Website not showing up in local bing
I have a .net.au website that IS showing up in Bing, however not very well.
When I search with the option "Show all", the website is found (although ranks very poorly).
However, when I click "Pages in Australia" the website does not show up AT ALL, even if I type the entire URL in the search.
I would have expected the ranking to be better in the limited search, however it isn't even there.
If anyone could share any possible reasons for this problem I would greatly appreciate it.

I think it is not properly optimized. Have you submitted xml site-map in bing webmaster tool?

Hi Jacob_Thompson and thanks for your response.
Yes, a sitemap is submitted.
In fact, there are 2:
/sitemap.xml and /sitemap.xml.gz
both with 186 URLs submitted.

Could having 2 sitemaps affect the result?

all fixed, turns out i needed this tag:
<meta http-equiv="content-language" content="en-au">
