Re: Bing | IndexNow API integration

How to integrate Bing's IndexNow API with my online store?

55 0 9


I want to index my store on Bing/ use the webmaster tool IndexNow.

Here I get an API incl some brief instructions (screenshot) plus an example (2nd screenshot).

I saw a few youtube vids which say that I need to create a developer app in shopify in order to add the API. Here it looks like that I cannot change the API, instead its being generated by the new app.


I remember the google side verification was copied into the theme.liquid file. Maybe here it is a similar approach with Bing.

Could someone assist here or refer to a link/ video which provides guidance?


Thank you

I'm nor sure why Shopify is not addressing a simple implementation for integration with Indexnow. I'm following this thread to see if there is a response from anyone.

I am having the same problem. I easily copied the code for google into the theme liquid. But now I am trying to get Bing / Index Now up and running but I have no idea how to add the API text file to the root directory. I barely know what these words even mean and I'm not finding much online about it. Additionally, I tried signing up to cloudfare and adding my website that way and it didn't recognize it.... 


Did you solve your problem DaveD??

We're looking to Implement IndexNow via Bing on Our Shopify Website. The documentaion at is not clear.
How do we upload this file to shopify?
Also Sending urls one at a time does not seem to be very useful
Is there some documentation on how to Submit a set of urls using an HTTP request as I dont fully understand this process.
Any help would be much appreciated

We are thrilled to introduce IndexNow integration to Shopify with our newly launched InstaIndex app. The app takes care of generating and managing the API key, key verification, and automatically submits URLs to IndexNow when you create a product or update an existing one. You can also bulk submit existing products from the Products page in Shopify using bulk actions or manually submit up to 10,000 URLs at once.

Please check out InstaIndex and let us know if this solves your problem, or if you have any further questions, contact us at

Absolutly right there is a big issue here : "Shopify interdit le téléchargement de fichiers à la racine du site. Le problème est remonté depuis des mois mais ils ne veulent pas le régler. Du coup, les sites Shopify ne peuvent utiliser ce protocole pour indexer sur Bing et Yandex"..... More than a year and still here ..... Please shopify team
