    Hello everyone,

    I am trying to get my site to be indexed by Bing. I have taken the following steps to get my site indexed but have had no progress doing so. If anyone could please provide me some insights or help on this issues I would greatly appreciate it.

    *The site ranks and is indexed on Google (ranks very well on Google)*

    - Added Bing Webmaster Tools to site (yes, it's verified)
    - Manually submitted the website to Bing (and all of the sub-directories)
    - Added sitemaps to Bing Webmaster Tools Account
    - Submitted URLs through URL Submission Tool

    The website is a title loan website.

    I am looking to rank for "title loan" queries.

    How long have you waited for the website to get indexed? Some websites take a few days to get indexed, some take a few weeks, and others may take a month. Also, how old is your domain and website? Newer websites and domains under a year old may take longer to rank than aged websites and domains.

    The site is almost 2 years old now. It was previously indexed in Bing but as of 3-4 months ago the site was completely removed (still ranks high on Google / never received any penalties).

    I probably manually submit the site, resubmit sitemaps, resubmit URLs, and fetch bing bot twice a week for the last 3 months with no progress.

    We also sent a note to Bing through FedEx, they simply responded that they would not index the site, but did not give a reason why ( I believe it has something to do with the website being a payday/title loan site, when I search for title loans in Bing it only has 26 RESULTS (compared to over 3 million a few months ago).

    Wow, that's quite the conundrum you have there! Bing must be doing something similar to what Clickbank is doing with investigation products (Clickbank is omitting investigation products from their marketplace and giving out mass refunds to people with a recurring subscription since those products are in a legal grey area). I'm assuming Bing had an algorithm update similar to Google's "Payday Loan" algorithm update from 2011. Basically, Bing is deindexing websites with the keyword "Payday loan" in it since "Payday loan" is often spam-prone keyword.

    I don't think there is much you could do at this juncture considering they've already rejected your website. I suppose you could always analyse what the few remaining websites that are yielded in Bing's SERPs are doing and try to copy that.

    Don't think you can do anything. At least your rankings are doing good in Google

    Bing is removing more sites from their index than Google, if it's removed from their index as u say u will have hard time getting it back there
