    Hi guys,

    I've been having a strange issue here, I thought I knew how to build a search engine friendly website but I seem to be having some problems, my site is 4 months old and has 314 pages indexed in Google which is all of them, yahoo for some reason just has the index page and bing has the index page and one other product page.

    I've never had this issue before and yahoo and bing usually rank higher than Google for me but for some reason it just hasn't happened, the site has some backlinks and they are showing up in yahoo but still no joy, I had thought perhaps because the site is new it would just take a while but to be honest my sites have always been indexed in yahoo and bing even without backlinks.

    Does anyone have any suggestions here, I've been trying to figure this out for a few months now but I decided today I should seek advice.

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Hows your robots.txt file look? Perhaps there is a different type of algorithm their spiders use?

    My robots looks like this:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow:
    Disallow: /cgi-bin/
    Sitemap: hxxp://www(DOT)myurl(DOT)com/site-map(DOT)html
    I have just added this in yesterday, used a generator for it because after my Google searches the robots issue seemed to be coming up alot so I thought id test it.

    Y! and Bing are a lot less forgiving of shitty backlinks. Indexing wise, I do much better with them with some better quality links.
