Submit your website to Bing

Microsoft's search engine Bing has indeed gained some market share since it went live late this spring. Bing's got its own Webmaster Center where webmasters can use the webmaster tools provided. I'll show you how you can submit your website to Bing's search index.

  1. Login to WebMaster Center with your Windows Live ID.
  2. Add your website's web address and the sitemap address (if you have a sitemap XML file):
    Add web and sitemap address to Bing
    You can also specify your email address if you want Bing to be able to contact you.
  3. Authenticate your website ownership through either XML verification or meta tag authentication. You'll have to upload the XML file or any other file to your website.
  4. Wait for Bing to crawl your website.
    Until then, your site summary will look like this:
    Site status for added website

It might take a couple of days for Bing to add your website to its index. Just remember to be patient and you should be fine!


Great post! Thanks, Martin! Now my blog will be available when you search the Bingster. :o)

Thanks this still holds but traffic from bing is really hard to get.
