Google Webmaster Tools Cleans Up With Dashboards, New Navigation & More
Google announced on the Webmaster Central blog that they have cleaned up Google Webmaster Tools. The three changes include:
(1) Updated Dashboard
(2) New Left Hand Navigation
(3) Home Compact View
Here is a picture of the revised dashboard:
The new navigation was changed to be more representative of the content and tools within the portal. Google explained:
- Configuration: Things you configure and generally don’t change very often.
- Health: Where you look to make sure things are OK.
- Traffic: Where you go to understand how your site is doing in Google search, who’s linking to you; where you can explore the data about your site.
- Optimization: Where you can find ideas to enhance your site, which enables us to better understand and represent your site in Search and other services.
