Our New Webmaster Portal and an Invitation to the Private Beta

Shortly after that day in March when we had to take the  link: operator offline, a small team was formed in Redmond. Its singular focus: to build the next-generation set of tools, content and resources for SEO professionals and webmasters (and get  link: back in your hands). Creatively named Webmaster Portal (we’re really good at marketing), it will be a single, friendly place to find all tools and information relating to Live Search SEO. Initially we’ll support these scenarios:

  • Troubleshooting tools to ensure MSNBot is effectively crawling and indexing your site
  • Sitemap creation, submission and ping tools
  • Statistics about your website
  • Consolidation of content submission resources
  • New content and community resources

It’s expected to go Live later this year, and in the mean time, Live is looking for participants in their private beta program.

Check out Live Search’s Weblog for information on how to express your interest in participating in the beta program.
