Bing Adds Features To Its Webmaster Tools

Bing Adds Features To Its Webmaster Tools
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:

    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)

  • Earlier
    Bing Toolbox renamed "Webmaster Tools"

    Bing webmaster tool has improved a lot in past 1 year with a good interface.

    Has anyone tried to verify a new site? I can't get it done because the verify button is not there.

    My browser says:
    The information you have entered will be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be read by a third party.

    That's soooo reassuring.
