Bing Webmaster Tools

Bing has updated their Webmaster Tools. You need to have Silverlight version 4 installed to view the changes.

This big improvement looks good and reveals better crawling statistics from the Bing search engine (bingbot/msnbot) that Google Analytics ignores in most cases. I have checked the same site with Google Analytics (GA) and with the Bing Webmaster Tools (BWT). GA indicated that the only traffic to my site came from Google, Baidu and Yahoo! – and some others. However when I checked the BWT it showed me huge amounts of traffic from Bing. Somebody is ignoring the competition… 🙂

Some screenshots from the new Bing Webmaster Tools:

They serve the basic statistics from Bing but I guess the tools will be extended in the (near) future with some extra features .
