Submitting your sitemap to Search engine make sure that your blog content get picked by every search engine. We have already written a tutorial on How to submit your sitemap to Google and How to submit your sitemap to Bing. This is one search engine which I have missed. Yahoo search engine is one of the popular search engine after Google and Bing and by submitting your sitemap to yahoo you will make sure to get handful of visitors from Yahoo Search engine.
Step by Step guide to Submit Sitemap to Yahoo Explorer:
Like Google have Google webmaster tool and for Bing we have Bing Webmaster tool. For Yahoo we have Yahoo explorer. You can use your existing Yahoo ID to login to Yahoo explorer.
- Login to Yahoo Explorer
- Under my Site section, add your site URL and click on Add sites.
Like in other Webmasters tool you can verify your site by Meta tag or by uploading a file. I prefer uploading File option so that if I change anything in my blog, my site is still verified with these search engines webmaster tools.
Once you have uploaded the file, click on ready to authenticate and on the next screen you will see confirmation message.
Unlike Google and Bing Webmaster tool here you need to add feed URL instead of sitemap. In WordPress your feed address is yourdomain.com/feed
