Bing has rejected Volusion merchants' ProductURLs for having redirects. The default ProductURL on a Volusion import reads as follows:[ProductCode]

To resolve this issue, please add 'pe.ProductNameShort' to your import and create the following custom rules within your Bing feed.

Rule #1: SEO-Friendly URL when [ProductNameShort] is empty

If you have 'Enable Search Engine Friendly URLs' activated in your Volusion store, the default product links will redirect and cause an error on Bing.

  5. Click Save
