Hi,

I'm having a very hit and miss experience with Bing. It either immediately indexes my articles on page one or it displays this message when I request indexing:


URL cannot appear on Bing

The inspected URL is known to Bing but has some issues which are preventing indexation. We recommend you follow Bing Webmaster Guidelines to increase your chances of indexation.



I have read the guidelines and I can't spot the issue. Google has indexed most of the older articles that Bing says has issues.

I also can't see what I do differently in the articles Bing loves and the ones it rejects. Would anyone here with experience in this matter be willing to take a look at the problematic articles and see if you can spot something?

I tried messaging Bing webmaster and haven't received a reply.

Yes, the articles are in the sitemap. I resubmitted it again to be sure. I do the manual URL submission each time I publish an article. I am a bit nervous to add an additional plugin because I already have 8.

Hi Yvonne, I finally received a response from Bing and it looks like where I am getting a 'can't index due to the guidelines violation' message, actually Bing is still considering indexing me so it should say 'not indexed yet'. A bit strange but as long as they index eventually I'm ok with it :)

When it comes to Bing or other indexing tools, I believe have to be patient.

Yes, I think you are right. I am naturally impatient so need to work on this.
