How to Update Sitemap automatic to Google, Yahoo, Bing and other leading Search Engines

by Jaydip on September 7, 2009

I hope you all are using sitemap.xml for your blog / site if you are not you must start using it because It’s a way that you can point your content to Different Search Engines. Search Engine can sniff your site content via you sitemap (Not all the time.) If you are not having sitemap.xml for your site the you probably get code from Google Code Sitemap Generator.

No we are assuming you are having your own sitemap.xml and you want to update instantly to all major Search Engine on a single click or complete atomized then what will you do ? Just follow the bellow mention steps. Here I am assuming that you have basic knowledge of Programming, Server Handling, FTP etc. I will advice you not to execute / edit wrong file if you are not having proper knowledge of Code or Server Admin. You just do it manually copy the bellow mention code (scripts) edit WWW.YOUR-SITE.COM/SITEMAP.XML to your sitemap URL then paste in browser and hit Enter Key.

Automatic Ping to Google

http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/ping?sitemap=WWW.YOUR-SITE.COM/SITEMAP.XML

Microsoft Bing Automatic Ping

http://www.bing.com/webmaster/ping.aspx?siteMap=WWW.YOUR-SITE.COM/SITEMAP.XML

Automatic Ping Yahoo

http://search.yahooapis.com/SiteExplorerService/V1/ping?sitemap=WWW.YOUR-SITE.COM/SITEMAP.XML

Ping Ask.com

http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=WWW.YOUR-SITE.COM/SITEMAP.XML

ping morever

http://api.moreover.com/ping?sitemap=WWW.YOUR-SITE.COM/SITEMAP.XML

This will be manual thing but if you want to make and forgot it thing then what to do? Very Simple You have to  follow following steps. (Make sure you have knowledge of Server Admin)

If you are Using Linux Server

  1. Download ping.php file from bellow mention link
  2. Edit the file with your sitemap URL.
  3. Upload that file in your sites root folder.
  4. Now log on to your Control Panel.
  5. Find an Option for Create Cron Job
  6. Define Cron Job as per your site requirement, Daily, Weekly, Every 1 Hour etc.
  7. Select ping.php as schedule file.

If you are using Windows Server then check this:

You can do this in task scheduler of windows server. Task can be created manually in the task scheduler or with @ commands and can be designated to run under a user account with privileges. There is also a software (free) called nnCron which uses the same kind of syntax that of Linux on Windows.

This is shared by Vishal Vasu, a Windows Server Management Expert. Thx Vishal.

Congregates ! You are done with auto execution of your Sitemap file.

Download Ping.php

hi jaydip,

How does this work with wordpress? Is this really required or can we use the plug-in’s that are available to generate the sitemap.xml files?

BTW: thanks for quoting me

Bing does give search results much like Google but i would have to say that Google still gives more relevant search results

i am using both Bing and Google and i think both search engines give relevant search results. i would still prefer Google though, because it gives a little bit more relevant search results than Bing.
