How To Add Your Blog/Site URL To Bing Webmaster Tools


Previously, I made a tutorial posts on how to how to add your blog url  to google webmaster tool which has helped many readers in their SEO optimization. We all know that Google is not the only search engine. There are also more popular search engines out there example is Bing and Yahoo. After you create your blog to standard, you will love to see your blog on search engines and this with the help of SEO (Search Engine Optimization).


Here, I want to teach you how to add your blog/site url to bing webmaster tools. Doing this, will make your blog or site appear on Bing Search engine. 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 addition with Google webmaster Tools.

How To Get Started


==> Firstly, you must have an hotmail or live or Microsoft 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, input your blog address in the
"Add a Site" field and click "ADD"


Now, 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.


Therfore, you will be given 3 options or ways with which you can verify your site. (Ownership)
1. Place XML file on your web sever
2. Copy and paste <meta> tag to your default web pages.
3. Add CNAME Record to DNS.

I will advise you to choose either 2 or 3. but I will say option 2 (Copy and paste <meta> tag to default web pages) is the best and fast way. But if you can't access your html template for that moment, you can opt in for option 3 (Add CNAME Record to DNS)


Copying and Pasting <meta> Tag To Default Web Page

On the verification page, click on "Option 2: Copy and paste a meta tag in your default webpage".

You will be given a meta tag code to paste into your blog. The code looks like below (It's an example. Don't copy, make use of the one given to you)

  <meta name="msvalidate.01" content="BB939CD7914EFB9543CFE2322D89C4A5" />

Open a new window or tab, log in to your blogger dashboard and go to Theme ==> Edit HTML

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

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

Method 2 :
Just search <head> in the template edit page. And paste the code below 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.
