Previously I have shown that how we can submit our site inBing webmaster tool for indexing our site, as well as how to submit sitemap onBing. But I have seen that after submitting sitemap to Bing webmaster tools there are many sites having problem that all contents from website is not indexing.

Almost all major search engine who receive sitemap from webmasters they index site per page basis. And in per page they index 150 article’s URL. So if you have 600 articles in your site then Bing will index the whole article’s URL in 4 times in 4 pages.  For example-
  • http://www.bloggerspice.com/sitemap.xml?page=1 for 150 URL
  • http://www.bloggerspice.com/sitemap.xml?page=2 for next 150 URL
But if any issue arises in search engine then Bing will index less than 150 URLs. And in some case it will display status NA. But if they successfully index all URLs then it will display Success status.
