Do you use Bing Webmaster tool?

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.
