    1. Hai Arun,
      Thanks for investing few minutes at my blog. You are right that Google is so busy but you can’t stop the traffic you get from Bing. There are many users who use Bing as their basic search engine. When any post get indexed in Bing a blogger can get visitors to his/her blog.

  2. Hey Ravi,

    I did this last year and I went through the same exact steps that you shared here and they wouldn’t ever recognize it. I mean this is really the same process as some of the other things I’ve had to do and I never had an issue before. I think I tried this on and off for about three or four days and finally just go so frustrated that I quit trying.

    Silly and stupid I know. My goodness, it was just so frustrating to not have them recognize that my file was loaded on my server. Oh well, maybe I’ll give it another try this year. Right now that’s not exactly top priority for me.

    Thanks for the reminder though because I’m going to have to do this again.


    1. Hello Adrienne,
      Thanks for commenting at BloggingLove. You are somehow right about Bing webmaster tools. The process of crawling and indexing any post is so slow as compared to Google. I have submitted my sitemap which have submitted successfully but it takes much time for the URLs to get indexed. But for a little hope at least we can give it a push.
