Bing Webmaster Tools Adds Connected Pages Dashboard
Duane Forrester, the Senior Product Manager at Bing announced a new feature within Bing Webmaster Tools named the “Connected Pages Dashboard.”
Formerly known as linked pages, connected pages is a way for Bing to allow you to tell them what pages you own under your social network. Once you verify these social profiles, Bing connects the dots.
With the new connected pages dashboard within Bing Webmaster Tools, Bing will show you the number of clicks and impressions each social network sent your site from Bing’s search results. Here is a picture of the dashboard showing social activity over time in search:
The social networks that may show up here include Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Windows Store, Google Play, Apple Store, Pinterest, Windows Phone Store, YouTube, Instagram, and MySpace.
Duane from Bing explained the data will show up 72 hours after you have connected those profiles to your account.
You can access the connected pages feature under Bing Webmaster Tools under “Configure My Site.”
