Do I need to notify MSN when my Sitemap has been updated? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    This may be kind of a stupid question but I have not found a clear answer... I've submitted my sitemap to MSN via the webmaster tools. Sitemap is verified. Ok now what I make a change with my sitemap xml file do I need to notify MSN or will the MSNbot crawl the sitemap file again? We all know Google checks sitemap file regularly but does MSN do the same?

     

    Understand I'm not asking about a crawl rate... I just want to know, once MSN know where my sitemap file is will it come back and crawl it again in the future automatically?

  • I actually went looking for the same information in the webmaster dashboard today.

    So, are sitemaps continually crawled for updates? If not, is there a way for us to let you know when they have been updated?
