Submit Blog/Website to Ask.com Search Engine: Guide for blogspot, WordPress and Selfhosted blog

Ask.com is a search engine, though google is a Father of all, we can not ignore ask.com. Reason is that some regional search engines crawl data from Ask. So if your blog is submitted to Ask, you will be have a higher chance of getting traffic from other small search engines.

Problem for bloggers who use free blogspot, wordpress, typepad can not create xml sitemap because they can not upload any file in root directory, hence here is a guide for submitting blog to Ask.com via ping.

It is one second process, so do it right away.

For Self Hosted Blog;

Place following link in a browser, change your blog url in “Your Blog URL” and hit enter.

http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=http://YOUR BLOG’s URL/sitemap.xml

For my blog url should be

http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=http://yaio.net/sitemap.xml

For Free platform: Blogspot, WordPress, Typepad

Now for blogspot, wordpress etc platform does not have sitemap.xml but they do have atom or rss.

So use this url

http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=http://YOUR BLOG’s URL/atom.xml

OR

http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=http://YOUR BLOG’s URL/rss.xml

You will see following message

“Ask     Sitemaps
