Thumbs down Bing is a real problem

Unfortunately, if you search an IDN you can't find it!
Do you have seen the SERPs?

What can we do? A mail to the developer team?

Re: Bing is a real problem

I dont think that the problem is with Bing. I have done a search for a few Greek terms, and can see IDNs in the results pages. It might be more to do with how well the sites work in Bing ( SEO wise ) rather a direct issue with IDNs.

Re: Bing is a real problem

are you sure?
I searched a few IDN websites, but it seems to me that the IDN URLs are not recognized, they're not written using the bold characters.

The ones I searched for are in bold characters.
But your original post states that idns are not to be found in Bing's search results, which is not the case.

OTOH, Yahoo still shows punycode. Now that's pathetic.

Do you see? The IDN URL of the website is not recognized, It's not written in bold letters.

Obviously - this is NOT a problem ( if you can call it that ) that is specifically for IDNs !!

Re: Bing is a real problem

Probably I did the wrong example.

This is the right one:


In the URLs, the wrong form is written in bold letters and the right form isn't recognized. There is a clear mistake made by the Bing developers.
