I just wanted to provide feedback on an indexing issue we've seen with MSN/Bing. Our site is a large article publishing website with several thousand articles published each month. We have multiple XML sitemaps. Our site is well indexed in Google (1.78 million pages indexed), with similar success in Yahoo (4.7 million pages indexed). However in Bing, we're only seeing a small percentage of our website being indexed (114,000 pages indexed).
What can we do to improve the indexing of our website?
As an example, Googlebot visits our site several hundred times in a given day. Bing however does not have the same crawling frequency on our site.
this is a good question Marc
anyone know this?

don't bother with bing, is crap.
I've been waiting nearly a year for BING????
They have emailed crap responses like;
I ask - where is Bing? It has not indexed by site.
I get answers from Bing Like "bing is everywhere"
don't bother with bing
I have the same problem, only 10% of my site has been indexed by Bing, compare to Yahoo and Google with 70%-90% of my site.
A guy from Bing sugegst me to check my robots.txt file and submit the sitemap to MSN Webmaster Tool, but the % of indexed page remain the same...
Bing has a smaller index capacity than Google and Yahoo. To help get a greater percentage of your pages indexed, point some quality backlinks to every page.
