Bing’s “Honey Badger” – An Upgrade To Webmaster Tools
Weitz explained that today’s upgrade primarily involves three things:
- Crawl setting management: users can ask Bing to crawl a website less during busy times of day and more during off-peak hours
- Role management: set different access levels for different users in the account
- Toolbox help info: a suite of new videos, data and how-to information
Bing’s blog post also explains the new “Index Explorer” tool, which is a “complete rewrite” of the previous Index Tracker.
Weitz explained that the “honey badger” name is a reference to the popular YouTube video that’s gone viral because the webmaster tools team is equally as “fierce” and “focused” as the honey badger.
