New Inbound Links Feature in Bing Webmaster Tools

We are pleased to announce the release of our new Inbound Links feature.

Bing Webmaster Tools 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. 

 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 is 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.
We are listening closely and adjusting our plans based on your input and feedback.  Please continue sending us your feedback, suggestions, and questions by posting a comment here or in the Bing Webmaster Tools & Feature Requests forum.

    AWESOME! Thank you! Definitely a GREAT decision in my opinion!

  2. Jusfitu

    Interesting! I am curious if this would correlate with ‘Windows Live’ removing the ‘Read team blog’ feature link for quick access to ‘’?

  3. DisgruntledGoat

    You guys need to fix your blog, fast. Every time I came to this page I got redirected to the Bing home page, until I logged in, then it worked. Lame!

  4. mobiledealsstore

    it is such  a great news.

  5. 3mdotcom

    This tool is a real plus and much appreciated.  We run a very large site.   Would very much value a means to filter or search the pages.

  6. Fun2Friend

    This is sure great improvement, but if you improve the crawling on web sites and indexing more pages in short time so it would be awesome.

  7. ax8l

    Great ! This is something that was really missing from bing!

  8. dvduval

    I do not see in links in my webmaster tools. I am assuming this has not been rolled out to everyone.

  9. skynett

    Happy to see this make it's way into the Webmaster Tools. This is one thing Google could really use some help with.

  21. keesjandeelstra

    I dont see it in my Bing Webmaster Tools. Is it a 'hidden feature'? Or is it masked out of lack of  usability?

  22. Computer Shop M4Asia

    M4Asia is best computer shop found in New Delhi NCR Region.. You can find great offers, with free computer services AMC. You can buy computers, laptops, computer hardware online.

  23. Fishman

    This is a great tool, I believe you're giving Google some competition.

  24. dusza

    I don't see it either. Please could someone who has access to the feature, let us numpties, who can't find it, where it is. Of course, it would have helped enormously if it was explained in the original post where we could find the in-bound links tool…

  25. laurent.bourrelly

    That's one of my favorite feature in Bing Webmaster Tools.

    Hope you come around with more transparency, regarding the way Bing behaves with our sites.

  26. VIEWZu

    You're starting to get it Bing. Good job.

    From the menu across the top, choose Index, and then on the right choose submit URLs. You can then submit a CR seperated list of URLs, with a max of 10 per day and 50 per month. I went through, banging my 10 a day and ran out fast. It also looks like if you have more then 1 stie, the daily and monthly totals are per site, not per bing tools account. Hope this helps

    so where is this located? I am usin Bing's webmasters tools but I found them very confusing. Like they are working against eveey logics in the world, and I do not know if this is just part of "unique" thinking or some thing else?

  36. Used Cars Under 1000

    Cool. Thanks a lot!

  37. CarnalRay

    Very useful. Another way to see inbound links and compare Bing's results and other search bots.


    This tool is a geat thing and much appreciated. ThankS=)

  39. dusza

    Thanks mtang for your help! Just in case anyone else can't find out how to get the number of inbound links to a site you have set-up in webmaster tools, here's how. Log in, then choose the web site in your list that you want to analyse. On the "Dashboard" page, just above the first set of graphs is a button labelled "Export Crawl, Index and Traffic Stats". Click on that and save or open the CSV file in Excel, or whichever spreadsheet program you use. The seventh column along reports the number of inbound links counted by Bing. Usefully, it's all dated too, so you can tell when the new inbound links were picked up (or dropped).
