Bing Webmaster Tools Bug Won't Allow Adding Sites

Sep 18, 2009 • 5:19 am | comments (2) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Bing Search

If you go to the Bing Webmaster Tools and login, then try to "add a site" to the list of sites you have rights to manage, you will get a page cannot be displayed type of page.

Here is a picture of the error I am seeing, as well as many other webmasters:

Bing Webmaster Tools Bug

There are dozens of threads on this issue at the Bing Forums and will likely be dozens more soon. There is also a thread at WebmasterWorld with complaints.

Microsoft is aware of the issue and hope to get it resolved soon. I hope it is resolved by the time this post goes live, which is about 20 hours after the first report of it.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld and Bing Forums.

I'm glad it's not just me - spent half an hour yesterday fighting with browser sessions thinking I was going crazy.
