How To Submit Blog To Bing and Yahoo Search Engine



After creating your blog, I am sure you will like to see your blog appear as part of the search results displayed when Yahoo search engine is used to search for anything that you might have posted to your blog. For your blog to be listed as part of Yahoo search results, you must add your site to Yahoo. This is part of what is known as "Search Engine Optimization".

In my previous posts, I shared with you how to add url to Google search engine and also how to submit sitemaps via Google webmaster tools. Today, I am sharing with you, how to add your blog to Bing and Yahoo search engines, so that your blog can get listed in search results returned by Yahoo and Bing search engines.

With the completion of algorithmic transition to Bing, Yahoo! Search has merged Site Explorer into Bing Webmaster Tools. Hence, to ensure that your blog continue to get high quality organic search traffic from Bing and Yahoo, you must also be using Bing webmaster Tools, in addition to Google webmaster Tools.

How To Get Started

==> You must have an hotmail or live email address. If you do not have one, get one for free at www.outlook.com

Go to : http://www.bing.com/toolbox/webmaster

Click on "Webmasters Tools Sign In"



Once logged in, enter your blog address in the "Add a Site" field and click "ADD"

You will be redirected to a page where you will be prompted to enter your blog's sitemap. If you know your blog's sitemap URL, add it, if not, ignore and click "ADD". You can add the sitemap later.

Thereafter, you will be presented with three options with which you can verify your site.

Click on "Option 2: Copy and paste a meta tag in your default webpage".

You will see a code. You will have to paste this code into your blog. (Don't close this page)

Open a new window, log in to your blogger blog and go to Design ==> Edit html (if using old dashboard) or go to Template ==> Edit html ==> Proceed ( if using new Blogger dashboard).

Once you are in the "edit html" mode, use CTRL F to find  <b:skin>

Copy and paste the code from Bing Webmaster Tools right above it.

Click on "Save Template"

Go back to the "Bing Webmaster Tools" page and click on the "Verify" button.

That's all.

You will have to wait for some days before you will start seeing some data about the blog you added.

In my future post, I will be sharing with you how to add Blogger/Blosgpot Sitemap to Bing webmaster Tools and other SEO related tutorials. So, subscribe to my blog if you want to be receiving the tutorials in your email inbox even if you are not online when I post the tutorials. Make sure you verify your subscription by clicking on the link that will be in the mail that will be sent to you once you subscribe.
