Bing Webmaster Tools Sitemap Submission Problems


Best Answer chrishirst , 19 August 2014 - 05:35 PM

I'm not 'suggesting' anything, but how exactly do you think that search engines find URLs to index.???

 

 

 

It is a review website where the profile pages for external websites are mutually sharing backlinks

So nothing spectacularly useful or of any value to then.

 

 

a follow link

No such thing. There are links that MIGHT be 'followed' and links that probably won't be. Yours sound like they fall into the latter group.

I've been trying to submit my xml sitemap to Bing Webmaster Tools for the past couple years and had little success. My sitemap contains over 89k URLs, but for some reason the Pages Crawled is 23k and the Pages Indexed is about 400 pages?

I know my website is an HTTPS website. Do you think this could be the problem on why Bing will not crawl or Index more pages of my website?

Nope, it's more likely that your "site" isn't 'important' enough.

 

Do you have any links that DON'T point to your 'home' page?

We have many links that don't point to our home page and are pointing to the subpages of the website. It is a review website where the profile pages for external websites are mutually sharing backlinks (i.e. - the external website has a follow link pointing to its profile page on the review site).

 

Are you suggesting that Bing is only indexing pages that have links pointing to them?
