WordPress Bing URL submissions API: Benefits and Webmasters’ voice

As is evident that Bing has been focussing on its journey since last year in providing webmasters more functionality and helping them improve their reach as well as ranking on search queries. Bing URL submission plugin allows webmasters of WordPress sites to get their content easily, automatically, and immediately indexed by Bing as soon as their content is published.
While the standard indexing workflow requires search engines to discover fresh content. They 'poll' your site content or discover a link from another page. This can lead to a delay of days or weeks before new content is crawled to be included in search results.
Bing URL Submission Plugin for WordPress enables automated submission of URLs from WordPress sites to the Bing index. Once installed and configured with an API key obtained from Bing Webmaster portal, the plugin detects page creation/update in WordPress and automatically submits the URL behind the scenes ensuring that the site pages are always fresh in the Bing index.
We asked a few of our customer who adopted the plugin on the whole process. With more than 75% of them becoming our promoters, we are excited to say that not only webmasters are finding the installation process for Bing URL submission API “very easy” but also, they are finding real-time value in getting their URLs for instant indexing.
