Sitemap submission to Ask.com and Bing Search Engine | My Own Ways.

Ask.com & Bing

Ask.com submit site blog 

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.

If your submission is successful, you will get a results page like the one in the screen shot below.

How to create Blog Sitemap

Posted by bates70 on December 11, 2010

This not tutorial or user guide it’s just share how to create Blog Sitemaps. With sitemap will help search engines to better index your blog.  There is a plugin which will automatically create sitemaps for you.

Google XML Sitemaps

This plugin will generate a special XML sitemap which will help search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo and Ask.com to better index your blog. With such a sitemap, it’s much easier for the crawlers to see the complete structure of your site and retrieve it more efficiently. The plugin supports all kinds of WordPress generated pages as well as custom URLs. Additionally it notifies all major search engines every time you create a post about the new content.

Instalation

  1. Upload the full directory into your wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Use your favorite FTP program to create two files in your WordPress directory (that’s where the wp-config.php is) named sitemap.xml and sitemap.xml.gz and make them writable via CHMOD 666. More information about CHMOD and how to make files writable is available at the WordPress Codex and on stadtaus.com. Making your whole blog directory writable is NOT recommended anymore due to security reasons.
  3. Activate the plugin at the plugin administration page
  4. Open the plugin configuration page, which is located under Options -> XML-Sitemap and build the sitemap the first time. If you get a permission error, check the file permissions of the newly created files.

This plugin creates a sitemap for your WordPress powered site. This is not just another XML sitemap plugin, but rather a true sitemap generator which is highly customizable from its own options page in the WordPress admin panel. Some of its features include: support for multi-level categories and pages, category/page exclusion, multiple-page generation with navigation, permalink support, choose what to display, what order to list items in, show comment counts and/or post dates, and much more.
