    Website not showing up in local bing


    Hi all,
    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.

    Thanks,
    mk1001.

    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?
