Ask.com & Bing
Submit your Sitemap To Ask.com
While many webmasters concentrate on optimizing their sites for the top search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing, it would also be good if they optimize their site for Ask.com which is also considered in the top 4 search engines, since it can help to get a good amount of traffic. The process of submitting your sitemap to Ask.com is also an important part of any SEO effort.
Ask.com is a search engine included in the top five search engines. Submit your blog to Ask.com is a great way to help you gain more traffic from search engines other than Google. In my opinion, investing time and effort (and money if any) is the absolute thing that must be done to create strategies to attract traffic blog visitors from various sources. If one source does not provide a lot of traffic, you still have another source. Your blog will not suffer a huge loss in traffic.
Not Like other search engines, Ask.com doesn’t have a webmaster tool for submitting our sitemap. The only way to submit our sitemap to Ask.com is using their XML sitemap ping service, which is really an easy process and it takes no time at all for sitemap submission. Just follow the steps give below.
- If you use WordPress, you can find additional information about sitemap.xml using sitemap generator plugin.
- If you use Blogger, it’s easy because the sitemap has been created by a blogger that is atom.xml, you just add your atom.xml behind the blog url, eg http://ebanxts.blogspot.com/atom.xml
To submit your sitemap in Ask.com replace www.ebanxts.com with your sitename in the below URL and copy paste it to your browser address bar and hit enter.
- WordPress -> http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=http://www.ebanxts.com/sitemap.xml
- Bloggers –> http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=http://www.ebanxts.blogspot.com/atom.xml
If your submission is successful, you will get a results page like the one in the screen shot below.
