bingbot Series: Introducing Batch mode for Adaptive URL submission API

We launched the Adaptive URL submission capability that allowed webmasters to submit up to 10,000 URLs using the online API or through Bing webmaster portal (Submit URLs option). Since the launch we have received multiple requests from webmasters for the ability to submit the URLs in batches.

As we are actively listening to the webmaster and their needs, we are delighted to announce the Batch mode capability for Adaptive URL Submission API which will allow the webmasters and site managers to submit URLs in batches, saving them from those excessive API calls made when submitting the URLs individually.
The Batch URL Submission API is very similar to the individual URL Submission API (Blogpost) and hence integrating the Batch API is very easy and follows the same steps.
Example requests for the Batch URL Submission API for the supported protocols can be seen below

JSON Request Sample 

POST /webmaster/api.svc/json/SubmitUrlbatch?
apikey=sampleapikeyEDECC1EA4AE341CC8B6 HTTP/1.1
Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8


XML Request Sample

POST /webmaster/api.svc/pox/SubmitUrlBatch?
apikey=sampleapikeyEDECC1EA4AE341CC8B6 HTTP/1.1
Content-Type: application/xml; charset=utf-8

<SubmitUrlBatch xmlns="">
<string xmlns=""></string>
<string xmlns=""></string>
<string xmlns=""></string>

You will get a HTTP 200 response on successful submission of the URLs. Meanwhile the URLs will be checked to comply with Bing Webmaster Guidelines and if they pass, they will be crawled and indexed in minutes.
Please refer the Documentation for generating the API key and Batch URL Submission API for more details. Do note that the maximum supported batch size in this API is 500 URLs per request. Total limit on numbers of URLs submitted per day still applies.
So, integrate the APIs today to get your content indexed real time by Bing and let us know of what you think of this capability. Please reach out to if you face any issue while integrating.
Thanks !
