Did you know that Bing has tasked BingBot, their crawler, to not just crawl the web but also to be used to verify your web site in Bing Webmaster Tools? Yea, if you use the meta tag verification method, BingBot will be the one who goes and checks for that meta tag.

Frédéric Dubut served that up as a new tidbit of information about Bing when he posted this on Twitter:

Do you think BingBot is overworked? Well, don't worry, it seems Bing is trying to reduce that work load...

Of course, DNS verification is the preferred route for Bing and it seems for Google as well.
