Google and Bing Duke It Out Over Webmaster FAQs

Last week, while you were doing your last minute shopping, Google and Bing were going head to head – over their Webmaster FAQs.

First, Bing took to their Webmaster blog to introduce the new, official Webmaster Center FAQ. They already had FAQ content in the help section and in the forums. The new FAQ compiles that content plus additional questions into a downloadable PDF document.

Three days later, Google said “Oh yeah? Me too” with a post about the FAQ on Webmaster Central. It has been compiled and maintained by high-participating users in the forums, affectionately referred to as “Bionic Posters.”

The good news for webmasters is that both Google and Bing are working to provide the best information for developing sites and getting them indexed.
