About a week ago, I provided exclusive screen shots of the new Microsoft Live Search Webmaster Tools portal. It appears that as of last night, Microsoft has released the http://webmaster.live.com/ to the public, as a beta.

So far, there is a lot of discussion at DigitalPoint Forums and WebmasterWorld on the release and not much about the features inside of the tool.

Ben, Chris and I discussed some of those features on the Search Pulse last night. In short, Microsoft has a long way to go with this tool. Very long way to go.

There is currently not much help documentation, nor support for the tool as far as I can see. You can give feedback about the tool over here, if you are signed into the "Connect site."

Forum discussion at DigitalPoint Forums and WebmasterWorld.

As usual Microsoft cannot manage a sign up process properly. I tried inputting my sites details into their system and all it tells me is and I quote:- Sorry, something went wrong. Please try again. Not exactly the most helpful error message in the world. I have double and triple checked the fields are completed properly but not matter what I get that message. After the hassle I had with Office Live I knew I shouldn't have bothered with this.
