Bing Webmaster Tools’ Submit URL, Block URL and Crawl Control features have been migrated to the new Bing Webmaster portal, the company announced Tuesday at SMX London. Users will be able to use the current and new pages simultaneously for a brief period before Bing deprecates the current pages in a few weeks.
Bing’s new toolset is designed to provide a cleaner, faster, more responsive experience for webmasters and SEOs. The newly migrated tools are useful for controlling how Bing crawls and indexes content. These improvements may encourage more usage and increase adoption.
