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.
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
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
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)
Bing Toolbox renamed "Webmaster Tools"
