Organic visitors (the visitors who reach your web site from search engine serach results) are very important for webmasters. Because they are the unpaid visitors. For this reason google is a very important search engine. But Bing is the default search engine for Internet Explorer. For this reason we have to use bing webmaster tools and submit our sitemap to help bing crawler, crawl our websites easily.

The thing webmasters should do is simply visit Bing Webmaster Tools. You can sign in or sign up with your Windows Live ID. Then you must verify your website.

Verify Your Web Site

You can verify your website in two ways.

  1. Upload an XML file on your webserver
  2. Copy and paste a tag in your default webpage

Bing crawls and forms a treeview sitemap for you. But if you like you can submit 10 URL’s per day and 50 URL’s per month.

How to submit your website to Bing

After logging in and verifying your website, simply click on the crawl tab, and from the left menu click on Sitemaps. After that you can click on “Add Sitemap” button and enter your Sitemap URL. After your sitemap is verified Bing will easily crawl your website.
