    Dropped from Bing index


    I made a complaint to Bing about a website.

    The website has been hacked. The hacker created a directory on the hacked website, copied my homepage content and web design, then placed a few pages on the directory. Most of the links found on my homepage are changed to porn related links.

    I managed to catch two hacked pages, which I've reported to Bing. I reported the case to Bing because Yahoo and Bing are delivering traffics to the hacked pages.

    Suddenly, after about 24 hours, I found out that Bing and Yahoo no longer send any traffics to my website.

    When I checked Bing for my website, it shown "some results have been removed". I believe Bing has blocked the hacked pages, but accidentally penalised my website as well since my website link is found in the hacked pages.

    I wrote back to Bing but was told it needs one week to review the case with Product Group. Is there anyway this can be speed up? What should I do now? I lose 80% of my traffics as bing and Yahoo no longer sending any traffics.

    I would also like to know if Bing include my website into the Bing search in the future, will Yahoo search also show my website into their search results? Are they inter-related? Do I need to do anything to get back on Yahoo search?

    Will my website traffics performance similar to old days(before being accidentally penalised)?

    I am panic now, I am losing income with sleepless nights as this is my only website and my income, my life depends on it.

    Please help.

    Do you have a Bing Webmaster Tools account? What's in your messages there?

    Go sign up for Webmaster Tools and Verify your site. See if any messages pop up.

    ok, i just got my account after verification.

    found no pop up message or whatsoever, no malware found, nothing.

    but i did see in the "Index Explorer" this info:-
    Contains 2,615 folders/URLs
    Appeared in Search: 6,866
    Clicks from Search: 217
    Inbound link count: 1,491

    can this confirmed my website has been accidentally dropped or banned, since bing search shown "Some results have been removed"?
