Microsoft announced the release of new Inbound Links feature to its Bing Webmaster Tools, which now provides registered site owners the ability to easily & intuitively retrieve data about links to their sites. “We received plenty of feedback from site owners and SEOs that expressed the importance of this data to better understand how their sites are ranked in Bing and to make the right improvements,” stated Microsoft.
The new functionality allows you to:
- Understand the number of inbound links over a period of time to your site
- See number of inbound links by page including URL and Anchor Text details
- Export link data for offline analysis
It’s important to note that the count of inbound links will be based on content stored in the Bing index vs. a complete, comprehensive count of links between every page on the Internet.
