Registering your websites with the search engines

As discussed, I recently moved all of my websites over to Azure. I need to re-register my websites with google, bing, etc so that my sites show up in search engine results. How do you do that? Well here is the detail, one by one:

Google:
This is simple, simple navigate to:

http://www.google.com/addurl/

And put in your URL’s. That’s it.

Yahoo!:
Wait, what? You can go here:

http://search.yahoo.com/info/submit.html

But the “Submit your site” link points to BING!? Did Microsoft buy Yahoo or something?

Bing:
These jokers require that you verify that you are the owner of the domain, which is somewhat of a pain. THey give you 3 options: 1) put an XML file on your site 2) add a <meta> tag to the default page or 3) add a CNAME record to your DNS. In my case, I am opting to do #3, because I can do it all from just logging into Network Solutions and updating my DNS. Anyhow, start here:
