As per Bing:
“Today, we are excited to announce the release of the Bing URL Submissions Plugin for WordPress as an open-source project. The plugin allows webmasters of WordPress sites to get their content easily, automatically, and immediately indexed by Bing as soon as their content is published! Who in the SEO community has not dreamed of such ability? Since last year, webmasters have the ability to submit up to 10,000 URLs per day, and more if requested, through the Bing Webmaster Tools portal as well as the Bing Webmaster Tools API for immediate crawl and indexation. Today, we made this submission super easy for WordPress sites by releasing the Bing Webmaster Tools WordPress plugin”.
How it will work?
After you install this and configure the plugin with an API key obtained from the Bing Webmaster portal, the plugin detects when new pages are added or old pages are updated in WordPress. It then will automatically submit the URL to the Bing Webmaster Tools API URL submission feature “ensuring that the site pages are always fresh in the Bing index,” Bing said.
In addition to submitting your content to Bing’s index, this plugin also supports these features:
- Toggle the automatic submission feature.
- Manually submit a URL to Bing Index.
- View a list of recent URL submissions from the plugin.
- Retry any failed submissions from the recent submissions list.
- Download recent URL submissions for analysis.
Installing the Bing URL Submissions WordPress Plugin
Follow these two steps to install the plugin and activate automatic real-time indexing of your content in Bing.
Search for “Bing URL Submissions” from the plugin install page of the WordPress dashboard, or download it here.
Add your Bing Webmaster Tools API key to activate:
Now the URLs for new and updated pages will be submitted to the Bing Webmaster Tools API. This ensures new pages are indexed as soon as they’re published, and existing pages stay fresh. The Bing URL Submissions plugin offers the same capabilities as Bing’s URL submission tool on the web. Up to 10,000 URLs can be submitted per day. And even more, if a special request is made to the Bing Webmaster Tools team.
