Submit Your Blog/Website to MSN? How?

Update: You can now login to your WordPress.com blog’s dashboard. Go to Tools/Tools and enter your MSN codes in the text field provided. Hit the button Save Changes to submit to MSN Webmaster Tools.

I have talked about How to Add Google Sitemap to WordPress.com Blog and Submit Your WordPress.com Blog to Yahoo a while ago. Lately I have tried to submit my WordPress.com blog to MicroSoft Network (MSN) but it failed to read the page that I’ve created. So this post is mainly for self-hosting blog/website only. If you want to continue, I will show you how you can submit you self-hosting blog/website to MSN.

Submitting your blog/website to search engines like Google, Yahoo, and MSN can help them index your blog/website efficiently. Thus increasing the visibility of you blog/website to your visitors. Before you want to continue you need to sign up an account with MSN.

  • Next login to your account, click on a button sign in to use webmaster tools
  • Go to next page and click on a button Add Site to add your blog/website
  • A window will popup. Fill in the information in the empty field. See the screenshot below:
    MSN Add Blog
    Click Submit button to submit your blog/website to it.
  • A new window will popup showing you two options that you can verify your site’s ownership. See a screenshot below:
    MSN Add to Head
    Choose option 2 to proceed.
  • Once you have got a piece of code from option 2, you have to login to your WordPress blog/website dashboard. Click on Appearance/Editor/Header, paste the code between <head> and </head>, and hit the button Update File to save it.
  • You have to wait for three days in order to see the current status and recent trends of your blog/website’s activity within Bing.
  • After three days, you can observe how your blog/website does by logging in your account regularly.
  • Each web address within MSN Webmaster Tools will show you percentages of clicks, impressions, pages indexed, and pages crawled as well as a chart of crawl summary, pages with crawl errors, index summary, and traffic summary.
