  • the page load time is fairly slow and while we will crawl 302s, you will not get the same benifit as using a 301. We do not index 302 redirected pages, so this is probably the main issue for not indexing your home page.

  • I'm not from Bing, but trying your home page and it's taking ages to download. I'd check your server reports to ensure that Bing is gathering full page info.

  • thanks bev!

  • Your biggest issue is that you are using a 302 redirect from http://kerala.travel to http://www.kerala.travel.  Bing just won't follow a 302 so make sure you are using 301 redirects for canonicalization.

    cheers,

    Bing is very slow in indexing new sites. It can take several months for new sites to get indexed in Bing.

  • Bing is a slow crawler, indexing can take 3 months+.  Whilst your waiting work on getting some quality backlinks to the site.

  • Thanks for clarifying that Brett. 

  • Make sure your content is viewable by MSNBot. Check on the following:
    • If you must use images for your main navigation, ensure there are text navigation links for the bot to crawl
    • Do not embed access to content you want indexed within <script> </script> tags
    • Make sure each page has unique <title> and <meta> description tags
    • If possible, avoid frames and <meta> tag refresh
    • If your site uses session IDs or cookies, make sure they are not needed for crawling
    • Use friendly URLs whenever possible

  • See the guidelines I gave on the following thread on how to set up a 301 redirect: http://www.bing.com/community/forums/t/652452.aspx

  • thankyou! my site is indexed.
