  Microsoft Live Search Webmaster Tools

Back in March, the "link:" operator function was removed from MSN Search, due to "mass automated usage for data mining". The MSN Search team then set about creating dedicated resources for webmasters (requiring users to sign-up & log-in), with the Private Beta of the MSN Search "Webmaster Portal" announced in August as "a single, friendly place to find all tools and information relating to Live Search SEO". Recently rebranded as the Live Search Webmaster Center, the webmaster / SEO tools are now open for a Public Beta from today...

Microsoft's Live Search Webmaster Center helps you make sure that their spider, the MSNBot, is effectively crawling your site: displaying when it was last crawled & how many pages are currently in the search engine's index. (If your site is blocked, you can identify & address the issue, then submit a re-inclusion request.) To ensure all your pages are being indexed, you can enter the location of your website's XML sitemap. Live Search Webmaster Center provides other statistics, including: Backlinks to your pages and the most popular Outbound Links from your site. And, you will also discover your site / pages Ranking, based on "the number and quality of websites that link to your pages, and the relevance of your website's content to keywords". You can follow the development of Live's webmaster tools at the new Webmaster Center Team's Blog, discuss the tools & inclusion in the search engine at the Webmaster Center forum, offer Feedback, and troubleshoot / learn more about how Live Search generates listings for your website with Site Owner Help
