Only homepage indexed after almost 6 weeks

This question is answered

Hi,

    I have submitted my website, www.kidandparent.in, to the Webmaster Console, using a sitemap.xml almost 6 weeks ago. It is a new website with unique content and Bing calculates about 14 Backlinks to it. However, just the homepage has been indexed so far (with help from Brett). G and Y have indexed almost 400 and 200 pages respectively. Any pointers on what I can do to get indexed by Bing?

 

Thanks,

Prathaban

  • Hi Prathaban,

    It is well known in the industry that MSNbot is fairly slow. I suggest reading our FAQs stickied at the top of the indexing forum to get some ideas of what to do.

  • Point a good number of quality backlinks to the inner pages. That will surely help.

  • Thanks for the quick turnaround, Brett. Appreciate it very much.

    I am going through the FAQ. We have got most of it covered except for the W3C validation. We are working on that now. Once I have that fixed, How much time more will I have to wait for my pages to be indexed? Or to put it another way, assuming the site meets all Bing criteria what is the estimated expected time for it to be indexed. Thanks for your help.

  • Hello, Brett,

    Thank you very much for submitting my introduction page www.dotopota.com. I can't reply at once.

    What am I to do to have other page indexed, espesially English pages in www.dopotopa.com/lang1 (I placed them as the second site)?  avkoln@live.ru

  • how can bing index faster if your index is changing on the daily bases?

    well is better to have many backlinks  the no backlinks it all :)

  • Optimise your webpages and then get related backlinks to your site.

    how can bing index faster if your index is changing on the daily bases?

    See here for information on this:

    you can tell the crawler how often your site changes in your XML sitemap, but it's unlikely you'll get crawled daily unless you have a good site rank.
