New Interface of Google Webmaster Tools
After the recent announcement of Google Webmaster Tools Spring Cleaning, Google Webmaster Tools is updated with new dashing navigation, revamped dashboard and compact view of home page site-list.
Here’s the new interface of Google Webmaster Tools Dashboard for www.example.com
Google have regrouped the features in Webmaster Tools to create an improved navigation structure (shown on the left-hand side of the above image) and distinguished the following groups into: Configuration, Health, Traffic and Optimization. Each group represents a related set of functionality.
- 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.
There is few minor changes on Google Webmaster Tools, some of the features were slightly renamed, such as HTML Suggestions became HTML Improvements, however the functionality remains the same. At the top of the Dashboard you can see recent, important, prioritized messages regarding your site. Just below that you’ll find another section which provides a brief summary of the current status of your site. There are three widgets displayed: Crawl Errors, Search Queries and Sitemaps, each representing a different navigation group: Health, Traffic and Optimization (respectively).
Finally, those who manage a large number of sites can choose to view your site-list a “Compact” layout, without the large site-preview thumbnails. Don’t worry, if you want the more expanded layout you can always switch back.
