Bing has made some additions to the calculation metrics offered by Bing Webmaster Tools. The new metrics include percent changes and deltas which have been added to certain reports. As Bing announced the percent changes will highlight the variation from the time selected and the time period prior to that. As Bing said in its blog post, “For the metrics Clicks from search, Appeared in search, Pages crawled, and Crawl errors we will now show you the percent change for the selected date range (as selected in the date selector near the top of the dashboard) compared to the prior date range of the same length. So when you log into your Bing Webmaster Tools account and are looking at changes for say a 30-day period in your Dashboard (which is the default setting), the percentage in the Site Activity widget will reflect your relative increase or decrease compared to the prior 30-day period.”

As explained above, Bing will now show the webmasters the percentage change that occurred between the last day of the chosen time period and the last day of the period before that. You can compare one day or 30 days or 3 months of data because you have 6 months of data available.
