Google or Bing Webmaster ToolsThere is a nice discussion at Sphinn asking which webmaster tools product is better - Google or Bing?

Google's has been around much longer and have released many many updates. But Bing just released a major upgrade with some unique features.

Bing and Google have their advantages but there is no doubt, the majority of you who use any tool use Google Webmaster Tools over Bing. But why? Is it because Google has more market share or Google has a better tool?

Most of you have looked at Bing Webmaster Tools, if you haven't, you should.

Take 20 minutes to review both and then come back here and take my poll.

Which tool offers a better toolset? Bing Webmaster Tools or Google Webmaster Tools?

Forum discussion at Sphinn.

At least until this major update from Bing, Google Webmaster tools was far more useful. Now, and considering the recent events, I think it's a tie but soon Bing might overcome the big G. It all depends on how Google reacts.

I would say Google however; Bing has a nice dashboard which shows traffic, indexed pages, crawl summary and errors on one page.  Bing should update their webmaster tools to allow you to compare data ranges.  I love the slider which allows you to view 6 months worth of data.   Hands down Google has a lot more intuitive tools. I wonder how long it will take Microsoft to develop a social button like Google Plus One.

I'd have to say Google still. Bing's tools are getting better, but the navigation is still a bit clunky and the data is not as easy to read as GMT.

No contest.  Google Wins hands down.  It is much more comprehensive and intuitive.

People use google more because of habit. Like every one I was also a google user till 2009. But since bing came into existence I have been using it & have been more benefited. Have worked on search engines a bit I can say the bing does more intelligent search (better semantic search & more). And with time bing is getting better. Try to compare with complex searches and see whcih gives you better result faster. My vote is for bing. It is much better..

I vote in favour of Google. They are a class act. Known all over the world, there is hardly any middle class prick out there who does not know Google. Their webmaster tools are equally exuberant as the search engine itself. Besides, Bing still looks an untested product. It has not enjoyed the kind of success Google has. So as an end user, I doubt Bing’s credentials. Google scores up and above Bing hands down.

I would say Google is better not just because most people use it and I've used it most of my life it is because the way bing navigates is to off while the searches are nice they just dont do enough with the feel of it. Google is simple but not too simple where i can just type something in get the results and be done with it while Bing does that but they make it to elaborate I personally prefer that there are not so many hover drop downs and so many pictures just showing off where as Google just has the home screen when you type in google.com then search then just scroll and see what you want nothing more nothing less. This is just expressing my opinion you may have views difrent from mine and i accept that

I prefer Google because of it's simplicity. Not so much clutter and ads. And, this is a tiny reason, once you type in a keyword Google automatically searches it. Bing you still have to press the enter button. :)
