    Hi Guys,

    Every single one of the 30x domains sitemap.xml's in my Bing Webmaster account are listed as 'pending'. Some have been this way for over 10 months. They are telling me there are 'errors'. The error just says 'empty'. I have the very same sitemaps indexed by G and they work perfectly. I have added the sitemap to my robots.txt on each site, and deleted and resubmitted them but nothing seems to work. Any thoughts on how I might fix this....?

    Manually create a new sitemap from sitemap generators online and submit it and check whether that one works.
    Also make sure you don't block anything in htaccess.

    Mostly bing takes more time to crawl from big G.

    I've noticed that a lot of people are having trouble with their sitemaps in bing. I wouldn't worry about it too much until they fix their system. Not to many people are able to get their sitemaps in right now.
