    This question might sound pretty amature-ish, but why the hell isn't Bing/Yahoo indexing most of my site? Since the EMD update hit an important site of mine, I decided to show Bing/Yahoo some more love. This site has around 70 pages (All indexed on G), but only about 20 pages are indexed in Bing and Yahoo. I also have the same problem with a few other sites.

    I submit the sitemap, and the robots.txt is fine. I'd appreciate if anyone experienced with Bing/Yahoo can even skype me for some quick assistance with this. Good day!

    I wouldn't worry about it. Bing is much slower than Google at indexing stuff. Assuming you've built links to it, the site will definitely eventually get indexed by Bing, just not at the really fast speed that Google does indexing.

    They seem to be verrrrrry slow. I have a site with 400 pages. All 400 on google. About 60 on Bing. But they eventually index the pages. Not sure if there is a way to light a fire under them to speed it up...my guess would be no, and you just have to play the waiting game.

    Submit a sitemap to bing webmaster for god's sake.

    I've never seen Bing not index URLs in a sitemap that's linked up.

    I have submit a sitemap. The pages that aren't being indexed were created weeks ago lol Google indexes them within minutes. Weird.
