Bingbot goes evergreen

October 9, 2019

Bingbot will be evergreen as Bing adopts the Chromium-based Edge browser to render web pages and run JavaScript, Microsoft announced on Wednesday.

Why we should care

Since the new, evergreen Bingbot is based off of the Chromium platform — the same platform as Google’s Chrome browser and Googlebot — SEOs and developers should have an easier time getting their pages crawled by both search engines without having to research or troubleshoot for each particular crawler.

More on the announcement

  • Bing’s transition to Edge will be occurring over the next few months.
  • The company may change Bingbot’s user agent to allow rendering on some sites.
  • The next version of Microsoft Edge will adopt the Chromium open source project.
  • Microsoft announced its intent to contribute to the Chromium open source project and integrate it into the desktop version of its Edge browser in December 2018.
