Bing Webmaster

Previously we have discussed about Sitemap, it’s importance and How to Submit Blogger Sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools.
Just like Google, Bing also offers its webmaster tools, which allows webmasters to add their websites to the Bing index crawler. The service also offers tools for webmasters to troubleshoot the crawling and indexing of their website, sitemap creation, submission and ping tools, website statistics etc. In this tutorial, I am going to explain, how to submit blogger sitemap to Bing Webmaster Tools,

#Step 1: Submitting Blog/Website to Bing Webmaster Tools
  • Log in to Bing Webmaster Tools Click Here
  • Go to My Sites > Add A Site
  • You will be redirected to ‘My Website Details’ Page
