How to Submit Sitemap to Bing Search Engine

In this article I will tell you how to submit sitemap to Bing search engine. Submitting a sitemap to Bing search engine is easy there are only a few prerequisites to submitting a blog. Beforehand you should collect the following information:
  • Blog's URL 
  • Blog's Sitemap
  • Windows Live Account (either Hotmail or Outlook account will also work)
After you have gathered the above essentials, we open the Bing's Webmaster tools at the link below:
https://www.bing.com/toolbox/webmaster/
 A webpage will open as shown below:

  • Now, verify ownership of the blog by one of the three options given:
    • Option 1: Place an XML file on your web server
    • Option 2: Copy and paste a tag in your default webpage
    • Option 3: Add CNAME record to DNS
As we are using a blogspot blog we will use option 2 as it seems to be the easiest. If you wish to use other options and they are easy to implement you can use them. But I will be going further with option 2 - "Copy and paste a tag in your default webpage".

Verifying Blogger Blog for Bing Webmaster Tools

This tag that we copied from Bing Webmaster Tools will be placed in the blogger blog's theme HTML code. After copying the meta data tag, follow these steps:
  • Open your blogger account
  • In the "Theme" sidebar option (1), click "Edit HTML" (2).

The theme's HTML code will show up. This is where you can edit the theme's code and modify it according to your choice. Before you start poking around with the code it is advised to save the blog's working theme beforehand.

Now, inside the head tag paste the meta tag copied from  Bing Webmaster Tools. It should look like this:
