How to Install Bing Webmaster Tools

The first thing you need to do to install Bing Webmaster Tools is to sign up for a Bing Webmaster account.  Although chances are pretty good that you use a different browser, you’re going to need to use Internet Explorer when working with Bing – nothing else is supported, and they flat our refuse requests from Google Chrome.

1. Head on over to the Bing Webmaster Tools page and login with your Windows Live account.  If you don’t have an Windows Live account, you’re going to need to sign up.
