If you wish to increase your visibility and traffic, it is very important to ensure that your blog is submitted to the major search engines. In this blog, we will explain how to submit your blog to search engines. Along with Google, you would also learn to submit your blog on Bing and DuckDuckGo.
We all know that Google is the first choice for netizens to search for any information. Some people also use a few other search engines also. So, it would be wiser to submit your site to those engines as well
How to submit your blog to Bing?
Open Bing Webmaster Tools and get yourself registered there
Sign in with your ID
Upon being prompted to add the site, go for the manual site adding option that allows you to submit the site directly without the condition of getting it verified with Google search console
Next, type your URL and click the Add button.
You will then be presented with a few verification options. Select HTML Meta tag method to see the details. It will show you the HTML Meta Tag
Copy the HTML Meta tag by clicking the copy button.
Visit your home page in a website editor and paste the copied text line in your head section for creating a new Meta tag. Don’t forget to save the changes before closing the editor.
Manual submission requires a few efforts and some time but it is worthy as it facilitates quick site indexation by immediately attracting the search engine spiders. Bulk submission, on the other hand, is an easier and almost instant process but unlike the manual method, it doesn’t offer quicker or guaranteed indexation.
