Bing updates Webmaster Tools from the ground up

Bing has been a breath of fresh air for Microsoft in the search market. They finally have a product worth mentioning in the same breath as Google and today they are announcing a complete overhaul to their backend tools.

Bing, in their words, listened to the feedback of users so that they could create better tools for the users.  “We reached out to the webmaster and SEO communities to see how we could improve the webmaster tools. Your feedback was very consistent: you wanted more transparency to see how Bing crawls and indexes your sites, more control over your content in the Bing Index, and more information to help you optimize your sites for Bing

As with any web analytic tools, the idea is to take vast quantities of information and transform them into applicable charts and graphs that are not only easy to understand but also allow you to make critical decisions regarding the direction of your website. 

Bing says that they have built their news tools from the ground up and the good news is that if your already a user, your account has been upgraded.  You can check out all the release information from the Bing Blog here.

Glad to see them trying but like it has already been mentioned Google Analytics is way better and so widespread at this point that Bing needs to come out with some really revolutionary stuff to take any thunder from GA which Microsoft isn't exactly famous for doing so...

Finally. Th old webmaster tools were trash. I'm glad they rebuilt it from the ground up. I still think GA is better, but this certainly a leg up for Bing
