Bing Webmaster Tools To Acquire Bing Chat & Index Protection Reporting

Yesterday, Fabrice Canel from Microsoft Bing announced at PubCon that Bing Webmaster Tools would get two new features. First is the Bing Chat integration, and the second is the index coverage report.

The Bing Chat integration, where the Bing Webmaster Tools performance report will allow you to see impressions, click, click-through rates, and more from Bing Chat will be fantastic. It is something we’ve asked for from Google and Bing, that to alleviate publisher and site owner concerns; show us the data. Show us if people are clicking from the Bing Chat or Bard features to our sites.

So supposedly, this is coming to Bing Webmaster Tools, here is a screenshot from Twitter:
