This is Vincent from Bing Webmaster Tools.
This was a Bingbot checking for an XML sitemap generated by the Bing Sitemap Plugin (Beta) for IIS and Apache - see the following for more details:

I have been emailing with Bing support for several weeks now and as of today, they started to offer limited support for SNI.
I made clear to them that the issue was 100% sure in their lack of SNI support by moving one of my websites to a dedicated IPv4 and turning off SNI for that address. After that, the sitemap got succesfully verified by Bing. All other ...
The problem in this particular case is that whilst the "auto-correction" looks wrong to you, for most people on the planet it's probably correct.
But either way, I really don't think there is much you can do about it unfortunately. What you are asking for is a potential tweak in their search algorithm.
Google's default site search does a lot more than ...
I don't think people should ban bing bot.
Bing has an equivalent Bing Webmaster tools at http://www.bing.com/toolbox/webmaster/
where they also have 'Crawl Settings' where you can adjust the crawl rate as seen in this video:
Googlebot is just as notorious in excessive ...
I am taking this as your question- repeated phrases or different phrases with the same meaning.
I am going to take a side-trip, but bare with me- I am sure we will arrive at the right place. The reason is, I am not sure you understand the basics of SEO well enough. So please humor me. It will make sense in the end.
When you talk about SEO, you really are ...
This post is 4 years old, hope the status in not Pending anymore. But this helped me.
After 14 days of pending status, I found this link, to PING bing with your sitemap. It's was a kind of awake call for my sitemap. Few hours later, my site was indexed.
Upload your sitemap (but you already did hence the pending status)
Typ in your browser: http://www.bing....
Bing will follow the redirect no problem so there's nothing you should alter if its a 301 redirect. Your find with Bing it takes many weeks and months to get into their indexed compared to Google. Also bing is much more fussy on indexing pages so ensure the page is uniqne and offers good content.
Watching Bing Indexing is Like Watching Paint Dry
I have ...
Simply put it takes research and testing. Start by looking at the sites that rank in Bing but don't in Google. Look for similarities and differences. Then based on the data you collect come up with a hypothesis and design tests, they could be as simple as I'm going to try this on my current site and see if it ranks better in Bing or more complex with new ...
The only bad thing about it is that naming it "Home" is a wasted opportunity for a good keyword. And as it's so common you're in greater competition (like the old joke with googling for "here" which resulted for years in #1 for Adobe Reader as everyone linked "to open this document you need the ... which you can download here), hm, but noone would search for ...
Although I agree with w3d's answer, there might be something that you'd want to try.
I had a quick look at this, and although the unfortunate name/correction it appears that the site doesn't rank #1 for Tranin Communications (in quotes), assuming the site is traningrants.com, and the first page to rank is the about page.
A quick look to some backlink ...
msnbot is quite prolific when it comes to spidering servers and if you have a lot of pages to index it can quite easily cripple your server. As traffic from MSN is considerably less than what Google can give it's quite common just to deny the msnbot via .htaccess, iptables or robots.txt. With Googlebot you can limit the speed quite easily in http://google....
Your robots.txt file does not appear to conform to the robots.txt specification (you must specify the user agent before the directives and I do not believe that Noindex is a valid directive).
Consider the following updates:
I can't really speak for Yahoo but in case of Bing, submit request about "Outdated cache removal"
Read more about this here:
Please note, that all search engines eventually crawl over your web pages again. It's just a matter of time.
Caching is done on the search engine's servers, so there isn't much you can do about it.
it is outside your direct control since you are at the mercy of specific search engines re-indexing you.
You can (and should) sign up for Bing and Google webmaster tools (Yahoo is part of Bing's tools). This will give you an opportunity to let them know you've updated ...
You really don't need to. Crawlers will find you on their own. However, if you would like to help that process a bit then include your domains in Google Webmaster Tools and Bing Webmaster Tools. Both will provide you with a number of "helpful" stats on your site as well.
Also, make sure that you have an XML sitemap on your site. It will assist the crawlers ...
At the highest level, you should never "expect" anything, given there's no guarantee that microdata will even be used if discovered.
Specific to your question, though, this is not one of the documented suported types, so barring some other specialized search engine, at the moment Google doesn't appear to even be looking for this flavor of microdata, much ...
I realize that this is an old post but after researching this I came upon an article explaining the purpose of this user agent.
In this article they explain that this is a user agent string used to fetch images in real time when being accessed through the Bing app. Meaning as you scroll through pictures within this app you may end up clicking on one to ...
Its probably because you have a link to that page.
More than likely you have a ../../cadpac/cadpac_jis.shtml link is a url that is on your site.
Easiest way to handle this is just put it in your robots.txt file as a page not to index / carwl.
No you shouldn't concern yourself, it makes perfect user sense.
I would also put the photo numbers in the alt tags, something like alt="Photo #2 of bmw 328 manual 2008 black 18 inch rims"
I wouldn't worry about "cloaking" on files that are meant only for the consumption of robots. Showing a 403 Forbidden status when the user-agent isn't Googlebot should be fine on a sitemap file. Google cares about cloaking when users see different results than Googlebot. In this case, Google is never going to refer users to the sitemap at all.
I often ...
Google and Bing do not have a function such as Yandex to tell them what is the original source of the content. Google will generally go on the first version that was indexed and Bing is possibly the same.
Google can get it wrong though, so if you see sites out ranking yours with your content, you can file a DMCA take down request: Digital Millennium ...
Firstly on yahoo if I use site:https://www.example.com/ using https Yahoo declares 121 results. But site:http://www.example.com/ or site:example.com declares 1300 results. Why would this be?
Different search engines will index your pages differently and the site: tool across these different search engines could also work differently. You wouldn't ...
From my experience, BingBot does follow links despite them having a nofollow attribute. I can see it currently in our logs: thousands of requests per day for pages that are linked using nofollow hyperlinks. I did check the IPs as well as user-agent and they seem to be legit requests from bingbot.
Whether or not Bing then uses this for anything (indexing, ...
I think you should handle this issue differently. You want google to understand it's an alternate page version that is for different screen sizes. He will make sure a desktop user will be directed to the right place (as well as mobile users).
I would recommend the following:
In all /mobile/ pages use:
<link rel="canonical" href="/non-mobile-url"/&...
Each bot requires its own line.
Your robots.txt should look like this
Additional its always best to use Noindex and ...
It does sound like some sort of scheme. The problems with such practices are discussed in this thread about buying back links.
If these sites are dead, there may not be anything to worry about, but if you wish to be sure you could use link disavowal tools in Google and Bing WMT to indicate that you don't wish to be associated with them.
Here are instructions on how to tell Bing you have moved site: Bing Site Move tool
The Site Move tool, located under Diagnostics & Tools can be used to tell Bing that you have moved and permanently redirected your site (or a section of your site) to a new location. Although permanently redirecting your URLs using 301 redirects is ...
My Basic Bing Experiences as follows:
Have you signed up with Bing's webmaster tools?
Have you verified ownership and submitted a sitemap to Bing?
Has the sitemap been scanned and are the number of pages in it being reported?
Till you do the above, it's kind of pointless waiting for anything to happen and after you do it, its pointless expecting ...
Use PHP plus Regex. Forget the Robots.txt. Several bad bots don't respect it...
And you tell for Bing: The door is closed for you!
