Last week, we learned how to submit a Sitemap to Google. Since Google handles 65.4% of all US searches, it’s in your best interest to notify them about all of your site’s content, and that’s exactly what the Sitemap does. But let’s not forget about Bing. Technically, they handle 30.1% of all US searches (Yahoo! Search is powered by Bing) so you definitely want to notify them about your content as well. With that in mind, this short video shows you how to submit a Sitemap to Bing:
Hello and welcome to Gnome Tips! Today we will show you how to submit a Sitemap to Bing.
First, log into Bing Webmaster Tools using your Windows LiveID. Then, select the site that has the Sitemap you’d like to submit.
Next, click the “Crawl” tab, and then, select the “Sitemaps” option.
Now, click on the “Add Feed” button, and type your Sitemap filename in the box that pops up. When you’re done, click the “Submit” button.
If there weren’t any problems, you should see a page like this one, and your Sitemap has been successfully submitted to Bing.
