Bing will announce their new web tools today for marketeer at 10:00. This comes from Derrick Connell from Microsoft’s conversation. More importantly for marketed is their new search engine is now live 100% across the US.
It gives huge Realestate for people and how people are a very important part of a user experience giving up 20% of total page.
It is also important to know they have overtaken yahoo with 16% ish of search and are shooting for the 20% of the market share and the “side bar” I believe will be their catalyst.
Check out their new look and feel and let me know your thoughts.
OFFICIAL RELEASE DID COME OUT but not until the afternoon, sorry. But here it is:
Dear Bing Webmaster Users,
We’re excited to announce a major change to the type of data and depth of guidance found in webmaster tools
with our Phoenix update to Bing Webmaster Tools. This update includes a
new, fresh user experience, a range of new tools including Link
Explorerbeta and SEO Analyzer/SEO Reportsbeta,
and updates to current tools such as our Keyword Research Toolbeta,
and our URL Removal Tool, among others.
NEW USER EXPERIANCE:
Bing Webmaster has also introduced an entirely new look and feel designed to be fresh and simple,
allowing for easier access to data, enhanced discoverability of information
and improved account management.
Read more below to get all of the details about our update and sign into your Bing Webmaster Tools account today to explore
on your own! Or visit the new BING.com I have switched from Google, and I have been a diehard for years but this new design just makes sense to me and it seems faster too. I suspect in the next 12-24 months BING will increase their position to 20-30% and that makes a REAL STRONG CASE TO OPTIMIZE FOR BING.
