Ping MSNbots To Index A Web Page

Microsoft Bing is a popular Search engine and has the potential to bring traffic to your website.

So, we must inform Bing about the latest changes on your websites and blogs.

Bing provides different options to inform them of the recent changes on our websites.

Bing no longer accepts sitemap pinging.

One of the most impressive methods is the direct ping method. You can submit and ping your website sitemap to Bing without logging into the Webmaster tools account. It takes less than ten seconds to ping your website sitemap to let Bing know the recent changes on your website. It will help Bing Spiders (MSNBot) crawl your website and index the changes soon.

Another method is to submit newly added or changed pages in Bing Webmaster Tools directly.

We can inform Bing about the changes in a blog page with the IndexNow feature.

We can inform Bing about the changes on a web page with the IndexNow feature in the Webmaster Tools Account.

My Favorite Method to Ping My Blog in Microsoft Bing

You have learned two different methods to ping your blog for Bing spiders. Out of these two methods, my favorite was method one.

However, Bing stopped this sitemap pinging facility.

In the first method, we do not need to log in to Bing webmaster tools.

We can directly ping the sitemap from a browser, and Bing spiders start crawling the entire website by reading the URLs listed in the sitemap.

However, if I want to inform Bing about a changed page, I use the second method.

One negative side of this method is the daily quota of URLs.

Microsoft Bing increased the maximum number of links to submit per day recently.
