How to submit website to Bing webmaster tools


Hi guys, this tutorial will show you how to submit your website to Bing (Bing Webmaster Tools), along with your sitemap file. You just have follow these steps and you will also successfully submit your website to bing and yahoo search engines.

Step 1

First we will head over to the Bing Webmaster Tools website. (http://www.bing.com/toolbox/webmaster) If you don’t have a Microsoft account you can always signup for a free one.

Step 2

Once you are logged in the first thing you want to do is add your website URL. Enter your domain and hit “Add.”

Step 3

Now we will need to put in the location of your sitemap file. Your sitemap is most likely located at the root of your URL, example http://yourdomain/sitemap_index.xml. But you can always test it as well.

Step 4

It will now ask you to verify your website. There are a couple of options to choose from. I recommend option 2, adding the meta tag to your website. Go ahead and copy the meta tag.

Step 5

If you are running WordPress I highly suggest installing the WordPress SEO plugin. Once installed, go down to the “SEO” section and click on dashboard. Paste your Bing meta tag into the Bing Webmaster Tools section and click “Save Settings.”

But if you are working on blogger then you have to edit your html file. Just log in to blogger and select your blog. Then Go to Theme > Edit HTML. Then paste the meta tag just after the <head> tag.

Step 6

Now back in Bing Webmaster Tools click on the “Verify” button.

Step 7

Then under the sitemap status you can check the status of the sitemap file to make sure it was submitted successfully. I always recommend waiting a day or so before seeing if your BWT sitemap was processed correctly. It will show you how many pages/posts have been submitted and then how many are actually indexed. Bing will now automatically crawl your sitemap file on a regular basis.
