Bing Webmaster Tools - Join and go down in search results

Personal experience of joining bing webmaster tools

I continuously monitor bing positions from it's very beginning for about 250 target keywords, I have detailed day by day data for each keyword and position.

The website I monitor positions for - is almost perfect at seo, it is an old website of a very good quality, it has about 60000 pages of superb unique content, thousands of quality backlinks and so on.

Interesting thing happened right after joining webmaster tools and adding(on 22th of July) this website to it. About 80% of my monitored keywords were affected immediately, positions were downgraded almost the same day. Some keywords -1, others -30, but all this happened at the same time.

Anybody can report the same situation with positions after joining bing webmaster tools ?

I've got numerous sites in one webmaster tools account and they all enjoy great rankings.

I am in the same boat. Even though I was a bit wary that something like this may happen, I went ahead and signed up for BWT. The next day I checked - all my main keywords took a hit, some as much as -30...

Maybe it was just a really bad coincidence?
