New Google Webmaster Tools Now Live For All Users

In addition to the new Change of Address feature, Google has also announced that the new Webmaster Tools interface is now live for all users.


Content has been re-organized inside Webmaster Tools and the interface has been changed dramatically. The dashboard, for example, now shows Top search queries, Links to your site, Crawl errors, and Sitemap information.

Google says they’ve made several changes and bug fixes to the new interface based on user feedback over the past month, including:

  • Showing 100 rows of “Links to your site” by default
  • Fixing several statistical differences between the old and new interfaces
  • Changing how they decide to include links to show as “Links to your site” (the new interface doesn’t show redirected links)

In a separate announcement, Google has also added a tool that lets you forward emails from the Webmaster Tools Message Center to your personal email address, or any email address associated with your Google account.
