    This was a perfect training. It took me less than 60 seconds to connect BOTH of my sites. For those of you who have multiple sites, at the end of the easy connection to your first site in BING, it finds your other site and allows you to click IMPORT to connect it. So very easy.

    Thanks a ton for the help!
