  • That was very helpful Chetan.

    After thinking about that for a moment I don’t think I ever submitted anything to Bing. Of course when I came online and started my blogging ventures Bing wasn’t Bing. I’m going to have to go back now and check that out so I really appreciate you sharing this with us. It just made it a lot easier for me.

    Thank you for this post and hope you’ve enjoyed your weekend.

    By the way, just thought I’d let you know that you don’t have your Twitter ID set up in your social sharing button so you might want to check that out. Will help you know who is sharing your content on Twitter. So important to know my friend.
