How To Submit Blogger Sitemap In Bing And Yahoo?

Today we will learn how to add blogger sitemap to bing and yahoo webmaster tools. but before we go forward, I want to tell that sitemap submission to Yahoo was done by using Yahoo Site Explorer. But last year (21/11/2011) Yahoo Sitemap Explorer service completely transferred to Bing Webmaster Tools with a partnership agreement. This means you will get traffic to your site from both Yahoo and Bing by submitting your sitemap to only Bing Webmaster Tools.
