Saturday, March 28, 2009 11:22 AMOur bilingual web site www.cwazores.com (English and Italian) is has a good ranking in pretty much all search engines but Live Search.
No issues with robots.txt file and meta tags were found. Nonetheless, Live Search ranking appears to be extremely low or non-existent despite the keywords being extremely relevant, especially for the Italian section where competition on keywords is extremely low.
Sadly, it seems to me that Live Search has simply forgotten this web site. I own other web sites and only ran into this issue with www.cwazores.com, which is well more optimizes for search than the others.
Thanks in advance for your support.

Sunday, April 05, 2009 5:32 AMFrom experience I can tell you to give it time. You will find Live lags especially G by a few weeks to few months on the first search. Once it does pick up the site it will be pretty active. You'll find though even at that point it still lags the others by 2-3 weeks.
