Validation errors, Markup errors found on your site.

Markup errors are not a problem because Google doesn’t care about them. They’re just there to ensure that you don’t have any broken links, images or other issues with your site that might potentially harm its search engine optimization (SEO) and ranking. When you fix markup errors, you’re making sure that valid markup appears in search results and helps improve user experience on your website by providing more relevant information from Google’s algorithms than if they didn’t see those changes when they were browsing through pages on their phone or computer screen at home while looking for something specific within an article/blog post/etc…

Malware details, Malware detection information for your site

Malware is a type of software that is installed without your consent or that you do not know there. Malware can cause damage to your computer and make it unstable. It can also steal personal information from a computer and use it to collect more money from other people using the same computer as you are (either directly or indirectly).

Blocked URLs – could not crawl due to a robots.txt file exclusion or server connectivity issues

It is reported if Bing can’t crawl a web page with a robots.txt file exclusion or if the server cannot be reached.

  • A robots.txt file is a text file that lists all the pages on your site and instructs search engines to exclude them from indexing, which means they won’t appear in search results unless you use meta tags or other techniques to make them visible again (such as using rel=”nofollow”). It’s useful for blocking spammy or low-quality content from indexing by search engines. Still, it is also used by many websites as part of their ranking strategy—for example, by Google itself!

Site move, HTTP Status Code 301

The 301 redirect is permanent. It tells search engines that the destination URL has permanently moved, and it should not be indexed. This can be done by changing your site’s content or moving it to another domain with a new hostname and IP address.

Search keywords, The top keywords that have been used in recent searches.

Search keywords are a useful way of understanding the content people are looking for on your site. The top keywords that have been used in recent searches to find your site and the number of times they have been used to see it will be displayed in this section.
