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.
