How to Submit Your Blog Site to Bing
Similar as submitting a blog/website url to Google as we see in previous post, there are two ways to submit your blog to Bing & Yahoo, from the submission pages and from the Bing Webmaster Tool.
The submission pages will notify Bing & Yahoo robot to come to your site but does not guarantee every single pages can be found. Therefore submit a Sitemap will help the blog fully indexed.
1. URL submission to Bing and Yahoo
Bing's blog/website URL submission page address is: http://www.bing.com/toolbox/submit-site-url
Yahoo's blog/website URL submission page is at http://search.yahoo.com/info/submit.html, it actually redirects users to Bing's submission.
Bing's submission page screenshot is in following:

A. To submit Sitemap to Google, you have to first generate a Sitemap for your site. The Sitemap can be generated by using Downloadable Sitemap Generator Tools, or Online Sitemap Generators.
Note: If your site is a blog and is on Blogger.com, then you can use your blog site RSS feed as Sitemap. The site RSS feed url format is like: http://yourblogname.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default
Bing accepts 4 different formats of sitemaps: XML Sitemap, RSS 2.0, Atom 0.3 & 1.0, Text (a plain text file containing one URL per line)
B. Register an account for Bing Webmaster Tool at http://www.bing.com/toolbox/webmaster , login to it.
C. From Bing Webmaster Tool dashboard, look for the Sitemaps widget, click Submit a Sitemap to show a text box, in which you can enter the location of your sitemap file URL
D. Type in your blog site URL, click Submit.
That's it, you done !
