Today during the “Up Close With Bing Webmaster Tools” session with Duane Forrester, (Sr. Product Manager @Bing) at SMX Advanced 2012 Seattle, WA, Duane announced really good news. Bing rolled out an updated version of Bing Webmaster Tools with many extras. Most of the data is just a revamped interface (very similar to Google WMT :)), but I have to say i was pleasantly surprised to see some of their new features. Top 3 are:
- Fetch as Bing Bot – allows webmasters to detect malware by checking source code.
- SEO Analyzer – programatically detects SEO problems, visually displays problems
- Bing Link Explorer- Yahoo Site explorer replacement – check’s competitors backlinks, limited to 1000 links per domain, displays up to 1 million links for a verified domain.
