Bing LogoThe day has come, the return of the discontinued Yahoo Site Explorer in the form of Bing Link Explorer.

Bing has announced some incredible new tools for Bing Webmaster Tools now really setting it apart from Google. The new Bing Webmaster Tools is completely revamped but the most exciting feature for me is the new Link Explorer.

Link Explorer lets you look up links for any site on the web, like Yahoo Site Explorer did but with more filters. Here is a look at the filter options:

The options include filter by site, anchor text, query, scope and source. This is pretty good news. I have yet to really test it because I am writing this while in a lounge about to fly back to New York after SMX but this step by Bing is huge.

Other changes and features include:

  • New User Experience
  • New: SEO Reports
  • New: SEO Analyzer
  • New: Fetch as Bingbot
  • New: Canonical Alerts
  • Updated: URL Removal Tool
  • Updated: Keyword Research Tool
  • Updated: URL Normalization
Bing has a nice blog post explaining all the changes and Vanessa Fox has a great write up at Search Engine Land.
