Bing – This is why I don’t use you!

I’m a search engine optimization guy so I don’t discredit Bing at all.  They are another big search company to optimize for and pay attention too.   Buuuuuutttt….  This is annoying.

I’m looking to add a site to my Bing webmaster tools so I can track it.  Easy enough.  I figure just type in for the url and then search for webmaster tools.  It should be easy to assume that the first result would be Bing’s Webmaster tools page.  It isn’t.  Here’s my results I got.

Bing Webmaster tools search on

Bing’s results show me Google’s webmaster tools first?!?  Then the link I expect to be the login or the homepage for Bing’s webmaster tools…

Link to Bing Webmaster Tools

The third link on the search engine results page was the above page.  It’s not even where to log into webmaster tools or even sign up for it???? It’s a link to their toolbox?!? And no, when you click on the webmaster tools tab it doesn’t have a log in.

To Bing,
When I search Webmaster tools on I would appreciate at least a link on the first page to the site to log right into the application.  I think that seems appropriate.


They are gaining ground but really guys…. Are you trying to get people to use the service and increase the value of your search engine????

Just my two cents.  Let me know if you think I’m in the wrong or have any comments.  It’s ok, I can take the good, the bad, and the ugly….
