    Bizarre bing issue O_o


    I'm seeing some weird stuff with bing...so, site is not indexed in bing.

    What I check that cleared as being not the issue
    >robots.txt is fine
    >no meta robots.txt on site
    >markup is standard wordpress fare

    The plot thickens
    >Site is being crawled by Bing
    >Bing Webmaster Central shows that the site does have pages indexed
    >When I search in Bing for websitename.com, websitename, website name, site:websitename.com, site:websitename.com inurl:robots ...nothing...
    >backlink profile is not very spammy, very natural, no anchor text rich links

    What I did find:
    >site has three sitemaps...I don't think this is the issue but I'm getting this cleaned up anyway
    >verifying site in webmaster central..don't think this is the issue either but getting this done too...

    curious to hear what some theories are....and wondering if I missed something in my sleuthing...


    thank yoouuuu
