Microsoft Proposes A Method To Automatically Submit URLs From WordPress To Search Engines

Over at Microsoft Bing, The Principal Program Manager, Fabrice Canel, put in a feature request to WordPress that allow the CMS to push new and updated URLs directly to search engines.

According to Canel’s proposal, ““Today, we propose integrating in WordPress Core the ability to notify not only Bing, but also all participating Search Engines, of any WordPress URL or Content change. Microsoft to develop and maintain the open-source code in close collaboration with WordPress. WordPress to approve, validate and include code.”

Site owners have the ability to opt-out or select content that they wouldn’t want to be submitted to search engines.
