Bing Webmaster Tools

Bing Webmaster Tools is a must-have for organizations looking to improve their SEO. Google is the main focal point, but you cannot forget about Bing! With Bing Webmaster Tools, you are able to look at analytics and correct any errors that exist on your site. Essential to your web presence on Bing.

There are many tools in the SEO world and I had a subscription to several of them over the last year. In my opinion, this product is well suited for organizations of all sizes, large or small like a one-man band such as myself. I do not know of any scenarios where Semrush would be less than appropriate.

Pros

Bing Webmaster Tools

  • Clarity. Bing Webmaster Tools is well-designed and easy to navigate, even for beginners.
  • Keyword rankings. Gives more visibility than Google Search Console into how your website ranks for specific keywords.
  • In-program SEO editing. Allows you to submit URLs, disavow links, block URLs, control BingBot's crawl, and more.
Griffin Hansen | TrustRadius Reviewer

Semrush

  • Semrush is the cream of the crop in terms of comprehensive search engine data. It is excellent for keyword research and understanding how many people search for a term, how difficult it is to rank for the keyword, how much it would cost to run ads for, and also see what websites currently rank for that word. Semrush provides suggestions for related keywords all from one seed keyword, which makes it an efficient process.
  • Semrush is great for identifying technical SEO issues on our clients' websites. It has its own crawler which checks all pages for areas to improve or fix errors and issues to follow best practices in SEO. It helps uncover these issues that otherwise would take forever to find by skimming the site manually.
  • Semrush helps us analyze competitor websites, with data on keywords, pages, traffic metrics and trends, and even will show some of their ads.

Cons

Bing Webmaster Tools

  • The user-interface isn't as friendly or appealing as Google's - very bland overall.
  • The way they present their Page Traffic report is a big turn-off. It's basically just a grid of numbers and arrows which is hard to interpret at a high level.
Jordan Harpst | TrustRadius Reviewer

Semrush

  • It would be nice to be able to track a specific URL and have that saved so I can go back and look at specific pages I want to follow, not just highest traffic or top keywords without haveing to go to the next level. Post tracking is limited to 3 at the first level.
  • Pricing is on tiers, so some features just are out of reach for a small company.
  • It has a bit of a learning curve so if you aren't ready to learn it, you might not use it.

SEMRush has a slight learning curve, but everything is organized really well. Once you learn where everything is, using the software and running reports is incredibly easy. You can easily add new projects, get help for improving on-page SEO, and there are even video tutorials that walk you through the whole system if you still feel uncomfortable with it.

The support for Bing Webmaster Tools is responsive and very helpful. They have a "help" section for all frequently asked questions along with phone/email support. I would recommend that they add a chat support feature to assist with questions/issues that the user may experience. Screen share and chat support are my recommendations.

They've been great whenever I've contacted them, although I haven't needed to contact them for much. When I have, I believe it was through their support messaging system, and I got a response later that day or maybe the next day, and they addressed my concerns promptly and to my satisfaction.

Alternatives Considered

Bing Webmaster Tools

I think that Bing does a good job of being a competitive product in a space that has very basic and insanely complex products. While Bing isn't pretty, it gets the job done and also gets you the right tools in a simple and straight forward backend UI. The ability to place Bing ads, track SEO and see how your site is performing, all from one backend interface is awesome!
Jon Ackerman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Semrush

[Semrush] is a better overall tool for SEO management. It has so many different tools that you can use. Moz doesn't offer everything, but has its own benefits, which are more focused around serps and keywords. Ahrefs is particularly good when working with backlinks. Much stronger than [Semrush]. I would say the other tools are great for advanced SEOs, and [Semrush] is great for anyone in marketing.

Return on Investment

Bing Webmaster Tools

  • Not really an ROI product but the ability to do more tasks than google is something that can be used as added value for clients
  • Having another search engine to do reporting on helps increase hours and client spend
  • some issues flagged in bing but not seen in google can be fixed once shown in BWT
Eamonn Kelly | TrustRadius Reviewer

Semrush

  • ROI for us is proven pretty quickly with SEMrush internally, as when we use it for our clients it supports the agency services that we offer and perform.
  • For our organization, internally, it allows us to better market ourselves, which leads to net new leads and clients.
  • The spend for this tool is minimal compared to the insights it helps us gain, so it's a no-brainer. It's been one of the software we've kept a subscription to for the longest time, and we have no plan on discontinuing it at any point.
