Bing Webmaster Tools API Now Available
- 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.
