We all know Bing has been making some big waves in the Search Engine game. They have of late been doing a stellar job of chasing down the Google Giant, with latest numbers showing a 30% market share of the US Search game. This week, they have announced some cool changes to the Bing Webmaster Tools interface.
The site redesign makes it easier for you to find content, tools and data to help meet your needs. Our new features include expanded functionality, and the data that coincides with these new features.
