How to Submit URL to Search Engine of Google, Bing and Yahoo?
Welcome to Digital Patel.
In this blog, I’m going to show you how to Submit URL to Search Engine of Google, Bing and Yahoo?
If you have a new website or a new blog. It won’t be index by Google, Bing or yahoo until you submit it to search engine. Note: Yahoo pulls the results from Bing.
So, let’s start with Google.
Now, until recently, the easiest way to submit a website or a webpage to google was via their URL Submission tool. You entered the URL, Hit Submit and that was it. But Google discontinued this tool in 2018, so now the only way to Submit URL to Search Engine is by adding a sitemap in Google Search Console.
So, first things first, you need to verify ownership of the website or blog you want to submit via Search Console. I’ve already done that for my website (https://www.digitalpatel.in).
If you haven’t done that for yours, check out the full blog post at https://ahrefs.com/blog/submit-website-to-search-engines/, where you will find a link to a tutorial showing you how to do it step by step.
You also need to create a sitemap, which again, I’ve already done with WordPress Yoast SEO plug-in.
So, now all I need to do it head to the Sitemaps section in search console, enter my sitemap URL and hit submit button.
If you are still using the old Google Search Console than you can find the same sitemaps sections under the crawl heading on the left-hand menu.
But what if you just want to submit, or resubmit a single webpage URL to Google?
For that you can use the Fetch as Google tool which located under the same sub-header of crawl.
Here you just need to enter the URL of the Blog or a website you want to submit and hit ‘FETCH” and then click the “Request Indexing” button.
This is a super inefficient way to submit lots of page or an entire website to Google. This way you can only submit you
Now Let’s move on to the Bing.
Similar to Google, Bing has also discontinued its public URL submission tool in 2018.
So, a much better option to Submit URL to Search Engine Bing is to submit your sitemap via Bing webmaster tools, which you can do at https://bing.com/webmaster/home/addsite.
You’ll be asked for your Domain URL and sitemap URLs, along with few other bits of information you and your website.
Once you have filled in the form, hit Submit and you’re done.
As I mentioned earlier, Yahoo pulls results from Bing so submission to Bing, results in automatic submission to Yahoo.
Finally, If you want to check the index status of particular website or webpage, go to Google.com or Bing.com and type the; “site:digitalpate.in”; if your website or webpage shows in search engine that means it’s indexed. If not, there may be an issue.
