In February Bing announced it was working on a new Bing Webmaster Tools, we saw some early screen shots of it then. Today is the day this new version goes completely live and within the next month the old tool will be gone.
You can access the new Bing Webmaster Tools at bing.com/webmasters/, the old one will be at bing.com/webmaster (without an S) for the next 30 days or so.
URL Inspection Tool
With this launch, Bing added a bunch of new features but one feature I did not cover before and is new, is the URL Inspection Tool that allow you "to inspect Bing indexed version of your URLs allowing to detect potential indexing issues due to crawl or not following Bing Webmaster guidelines."
We already saw the new features including crawl control, URL submission, blocking URLs and more. Also a new site scan tool and robots.txt tester tool. Also, Bing released revamped Webmaster guidelines.
