How to Get Indexed by Bing

Thursday, July 2, 2009 @ 11:30 pm by ProBlogit.com

How would you like to get your blog indexed by Bing? Although I am not a search engine optimization or SEO guru, I have observed a lot regarding search engine optimization since I started designing web sites and blog themes. Almost all the sites and blogs I created even those which were not promoted have been successfully indexed by Google as well as Yahoo Search.

Last week, I wrote about the topic on how to get indexed by Google. I did not exactly know how and when Google indexed the blog entries of Pro Blog it. I just know that I wrote quite a lot for ProBlogit.com and linked the blog entries if they were worth linking for, both internally (from this blog) and externally (from my other blogs) without using Digg, Reddit nor StumbleUpon. I have an idea how ProBlogit.com got indexed, I just did not want to sound too presumptuous that I know a lot about it.

I decided to make an experiment with Bing, formerly MSN Live Search. I noticed that most pages that Live Search have, they were like transferred to Bing. ProBlogit.com was not really indexed yet by the former MSN Live Search so when I searched Bing, I only found one page which is the domain name itself.

On June 24, 2009, I submitted three domain names to Bing using the url http://www.bing.com/docs/submit.aspx just to test how long the blogs will be indexed. But I realized that I can actually access the Webmaster Center of Bing when I changed the place from Switzerland to United States as the link to the Webmaster Center is not available in Switzerland. Then I added three domain names to really get the blog entries indexed by Bing.


When I checked Bing today, I saw that ProBlogit.com got indexed but only three (3) pages. The other site got indexed too but the result is not that satisfactory. Then SofieHofmann.com got really indexed by Bing. The number of pages at SofieHofmann.com that got indexed by Bing increased from 29 pages when it was last indexed on June 25, 2009 to 62 pages when it was indexed on June 30, 2009.


If you noticed even if Bing crawled SofieHofmann.com after I submitted it, not a lot of pages and blog entries got indexed right away, only when it got indexed again after June 25, 2009. As I see it, eventually, once Bing and Google get a habit of crawling the sites and blogs, your blog or site will most likely going to be indexed, sometimes depending on the quality of your content. It could be indexed few minutes after you wrote a blog entry, maybe after a day, or it could also take longer than one week.

If you would like to read more about this topic, read my other blog entry at Sehdi.com, Get Indexed by Google and Bing Search Engines. I also wrote about getting indexed by Bing and Google there as I will be discussing other sites other than I already mentioned above.

    my initial test result shows that Bing is as good as Google when displaying relevant search results. Google might be having a tough competitor with Microsofts own search engine.

    It is really, really hard to get indexed by Bing. I’ve been trying to get my 160+ websites indexed in Bing (and MSN before), but after 2 years only 5% is indexed.

    I think they have serious capacity issues. Their frontend works, but their backend has many problems.
