"Bing" robot not recognized as robot

The signature of Microsofts (Bing) robot (“msnbot”) ist not included in the “aRobots” array in “config.inc.php”, hence it is not recognized as being a robot.

Solution: include it!

$this->aRobots = array(
‘googlebot’,
‘msnbot’,
‘ultraseek’,
‘crawl’,
‘spider’,
‘fireball’,
‘robot’,
‘spider’,
‘robot’,
‘slurp’,
‘fast’,
‘altavista’,
‘teoma’,
);

Thx Avanger,

have you more experience with MS Bing? I am not satisfied with my Bing results at all. Many Items of my shop are missing and bing users will not find them.

Has Bing anything equal to googles sitemap.xml?

Yes and no…

Google, Yahoo and Microsoft have agreed on interpreting the following syntax in the “[B]robots.txt[/B]”-file:

[B]Sitemap: http://www.mysite.com/sitemap.xml[/B]

So, if you’ve got a sitemap, you can present it also to Microsoft- and YAHOO-robots using such an entry in “[B]robots.txt[/B]”.

Hi,

avenger, could you be so nice to open up a bug report for it?

Thanks
