Live Search Introduces Domain Rank & Page Rank Green Bars

Nov 15, 2007 • 7:27 am | comments (6) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Bing Search

As many of you saw in the first images of Live Search Webmaster Tools, webmasters can now login to Live Search Webmaster Tools and find their "Domain Rank" and the "Rank" of their top pages.

Here is an image of "Domain Rank": Live Search Green Rank Bars

And here is an image of my "Top Five Pages" by "Rank": Live Search Green Rank Bars

Why is Microsoft calling these bars "Rank"? Why are they green bars? Is it way too similar to Google's PageRank brand?

Other questions I had was, do people actually see pages with less than five green bars? The answer to that is yes. Some folks at a DigitalPoint Forums thread reported having only one bar for some of his sites.

Anyway, is this too similar to Google? Remember Yahoo's WebRank score in their toolbar?
