In this chapter, we will take a look some additional feature which Bing Webmaster has for website users. We will discuss them while going trough last set of navigation menu in BWT.

BTW widgets and message

1. Knowledge Widget: This widget when integrated with your website or blog allows users to get more information about words and phrases on your page using Bing’s Knowledge Graph. It is Javascript code which you need to add to your website and below are the steps to do it.

  • Navigate to the Knowledge Widget tool by tapping or clicking Widgets > Knowledge Widget in the navigation menu.
  • Next, In the Knowledge Widget screen, enter a friendly name for your widget to make it easier to find later, and click or tap Create.
  • Next you will see the Knowledge Widget Settings screen. Locate the Copy Code button and tap or click it to copy the code to your clipboard.
  • At this point you can already paste the code you just copied into your web site’s or blog’s page source, for example just before the closing </body> tag. Any settings you make for this widget will stored in the cloud and will not require changing the code again (in fact, we use the data-id attribute as the key to lookup settings).
  • Do this for every page you want to enhance with Bing Knowledge Widget or, alternatively, add it to your site or blog template that automatically includes the embed code into every page.
