Question: How can I integrate Yoast SEO with Bing?


To integrate Yoast SEO with Bing, you need to get your website verified with Bing Webmaster Tools and submit your XML sitemap.

Step 1: Verify Your Website with Bing

  • First, log in to Bing Webmaster Tools using your Microsoft account.
  • Click on 'Add a Site' and enter your website's URL. Follow the prompts to add details about yourself and your site.
  • Then, choose a verification method. If using Yoast SEO, the easiest method is adding a Meta Tag to your homepage:

  • Navigate to 'SEO' -> 'General' -> 'Webmaster Tools'.
  • Paste the copied tag into the 'Bing Verification Code' field.
  • Click 'Save Changes'.

Update your homepage, and then return to Bing Webmaster Tools and click 'Verify'.

Step 2: Submit Your Sitemap to Bing

Yoast SEO automatically generates an XML sitemap for your site. You can access it by typing '/sitemap_index.xml' at the end of your domain (e.g., '').

To submit this sitemap to Bing:

  • In Bing Webmaster Tools, select your site.
  • Go to 'Configure My Site' -> 'Sitemaps'.
  • In the 'Submit a Sitemap' field, enter the URL of your sitemap and click 'Submit'.

Congrats, you have successfully integrated Yoast SEO with Bing!
