Bing Webmaster Forums Shutting Down

Over the last few years, we’ve had our Webmaster forums up and running. They’ve been around a while now in a few iterations, and like any community, the goal is to grow it to be vibrant and engaging. To foster the deep involvement of experts who help others, creating a community that contributes to improvements and makes its own gravity. There comes a time, however, when you sometimes need to re-evaluate, and once in a while, regroup.

Thus as of the end of May (or early June), we’re taking down our Bing Webmaster Community Forum, allowing us time and resources to focus energies in other directions.

For general questions, our Help & How To section is built to handle the top line stuff. This includes housing our Webmaster Guidelines and deeper dives on how to use our tools.

For deeper conversations, our Webmaster Blog will continue to publish weekly, with comments open to all who wish to participate on the posted topics.

If there is a problem with Webmaster Tools, or with how Bing is interacting with your website, as usual, our email support exists to offer help in legitimate cases.

Otherwise, there are a number of communities online today that house exactly the expertise folks seek. We participate at WebmasterWorld, and encourage folks to engage the community at large with questions.
