  2. Hi Danillo,
    Thanks for sharing info on Bing site scan feature.
    I think they are doing a good job in adding more features like Google search console and will soon start getting attention from digital marketers and SEO experts as we all focus on only one search engine i.e. Google.
    Bing should launch structured data markup helper tool to improve schema markup on the website and optimize website.
