#StackBounty: #wordpress #baidu WordPress site submitted to Baidu doesn't get crawled

Bounty: 50

I’ve got a website (WordPress blog, custom .net domain, hosted in Germany) that I’ve submitted via the Baidu webmaster tools, via all of the available tools, that is, direct URL submission, sitemaps and the JavaScript snippet that auto-submits new links. For all of the manual submissions there have been no errors and nothing indicates any problems – except, however, that it simply doesn’t get crawled at all. It all works fine on both Google and Bing though.

The page is using HTTPS (Let’s Encrypt) and there’s an automatic redirect to HTTPS in place, however as far as I understood the documentation that should be okay, and again, the report on HTTPS also indicated no problems with the certificate. Also, the page is accessible without a VPN, so I didn’t suspect anything wrong on that front.

Are there any good pointers on how to even start debugging this?
