I have discussed prior about submit submission to Google. Today you will learn how to submit Blogger sitemap to bing and automatically index to Yahoo, MSN other partner search engines of Bing.com. As like Google search console Bing also supports sitemap submission through bing webmaster tools and you’ve to login with your microsoft live or hotmail account. Generally Bing Webmaster Tool is a project of Microsoft and recently yahoo joined with this project to index website maps in their directory so users get facilitated through one submission across Bing.
And MSN sitemap submission also to the same way. It’s the great enterprise of Microsoft and webmasters become facilitated to drive ultimate free webtraffic from these major sources of traffic like Bing,MSN and Yahoo.
Submit Blogger Sitemap To Bing
First of all go to Bing Webmaster Tools and log-in with your live,hotmail account
Within moments you’ll be redirected to the page and click on Add a site
Now write your site URL, a sitemap URL, and keep All Day(Default) for third option for Most Web-traffic Time
Note: A sitemap URL should contain the following RSS or Atom feed format
For 500 Pages
For 1000 Pages
For 1500 Pages
atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500 atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=501&max-results=500 atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1001&max-results=500
Now you could understand for containing how much pages you have to submit which sitemap. Generally 1, 501, 1001 are the initialization value of your sitemap feed url and 500 refers to the last indexed value of your sitemap file. Normally for every search engine robots have the ultimate capacity of indexing up-to 500 pages at a time.
If you want to submit a sitemap.xml file then you couldn’t submit exceeding 500 pages at a time indeed, even search engine spiders crawl and index 500 pages.
Now bing webmaster tool will ask you to verify your site ownership and there are three steps to verify, we strongly recommend you to choose second one. You will be provided a meta tag just add the code right after opening the <head> section of your default webpage. You will get an example also there, of meta implantation
Finally hit on Verify button and a congrats message will approach and therefore you’ll be redirected to the dashboard automatically. If it takes further delay then click on Continue to manually access to the dashboard
Now your account dashboard will appear and you could see a static overview of your site. Your pages will remain on pending
After 24 hours you could see your Indexed and Crawled Pages as well as Crawl Errors, Appeared In Search, Clicks From Search like follows
Note: You submitted a sitemap for up-to 500 pages while your blog exceed 500 pages then you need to submit another sitemap manually
Benefits Of Bing Sitemap Submission
Once you submit your sitemap to bing webmaster tool then you could get some benefits as follows
1. Your sitemap will be automatically indexed to Yahoo
