Bookmark: Microsoft proposes method to automatically submit URLs from WordPress to search engines | Search Engine Land
Microsoft wants to build into the core of WordPress the ability to automatically push new and updated URLs to Bing and other search engines.
Since so much of the web is built on WordPress, this could save current and future smaller engines a lot of crawling time. I think this could be good for the Indieweb and Independent Web of non-commercial bloggers.
I like that this isn’t just for Bing but other search engines could use it too. It ight help even the crawler playing field against Google.
However, beware, I can see this quickly being abused by SEO’s so I guess each search engine would have to develop some way to filter out the dreck from the real content from this firehose.
