Websites not indexed in MSN/Live RRS feed

  • Hi Alan,

     

    There are various reasons why sites don't get indexed. That aside, I submitted your sites to the index. Hopefully you will see a change in a week or so.

  • Hi, Alan.

     

    From my reading of a number of threads in this forum, I get the impression that the Live Search bot and the related processes are very spotty - prone to errors of omission and very slow at picking things up.

     

    I have asked in another thread what our expectations should be regarding the time it takes to get indexed, but there has been no answer from the Live Search team.

     

    I submitted a website for crawling on September 10, and it was crawled for the first time on October 10, but that crawl did not result in pages being added to the index.  I think this one was crawled within a month because the website had been there for a number of months before my submission and was already on the "crawl list" or whatever it is that guies the bot.

     

    I submitted three websites on August 15 and none of them has been crawled, let alone indexed.
