smart enough to include me on their own. Big mistake. Massive assumption and idiotic on my part. Sorting through this madness now and will report back as to when or if some of these sites get listed. Stupid me.
