I'm seeing a bigger crawl than I usually do. After seeing a nice index bump last month it appears bing bot is back in full force with some consistency again. It used to be bingbot was almost abusive compared to other bots, guess they tweaked it a bit.

Any tips to when searching for "Sitename" on bing that the related links box shows up? Your IG/FB/Twitter links?

Some new stuff i got messaged about:

* Bing American Sign Language experience - Just bing "Sign Language"
* Science Categories - bing "science on bing"
* Math help is back - bing "math examples on bing" to learn the formulas.

One feature I do like that I'm seeing more is the Carousel

bing "is coffee good for you" and you see two results - not just one in that top snippet section :)

but, i can see that abused by people to perpetuate bull crap so I hope Bing stays ahead of that

Some other things that bing launched:

scrabble assistant - bing "words that start with x" then you get some examples and a box/hint/ends with and other tabs
typing test - see your effective words per minute - just bing "typing test"
