How to Add a Site and Submit a Sitemap to Bing:

You need a Microsoft Account to submit your sitemap in Bing. If you don't have a Microsoft account (that means Hotmail), you have to create a "Hotmail Account".

<meta name="msvalidate.01" content="XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" />

  • Copy the code. Don't close this window. Here's a screenshot:

  • Now, go to your Blogger Dashboard>Template>Edit Template.
  • Your sites' HTML editor is opened. Find: <head> (by pressing Ctrl+F).

  • Then, Save Template.
