Google Revamps Change Of Address Tool Within Webmaster Tools
Google's new Change Of Address Tool walks the user through the process of moving their site.
The new changes help walk-through a webmaster through the process of using the tool, while validating most of the important steps are complete. John said the tool will now “guide you through a part of the process” by:
- Double-checking that you have the sites verified
- Verifying the redirects are in place
- Confirming that the redirect doesn’t break verification
Here is a screen shot of the tool’s new interface:
Google believes this should help many of those who had issues with the tool previously. For more details on how to move your site, read Google’s help documentation.
