Submit Your Blog’s Sitemap To BING, Yahoo, MSN, Ask, and of course Google !

Submit Your Blogs Sitemap To BING, Yahoo, MSN, Ask, and of course Google !

A detailed tutorial on how to submit your blog’s sitemap to Google has already been published on BloggerStop.
Although for most of the bloggers Google is the main source of traffic among all the search engines, but it doesn’t mean that you can ignore other search engines like Yahoo, MSN Live and Ask.com

In case of Google, once you submit the sitemap, the process is quite automated and Google starts indexing your blog frequently. But for Yahoo, MSN and Ask you have to manually ping them occasionally. So here’s what you have to do to submit your sitemap to these lazy Search engines:

Copy and paste your sitemaps in a text file:
1. http://bloggerstop.net/atom.xml
2. http://bloggerstop.net/rss.xml

Remember to replace the text in blue with your own blog’s url.

Now in the address bar of your Internet browser (IE, Firefox, Opera etc.), paste these lines one by one and hit enter:

Submit Sitemap to Yahoo! :

http://search.yahooapis.com/SiteExplorerService/V1/updateNotification?appid=SitemapWriter&url=http://bloggerstop.net/atom.xml?redirect=false

http://search.yahooapis.com/SiteExplorerService/V1/ping?sitemap=http://bloggerstop.net/atom.xml?redirect=false

Submit Sitemap to Windows Live:

http://webmaster.live.com/ping.aspx?siteMap=http://bloggerstop.net/atom.xml

Submit Sitemap to Ask.com:

http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=http://bloggerstop.net/atom.xml

NOTE: Change the links in RED, with your own Sitemaps (and instead of atom.xml you may use rss.xml too).

Although Yahoo! doesn’t guarantee to include your blog in to it’s directory, but of course there’s harm in pinging it once in a while…

*UPDATE: Now you may also submit your blog’s sitemap to BING, along with your blog’s url:

www.bing.com/webmaster/ping.aspx?siteMap=http://bloggerstop.net/atom.xml

Absolutely no harm !!
Blogger's Google and Google's Blogger…let them ping each other as much as they want 🙂
It's not your bandwidth being wasted, so all's good and nothing bad for us !

Yeah Yahoo has started giving errors (in fact it is like this since months), but others are still fine and working.
