the website doesn't show up AT ALL when searched for on bing. no problem with google search from the same device.

 

also, longecity is glitchy on MS Edge browser.  looks like MS doesn't like longecity much.

That's truly bizarre! I put "longecity.org" in Bing and EVEN THEN, it doesn't link to the site, only its Facebook page. I've not been to Bing in literally YEARS!! Just proves why it $ucks so bad...

I also avoid Bing, but tried it in Firefox. Got a result. It was first in the list "longecity"   also "longecity NR" Google comes up with a lot of different longecity links. Bing sucks.

Must've been a glitch... unless its a particular region that has been blacklisted. I can find here on bing in Australia.

I have proactively registered us with Bing in response to the first post. I don't know whether that has already borne fruit or it was just a glitch anyway.

As I've been studying SEO, I've realized LC is getting docked 'points' for not censoring posts about illicit drug use, even with google. I think we'd get alot more traffic if we did start censoring and deleting anything related to anything on anyone's scheduled substance list... or at least the big ones, like those of the USA, UK, AU, and other predominantly English speaking places. Even if the discussions are academic in nature, there is always a risk that people who don't speak the best english or those who want to get our SEO rank penalized will post things that produce false positives and given the sheer size of the LC forum it would be extremely difficult to curate that much content. 

 

Or perhaps move all of those posts to a hidden forum viewable only to paid members and invisible to search engines as that would sell more memberships. The William O'Rights forum might also be a good candidate for hiding too.

 

Anyways, I know bing crawls LC, because it shows up as a user in the active users section along with google, alexa, yahoo, and others. So compliance is definitely our problem, but this is likely to be the biggest part of it.

I think it's also worth considering that if we lost bing's trust to some extent, that some of the other search engines could change their minds as well. Policies in the US are changing fast and affecting how businesses operate, we should stay on top of these things.

I suppose the other thing it could be is that we don't have bing ads on our site... perhaps if we had them in our rotation they might think again about blacklisting us.

Why guess? Can't you  just contact them and ask the reason and what you can do on your end to change the situation?

What if it's something else?

I'm not sure what kind of support they have, but everything you need to know is in the documentation and legal agreements, some of it legal. SEO experts are to my eyes the people you pay if you don't want to read and implement the directions. I think as a programmer, my struggle is whether to memorize, annotate, and homogenize the various documentations of the various search engines and recondition myself writing articles using this new style (several days of work), or just learning/practicing more job related programming skills to make myself more marketable. Websites are generally a long term investment. 

 

But generally speaking, for any search engine, they want you to make them money. If your site can make more money for more search engines, they will get more traffic in general. We also don't have yahoo ads and we're nowhere to be found on their search engine. What we need to do is have advertising from as many platforms as possible queued into a rotation and I've just thought of a plugin to improve forum SEO ranking that I might work on someday.
