Bing To Retire Link Explorer Tool Within Bing Webmaster Tools On October 1, 2015

Bing will be retiring their Link Explorer Tool found in the Bing Webmaster tools on October 1, 2015. Its original release in 2012 was meant to replace Yahoo's Site Explorer feature in order to discover links for backlink analysis. With Bing growing so much, they no longer have access to the query information needed to run and manage the tool. To get competitive link data, users will now have to go through third-party tools.
