For webmasters using Bing is not new that they don’t have to wait for their product to be crawled as they can tell Bing about the latest changes in their sites.

In a recent blog post, Bing announced that the Content Submission API is now in the public beta phase and the usage of Content Submission is limited to selected partners.

Up until now, webmasters were able to notify Bing about URL changes through the Bing URL submission API but now they will be able to do this directly via Bing Content Submission API.

Thanks to this update, webmasters will reach more relevant users quicker and will reduce the load time on their sites.

Once the submission of the content is completed successfully you will receive an HTTP 200 response and considering that your Bing webmaster guidelines are also met, your pages will be crawled and indexed in real time.
