Today, we are excited to announce the release of Bing URL Submissions Plugin for WordPress as open source project. The plugin allows webmasters of WordPress sites to get their content easily, automatically and immediately indexed by Bing as soon as their content is published! Who in the SEO community has not dreamed of such ability?
Since last year, webmasters have the ability to submit up to 10,000 URLs per day, and more if requested, through the Bing Webmaster Tools portal as well as the Bing Webmaster Tools API for immediate crawl and indexation. Today, we made this submission super easy for WordPress sites by releasing Bing Webmaster Tools WordPress plugin. Once installed and configured with an API key obtained from Bing Webmaster portal, the plugin detects both page updates and new pages created in WordPress and automatically submits the URLs behind the scenes to our Bing Webmaster Tools API ensuring that the site pages are always fresh in the Bing index.
