Site still not being indexed, why? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I first submitted http://www.thecountryinn.co.uk on the 28 August 2008, it was verified using LiveSearchSiteAuth.xml and the sitemap was submitted at the same time. Now 2 months on and the site is still not being indexed by Live Search (perhaps it should be called Dead Search). The site was submitted with Google & Yahoo at the same time and I had no problem with it being indexed in these search engines.

     

    I run daily statistics for this site and the reports tells me the MSNBot crawled the site and it has done since the site was submitted. What I don't understand is, if the site is being crawled by MSNBot why am I unable to find the site in Live Search.

     

    Why is Live Search associated with Google & Yahoo as a major player in search engines when it clearly is not. I have noticed that if Brett Yount gets hold of these threads that the associated sites seem to get indexed, but why are they not indexed automatically?

  • Hi Alan,

     

    the issues tend to very from site to site, but I've had good luck getting the sites indexed. I have submitted several URLs for you too. If you don't see anything in 10 days, let me know and I will dig deeper.

     

    Thanks!

  • My site is no longer in MSN live search, although the company and site have been up for 10 years. Any idea why? http://www.hotdigtal.net
