Just a quick note to remind folks that YOU can control the crawl rate of Bingbot through Bing's Webmaster Tools.
You can tell Bingbot to crawler slower or faster, and set those rates per hour, over the entire day. So, with these controls, you can tailor when Bingbot crawls you and at what pace.
This is great for managing crawling v. business loads. Tell Bingbot to crawl you slowly during peak business times, and ramp up crawling when you have more bandwidth available.
We do honor the crawl pofiles you set via this tool.
