New Google Webmaster Tools Interface Live

Posted by @ 11:22 pm

Google has launched a new Webmaster Tools interface for all users today after testing the design with a selected number of users over the last 3 weeks. The redesign brings a number of mainly cosmetic improvements including a new one-stop dashboard for each site, and more data on your core metrics like search queries.

The new dashboard is the most noticeable new feature; bringing together the most important data about your site. Your homepage now allows you to quickly see top search queries, links to your site, crawl errors and the status of your XML sitemaps.

Here’s how the new dashboard looks for ineedhits:


Some of the other major enhancements by Google include:

  • More top search queries – You can now monitor 100’s of queries
  • Message subscription – You can now subscribe to message notifications via email, instead of having to log in to your account
  • Improved navigation – Features are now easier to find with more logical grouping
  • Change of address feature – This lets you notify Google when you are moving from one domain to another allowing Google to update their Index faster and get your new content indexed.

As I mentioned earlier, the interface has been made default for all users, so to check it out for yourself, simply login to webmaster tools at!
