Bing Sitemaps (Formerly Yahoo Sitemaps)

Bing Sitemaps provide an easy way for you to submit all your URLs to the Bing index and get detailed reports about the visibility of your pages on Bing.  With Bing Sitemaps you can automatically keep Bing informed of all your web pages, and when you make changes to these pages, they automatically help improve your coverage in the Yahoo crawl.  To enable Bing Sitemaps:

  1. Log in to your XSite.
  2. Click XSite on the top toolbar to access the Wizard.
  3. On the bar just beneath the top toolbar, click Search Engine Tools.
  4. On the screen that appears, click Yahoo Sitemaps on the left.
  5. Under Step 4, copy everything in the Sitemap URL field.
  6. Visit www.bing.com/toolbox/webmaster in a new browser window.  You'll need to log in to Bing Webmaster Tools with a Live ID.  If you don't have a Live ID, you can create one for free.
  7. After you log in to Bing Webmaster Tools, click Add Site in the Sites section.
  8. Enter the entire domain for your website.  If your domain is mydomain.com, enter www.mydomain.com.  Then, click Submit.
