Any idea what is wrong ?


Where did you get that response from and how is it connected to Bing?

Hi error is in:

Diagnostics and tools’
“Show the image from Bingbot to find out how the page code is read by the Bing search engine”

Yes Bing is connected and verified with tag

Can you post that screenshot?

indexing errors:(


Have you defined any entries in the Firewall section in your Cloudflare panel? Also, have a look at the events there if it says anything Bing related. And, what is your security level?

No there is no rules… I has standard security level…

Do the firewall events mention anything? However the block could also come directly from your server. Check the log file there as well.

Do you mean Cloudflare firewall? where i can find log?

In the firewall section as mentioned above :wink:


And the server logs?

I don’t have access. I have to ask my provider…

Is I'm Under Attack Mode enabled?

Is your site using any type of security plugins?

Hello, thanks for the answers and help, it turned out that the operator changed the Bingbot policy on the firewall

Cloudflare has no relation even though it appears in the log.
