Bing Webmaster Tools Testing Sitemap Index Coverage Report In The Wild

Bing Sitemap Map

A few months ago, Fabrice Canel from Microsoft Bing, told us and even showed us an example, of a new Sitemap Index Coverage Report within Bing Webmaster Tools. It seems some are now seeing this report live for some of their verified profiles within Bing Webmaster Tools.

I don't see it yet, but Vijay Chauhan said he sees it and posted this screenshot on Twitter:

The report shows you the number of pages that are indexed, the number of pages not indexed. It plots both metrics on a graph over time. Plus it shows why some pages are no indexed, such as "content quality" errors or notices that the content has not yet been crawled.

Again, I do not see this report for any of the verified profiles I have access to in Bing Webmaster Tools. And I and Vijay Chauhan also do not see the new Bing Chat reporting that is expected to come soon as well. But Vijay does see this sitemap index coverage report.

Here is another screenshot from someone else:
