Are you using Bing Webmaster tool?

You properly already know Google Webmaster tools if you have been working with SEO on your website, but did your knew that Bing has a similar service called Bing Webmaster tool? It works pretty much the same way as Google webmaster tools, but of cause based on Bing’s search engine.

I am no expert in Bing Webmaster Tool, not yet :-)
Anyway I want to give you my little review of the tool anyway. One of the first things I noticed was that it is 3 day behind with the statistic. That is a shame I think when you are used to use Google Webmaster tool. On the other hand you can add single URL to the Bing Search Engine. That is a nice feature if you have a page that Bing doesn’t index automatically. You are allowed to add up to 50 URLs every month, but maximum 10 each day. That seems like a fair limit I think.
Like in Google you can add a sitemap as a XML file. It works pretty much like with Google. In general I think that it is a good tool, but still not as good as Google Webmaster Tools. It might be in the future if Microsoft add more features to their service.

    Hey Thomas,

    I looked at Bing webmaster tools a couple of times after I added my blog, but I haven’t been there in months. There’s not much talk about it, so it’s good to see that you’re bringing up the topic. Thanks.

      Hi Ileane
      Great to see you here at my blog 🙂
      You are right about that, but it looks like Bing is growing bigger and bigger these days so I don’t want to miss out on anything there.
      Hope to see you back here soon 🙂

    Hi, Thomas. I actually don’t use Bing’s webmaster tools, so I can’t compare it to Google’s. I believe I submitted my site there, but that was it. I use Google’s webmaster tools quite a bit. They have so much to offer.

    Thanks for the info.

    You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation however I in finding this topic to be actually one thing that I think I might never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely extensive for me. Im taking a look forward to your subsequent submit, I will try to get the hang of it!Thx, btw try http://tinyurl.com/9cjz3rh – good news , bye for now
