One of the latest comments to come from Microsoft's Bing representative in the Bing Forums was that they consider themselves to be "fairly slow." Fairly slow at indexing new sites and new pages, that is.
Brett Yount, the Program Manager at Bing Webmaster Center, said in a Bing Forums thread:
It is well known in the industry that MSNbot is fairly slow.
Did he just say that? For real?
So what is Microsoft's solution to get new sites into their index? Well, either spam Digg or Yahoo Buzz to be discovered or post a message in the Site not in index thread at Bing Forums and they will manually add you. Yes, there is a forum thread pretty much acting as a URL submit form. How 1995 of them.
