Bing Relaunches Places For Business

bing-placesBing announced they have relaunched the Bing Business Portal under a new name, “Bing Places For Business.”

The change doesn’t currently do much with your listings, outside of move the location of where you manage your business Bing Maps listing to bing.com/places. It also removes some features that were available in Bing Business Portal including:

  • Ability to creating deals
  • Features to add coupons
  • Print QR codes
  • Create your own mobile sites
  • Ability to create and print collateral

Bing did say that this is the first step in their “effort to provide you with all the tools you need to easily and quickly find local customers online.”

Over the next few days, your data will be migrated from Bing Business Portal to the new Bing Places for Business. Those with verified listings will continue to display on Bing and all changes made prior to April 22nd on Bing Business Portal are part of the new platform and the remaining changes are expected to be reflected on the Places for Business platform by April 29th, 2013.

For more details on the change, see the Bing blog.
