Through the Honey Badger update, as we’re calling it, you’ll see noticeable investments in both areas as we launch a revised webmaster experience here at Bing. In fact, you can count on more monthly content being added in the near future as we work through a list of topics we’ll be covering.
Here's some of the key points.
Crawl delay configurable by the hour
Users can ask us to crawl slower during peak business hours and have us crawl faster during off-peak hours Simple drag-and-drop functionality allows you to create a crawl graph by clicking and dragging your mouse pointer across the graph. You can easily fine tune by clicking individual columns, too. Feature enables dedicated pre-set crawl settings for AJAX websites
Index Explorer This is a complete rewrite of the Index Tracker backend focusing on the following tenants:
Freshness Performance Extensibility Reduced machine footprint Stability and failure detection New sites will have Index Explorer data the moment they sign up
User and role management Site owners can now grant admin, read / write, or read-only access to other users for their site using their existing verification code They can also grant users access to parts of their sites (subdomains or folders)
