    I noticed this earlier today. Kind of like Bing’s flight fare search. I like it.

    This is a step in the right direction for Bing. Providing webmasters with as much data as possible has proven to work with Google’s Webmaster Tools because of the fact you pay a lot more attention and do things the right way. Although this data isn’t incredibly useful to most people, it shows that Bing is trying to do things to appease webmasters, which is never a bad thing.

    Gooogle add this feature days ago. So this is nice try of Bing to amtch with google webmaster. One of the best thing is now we can compare even 3 months of data in Bing webmaster.

    Its good that both Google and Bing are both competing against each other more with there webmaster tools now because it should hopefully keep them both on the ball and feeling they need to bring out more tools to out do the other.

    One thing I did notice about the image above, if the “crawl errors” percentage has gone down, shouldn’t the number be green not red? Because I don’t know about all of you or Bing, but I thought that it was better not to have crawl errors lol

    Hi Nathaniel, good catch. In the case of crawl errors, fewer is definitely better. Barry didn’t leave a link to my blog post in this article, but feel free to post any additional feedback you may have in the comments section of http://www.bing.com/community/site_blogs/b/webmaster/archive/2012/08/22/get-more-useful-metrics-out-of-your-bing-webmaster-tools-site-dashboard.aspx or any upcoming posts. Cheers!

    Sanket – you are absolutely right: GWMT had this feature for some time but as you pointed out Bing WMT are showing % change information for a full 3-months period, whereas GWMT only surfaces change information for the last 30 days of available data.

    This is good for us because Google and Bing are both competing ….
