Bing Webmaster Tools API Now Available

Bing has announced three new features for Bing Webmaster Tools but the biggest new feature to me is the new Bing Webmaster Tools API.

  • Markup Validation Tool. This feature allows webmasters to enter any URL and see what the markup looks like on the page, within the code.
  • Keyword research tool. This tool allows webmasters to perform keyword research on any phrase they enter. All data within the tool is exportable, and Bing holds a history of up to six months for all phrases.
  • Bing Webmaster Tools API. This feature allows webmasters to easily use Bing WMT data in other locations. The main exceptions to this are the messaging and keyword research data.

Now Bing is giving developers structured access to the data within Bing Webmaster Tools. To access it, go to Bing Webmaster Tools API, head to the main page when you login. Immediately below the Preferences option in the left hand navigation, you’ll see the option to access the API.

Here is the full API documents for developers to review.

Outside of that, the first two features list, the first one we covered a couple weeks ago at Bing Webmaster Tools Adds Markup Validator.
