Bing Webmaster Tools

I always make sure that we are actively using Bing and Google. There is a tradeoff in your time when you use more tools, but there's also benefit in multiple perspectives. And don't forget that Bing is a very viable search engine that receives 500 million search queries each month. You may find that your business benefits from a relatively small amount of attention paid to Bing because search ranking there is easier (not easy, easier).

Textmetrics (formerly Webtexttool)

I honestly can't think of a scenario where WebTextTool (TextMetrics) would not be valuable for anyone writing content intended for publishing either online or in print media. If the intent is for print media, then even if you completely ignore the SEO section of the analysis, all of the other analysis tools intended for content are incredibly insightful and helpful. These days, even print media almost always ends up online in some form or another on the publisher's website or in a digital format of the publication. So the SEO tools can still give a little boost in reworking or rewording some parts to make sure they will be effective not only in print but online as well.

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.

Textmetrics (formerly Webtexttool)

  • WebTextTool (TextMetrics) assumes that each uploaded or typed in the article is intended for online publishing, mostly in a blog type environment. While this is a perfectly understandable assumption in this day and age, it shouldn't be so difficult to ask the question of whether the content is intended for online or print media.
  • The "Credibility" section tends to be a little too harsh for my taste. Depending on the style of writing and the type of content, "too many adjectives" is too subjective a metric to apply to all writing ( still, I do get why they try to do it).
  • This is a little nitpicky, but I'd prefer to see how many projects and credits I have left to use on the dashboard page as opposed to having to click over to my account. A dashboard should show everything that a user needs to see in one shot.

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.

I only had to reach out to TexMetrics once when initially getting my account setup after signing up. The response was swift, and they addressed my question completely. I've had no other issues since I began using TextMetrics, so based on that one interaction, I have to give them a great score. I assume that it is still the same as when I reached out that one time (at least I hope it is!).

Alternatives Considered

Bing Webmaster Tools

Google Search Console used to be very similar to Bing Webmaster Tools (or vice versa) but Google Webmaster Tools recently changed their interface so now using it is a bit of a learning curve. They still both do the same things for their respective search engines and we plan on using both of them.

WebTextTool plugin works like a charm, but it should better integrate with Yoast, as it would create a huge benefit.
