    Oh, Bing. I like their toolset, I see that google has really tried hard ot keep up with bing on the toolset... but I do have one very specific grumble:
    * it automatically redirects pages without telling you the URL you’re searching Is a redirect...Open site explorer does this as well... SO annoying because you're into your analysis and then you're like Oh wait, wrong data set this is the www. and not the non.www..

    I think in general, what would put bing ahead would be to have more parsing features with the link data... it looks like they just took linkdomain: command and just wrapped an app around it... there is room to add much more robust parsing features..just in general...
    "...using this: sages act out of constructs but they do not rely on them"

    Thanks for that whiterabbit.

    Interesting to see you feel G are trying to keep up - can you cite an example or two that you have in mind?

    To see if I understood you properly, you're saying that Bing and OSE both will take a query for 'site.com' and show you link data for 'www.site.com' instead? But only if the one redirects to the other? Why is that annoying? Perhaps I didn't understand your meaning properly...

    What more robust parsing features would you add to the app to improve it?

    I tried submitting my sitemap in bing. To my surprise, our traffic slipped. I tried to wait for weeks to see if it would go up again. It didn't. I'm not sure if that was the cause either. What I did was I deleted the sitemap and just added it in our robots file. After waiting for weeks, it went up again, notably this month. I did like the interface of bing, btw.

    Oh heh, I just saw there was a question for me up above.... examples:

    Disavow tool > Bing released theirs months earilier
    Exact search volume data > Was one of the unique selling propositions of sorts of bing webmaster tools
    Semi- correct link data > Launched first with bing webmaster tools, google later updated their link data to be more accurate afterwards

    I know I'm probably one of the few , but i am actually really a believer in this tool...especially when I'm working with sites that have a millions of pages, where the processing cost is too much for me to want to crawl it myself... sorry for the late response gabrielg
